12. Why is there an old railroad track buried at Sweetwater (as discovered by Cheyenne)?

McBain was a railroad man, (that's how he knew the trains would need water and why he picked Sweetwater for his "ranch") the route was laid out way in advance of actual construction why not get a wagon and haul a few rails and ties out and lay them in place so the station can be built around the tracks, remember he already ordered the wood, sign, etc, etc for the station, when the construction arrives they just have to connect it to what he's got laid out.

The release date on all the websites now is September 26, 2017.

I'll do the pre-order with price guarantee. It can't hurt.

Surely some folks would've have noticed that McBain's supplies included some train track rails, and then there would have been no mystery what McBain was up to out there...

What you have to remember is that the route would have been laid out five or more years in advance.  McBain knowing of this had plenty of time purchase the Sweetwater location and to get the supplies and haul them out there well before the boomtown of Flagstone was even on the map. Rails were available at bigger towns especially in mining district areas at hardware stores for miners.

The railroad and it's route engineers knew what was going on since they gave him the contract for the station. The clueless locals probably had no idea what was going on, hence thinking he was crazy.

Thanks, I'll cancel my UK order and get it in the US. That means I'll have it in hand all the quicker.

Hey, Drink, did you notice this?

Release date is now May 2018  :(

As Herry Grail noted on page 1 of this thread, where he shared various links where one can pre-order the book http://www.fistful-of-leone.com/forums/index.php?topic=12605.msg183802#msg183802 , you can't even search for the book on Amazon - nothing comes up. It only works if  you have the link.
It says the book is not available - you can't even pre-order it now. (I already did, a while ago.)

And the OUATITW grandma undies are no longer available https://www.amazon.com/ALLHA-Womens-Low-Waist-Thongs-Panties-r-nBriefs/dp/B01ER4K95U/ref=sr_1_cc_2?
