Next, Mr. Duncan disappears gathering wood. While tending a signal fire the Major disappears followed later by Hawks. The members of the train are in a panic with Wooster left in charge. At the panicked urging of the people and especially John Loring, Wooster heads the train back toward the southern pass. As they reach it, more people disappear.

Wooster's in command
16 September 2013 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Frank McGrath as comical Charlie Wooster takes center stage in this Wagon Train episode when first Robert Horton, then Ward Bond, then Terry Wilson disappear in the Sierras on that last leg of the trip to California. A few other of the passengers disappear as well and that leaves Wooster the cook in charge.

Douglas Kennedy is one of the passengers who has lived in the mountains himself and knows full well when the snows come people can disappear. This however is quite beyond the laws of probability and Kennedy has his own agenda.

There's an explanation for all the disappearances and its man made, nothing to do with the elements. This was a really good Wagon Train episode.
