- —Barbwire salesman to Doc
The following morning, September 7, the salesman boarded a train pulled by Locomotive 131 for San Francisco, alongside Clara. He had been discussing his encounter with a friend of his when Clara overheard him. She asked him if he had "big puppy dog eyes" and "silvery flowing hair" and he realized that she knew him. Clara stopped the train by pulling on the emergency cord and the salesman waited for the train to restart. His trip would again be cut short when Doc and "Clint Eastwood" hijacked the locomotive and uncoupled the cars from the engine before Carson Spur. The salesman and the other passengers continued to sit on the train.
Behind the scenes
The salesman was portrayed by Richard Dysart.
