Stephen McNally (as Steve Davis) and Alexis Smith (as Mary Williams) star in this “tribute” to the beginnings of the Railway Post Office (or RPO). The Union Pacific Railroad is having trouble out in Wyoming with bandits robbing the mail from trains. Armed guards, the US Marshall’s office — no one can seem to stop the pillage. Enter Steve Davis — sent in as a troubleshooting, two-fisted, rip-snortin’, undercover government agent to catch and foil the train robbers.
Train scenes were mainly filmed on the Sierra Railroad using locomotives #3 and #18. As western pictures go, this one is rather bloodthirsty with practically everyone getting shot at some point. The big hullabaloo at the end features a baggage car the bad guys blow up with dynamite. As in many movies of this type, train scenes occur at the beginning and the end with just your standard oater western action inbetween.
Will the mail finally get through? Let’s find out!
Everybody’s shooting somebody in the finale of Wyoming Mail. Even the engineer of Sierra #3 takes a pot shot at the bad guys.
