Storyline

Tough, self-made railroad owner Gus Morgan wants to tunnel his rail line through a mountain. His much younger college-educated brother Ethan, distressed over twenty men, including a close friend, who were killed attempting to build the tunnel, wants to find an alternate path up and around the peak and use an extra engine to pull the load. Hale having been a surveyor in the area guides the two brothers as they trace Ethan's proposed route, Hale is accidentally wounded when Ethan slips and his gun discharges. The three men are caught in a blizzard, and their horses run away. When Ethan collapses, Gus, unable to carry both men, is faced with a terrible dilemma and makes a decision which will weigh on all three of them. Written by rbecker28

A Tough, but conflicted man
4 April 2013 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

The Wagon Train comes very close to having to get along once again without its wagonmaster as John McIntire gets himself shot on a mountaintop. For reasons I'm not quite sure as he is the wagonmaster and his first responsibility is the Wagon Train he guides railroad president Peter Falk and his younger brother Tommy Sands to the top of a mountain so they can survey possible railroad sites. Then as they're going down the mountain Sands accidentally trips and shoots McIntire. As the snows start, so does the drama.

I won't say more as the drama does get real intense and the pressure is particularly on Falk. It would have made far better sense to have either Terry Wilson or Denny Miller doing the guide work. Still the brothers have a lot of issues and Falk delivers a really good performance as a tough, but conflicted man.
