- Yeah. I see 'em.

For God's sake, Harry, jump!

Let's go! Jump!

Get off the train.

- I can't see.

- Jump.

- Johnson, is that all of them?

- I'll find out, Captain.

Can't see a soul.

Give those hornets some smoke

and get them out of there.

I don't want 'em there when I go in.

It's all yours, Captain.

Yes, sir.

We're going faster than we figured.

Can you slow it down?

- Brakes don't do no good, Captain.

- We're gonna hit hard.

You'd better find a good hold.

- Good work, Sergeant.

- Have any trouble?

- Not much.

- Bide's handling the gold.

The horses are here.

You'll be all right, Jim.

- What happened?

- They greased the track.

They jumped us and knocked us out.

When I came to, the train was gone.

- Can you get this thing going?

- No, sir. All the steam is gone.

- So much booty!

- Hand me some.

We got plenty for everybody.

- We got the gold all right, sir.

- Get it loaded quickly.

It's heavy, Sarge.

Let's go. Keep it moving.

Corporal, get that wagon started.

Let's not take all day, men.

All right, move out.

- How is he, Corporal?

- He's got a bad cut on his shoulder.

- I'll be all right.

- What's the matter with your face?

- They threw a hornet's nest in the car.

- That's why we had to jump, sir.

- Where's Lieutenant Forsythe?

- Down the track. He's hurt pretty bad.

- Lieutenant.

- Yes, sir.

Stand at ease. Fall out and give 'em

a hand here. Move forward!

Colonel McNally, over here.


Sorry, sir. But we couldn't stay

in that car with all those hornets.

I know. Can you feel this?

Colonel, those Rebs had to know

beforehand about that gold.

- They sure as hell did.

- They sure got the jump on us.

- Can you feel this, Ned?

- No. It just feels numb, sir.

Can you move your head?

No. But it doesn't hurt, sir.
