In one of those weird web coincidences, I was going to post this clip and then discovered that Ken Levine posted it recently too. I also just watched the preview of the new FOX show Human Target and it features a train that looks a lot like this, but I’m sure this train isn’t in service anymore. People of a certain age might remember this show. What a cast! Steve Lawrence! Don Meredith! Char Fontaine! (?) It looks like The Love Boat, only on a train, and I’m sure that’s exactly how it was pitched to the networks. The theme song is CHiPs mixed with Charlie’s Angels.
I remember being really excited about this show for some reason, but I guess that happens when you’re 13 years old. Donald Westlake was one of the creators.
