Storyline

Colonel MacKenzie is traveling on a train with Lark Walters, the young and sheltered daughter of a wealthy friend of his. At a stop in a town, he sees a young man shoot another man in self-defense. Later, MacKenzie saves the same young man from being lynched, and brings him onto the train, where the overly romantic Lark falls for the young stranger. MacKenzie tries to keep them apart, but Lark won't give up. Meanwhile, other men on the train hatch up a scheme to kidnap Lark and hold her for ransom, and try to get the young man, Tate, to join with them. This episode introduces Tate as a series regular.

Train Tyranny
4 June 2011 | by (Roseworthy, South Australia) – See all my reviews

Precious cargo, in the form of Miss Lark Walters, is being accompanied by Colonel MacKenzie by train to her uncle's place. Whilst in a town for a break Lara and the Colonel see a fist fight that ends up in a lethal gun fight!

Back on the train the Colonel Alan Mackenzie is up on the engine with the driver and a lynching is brought to his attention as they are travelling onward. On seeing this the Colonel insists the train stop so he can thwart the hanging and subsequently invites the reprieved man on board.

Lark is interested in the newcomer but is instructed to keep away from the stranger whose mysterious identity and history is a matter of interest to others on the train.
