Iron Horse – Starring Dale Robertson
The Iron Horse is an action packed American Western television series that appeared on ABC from 1966 to 1968. It featured Dale Robertson as fictional gambler-turned-railroad baron Ben Calhoun. Costars included Gary Collins, Robert Random and Ellen Burstyn.
After winning the railroad in a poker game, Ben must try to complete the construction of the Buffalo Pass, Scalp Lock & Defiance Railroad with the help of Dave, the construction engineer. Each episode he must fight 1880s Indians, bankers and bad guys to complete the line.
Much of the external footage involving trains was shot on the historic Sierra Railroad in and around Jamestown and Sonora, California. This series was so popular at the time that they even had a comic book and other franchise merchandise. Very nice quality, on most of these episodes. We’ve included some lesser quality episodes on Disc 10 labeled as a Bonus Disc. Rod Cameron, Tim Hutton, Victor Jory and Pat Conway all guest Star. 10 DVD-R set.
