Union Pacific - Frontier train
featured on the western adventure UNION PACIFIC/SYN/1958.
The series followed the story of Bart McClelland (Jeff Morrow), a
railroad supervisor for the Union Pacific. Based in Dale, Wyoming in
the late 1800s, Bart was charged with completing the railroad line
between Omaha and Cheyenne.
His colleagues included:
Judd Pratt as Bill Kincaid, chief surveyor
Susan Cummings as Georgia, the operator of the Golden Nugget Saloon,
a camp-following dance hall set inside a railroad car.
The series was loosely based on the film Union Pacific (1939)
directed by Cecil B. DeMille.
Ricardo's offer to star in the MGM film version of Don Juan was
shelved (during the 1954-55 season of I LOVE LUCY), he left the
Beverly Palms Hotel in Hollywood and returned East to New York with
his family and friends on Union Pacific Engine No. 997. The
travelers stayed in trains 104, 107, and 108. When they arrived in
New York, they took a Globe Cab to their apartments.
