Series profile

Each episode consists of two tales.[1]

The show stars the husband and wife team of Vincent Price and Coral Browne, playing the roles of Jason and Margaret Winters, the sophisticated hosts of the Time Express, a train that takes its passengers back in time to relive a crucial point in their lives. The train is staffed by James Reynolds as the conductor R.J.Walker; Woodrow Parfrey as the ticket clerk; and William Phipps as Engineer Callahan, who collectively appear in the first three episodes.
