Well ... I'm pretty sure any "painstaking restoring & remastering" was done by Universal, not by Timeless. I was told that Timeless was going to access Uni's tape masters on the color season of Wagon Train (which has been syndicated recently in Canada) for this release, which is what they did with Laredo. Hopefully they'll look pretty good, especially since they'll only have 2 1/2 hours of content per disc, instead of five hours, which resulted in what I thought was ruinous compression on the Laredo sets. I had also heard that Timeless was going to take a different & more ambitious approach to the earlier Wagon Train seasons, and I'm at a loss to explain why this has changed (the vault fire could be the culprit, I guess). I'm not clear on whether the John McIntyre-era episodes will be sourced from 16mm prints or tape, but I'd guess the former.
