First off, welcome to the boards ZB. When I saw this the first time I got confused as well but it's really simple. The fireman ( turning the wheel near the tender in the second picture ) is not the same person as the guy in the third picture. The guy in the third picture is at the rear of the train on what appears to be some kind of flatcar loaded with lumber.

yea there were no air brakes back then and every car had a break wheel that the brakemen would have to turn to slow the train.

That's true. The air brake wasn't invented until the 1880's by George Westinghouse and wasn't used widespread until the 1890's. Just goes to show how Leone loved detail.

There is a goof I've noticed. In the second picture you can see the shadw of the locomotive, the smokestack is narrow and thin. The locomotive we see pull into the station has a funnel-shaped smokestack. Anyone else notice that?
