“Stagecoach West” was an American Western series which ran for 38 episodes on the ABC network from October 4, 1960, until June 27, 1961.

The show was a spin-off of “Dick Powell's Zane Grey Theater.”

It's a shame so many of these westerns never lasted very long.

Thanks again for another great find.

I can't remember watching this, although I loved Zane Grey Theater. Stagecoast West had some actors in it. :thumbup
