The Twilight Zone: ‘A Stop at Willoughby’

Gart Williams is a New York media buyer who has grown exasperated with his career. His overbearing boss, Oliver Misrell, angered by the loss of a major account, lectures him about this “push-push-push” business. Unable to sleep properly at home, he drifts off for a short nap on the train during his daily commute through the November snow.

He wakes to find the train stopped and changed into an 1880s railcoach, deserted except for himself. The sun is bright outside, and as he looks out the window, he discovers that the train is in Willoughby and that it’s July 1888.

Original air date: 5/6/1960
