I'm really enjoying the episodes of WAGON TRAIN now airing on Encore Westerns...more so than I thought I would. I was (and am) a big fan of Robert Horton and was always disappointed when episodes would air that he was barely in. To me the show went down hill when Bond died (even though John McIntire has grown on me over the years, he seemed weak to me as the wagon master) and almost dropped off a cliff when Horton left the show. One of my favorite Golden Boots moments was when Robert Horton autographed a copy of TV Guide with him on the cover and the smile I got when I gave him a duplicate copy.

Like you Jangoz I'm a bit more pleased at the series so far also. I never cared for Ward Bond in this series. He was always so gruff and his dialoge with Horton is always derogatory. Even if this was written in the script and storylines it comes across as virile. There were some great actors in guest and cameo appearances which is a treat to see. I'm wondering, if like Cheyenne, as later episodes come along, will it be tied to backlot sets and stock footage.
