PREVIOUSLY: “Okay Rufus let’s plan our stop in Duluth.”
“We can’t just go to Duluth?”
“No—we can’t,” he replied, “You’ll remain here.”
Before Rufus could reply, Bell shot him—quite dead.
Bell rode on to Duluth’s Endion RR Station and bought a RR ticket to Saint Paul.
From there he’d take another train to Deadwood.
Episode 2—Scene 3… Inside Fort Wabanquot… Lt. Seth Adams & Sgt. Will Hutchinson, the only two survivors (save for the two who vanished) had been captured—and were now being interviewed (some might say, “interrogated”) by Wyatt & Chris Earp.
They didn’t hold-out long before telling all.
Season 17—Adventure 6—The Search—Episode 3—Scene 1… Inside Fort Wabanquot… “Okay… OKAY!” Lt. Seth Adams exclaimed, “We were recruited by Bell, because we’re both not all that happy with Indians controlling so much of Moosehead County.”
“Now—that’s just stupid,” Chris Earp replied, “The entire county is part of the Eagle Point Band of Ojibwe Reservation!”
“Yes, Adams,” Debra replied, “It is! How can you possibly not know this?”
Adams didn’t reply.
“Where can we find Bell?” Wyatt asked.
“He said something about Duluth,” Sgt. Hutchinson replied, “And maybe I overheard something about Deadwood in Dakota Territory.”
Captain Boomer nudged Lt. Jerkovich and whispered, “Adventure Train!”
Joey replied, quietly, “I’ll get it prepared.”
Episode 3—Scene 2… South of Danger Bay aboard the Adventure Train™… “Wheee!” Debra exclaimed, “I forgot how fast this train is capable of going!”
“And smooth,” Joey added.
“Maybe we can get to Deadwood before we left Danger Bay,” Chris wisecracked.
“Ya THINK?” Wyatt replied.
“Of course not.”
“Still—that would be a hoot.”
Big Mac just enjoyed being out of the saddle, “I feel a nap is a’comin’…”
And that’s just what he DID!
Episode 3—Scene 3… Colonel Milton Bell’s Train heading for Deadwood… Of COURSE—they were travelling at a MUCH slower speed than the Adventure Train™!
“We escaped, Boss!” Jay Johnson exclaimed.
“We escaped, Boss!”
“You think so, Jay?” Bell replied, “I tend to agree, BUT—our enemies have confounded us in the past.”
“How long will it take to get there?”
“I’m guessing several days, Jay, still, a good deal faster than by horseback.”
“And more comfortable.”
“I was getting a bit saddle-sore,” Bell added, “We’ll have get horses after we arrive—and before you ask—we’ll not steal them!”
