The show was a spin-off of “Dick Powell's Zane Grey Theater.”
Here's a link to season one, episode one:
Luke Perry (played by Wayne Rogers) and Simon Kane (played by Robert Bray) operate the Timberland Stage Line from Missouri to San Francisco. They come across a wide variety of killers, robbers, and ladies in distress.
Wayne Rogers as Luke
Robert Bray as Simon
They are accompanied by Simon's young son, David "Davey" Kane (played by Richard Eyer).
While Luke and Simon were on their cross country runs, the depot at Outpost was managed by Zeke Bonner (played by James Burke).
Actor Wayne Rogers (Luke on “Stagecoach West”) became popular a dozen years later on M*A*S*H.
