the only two ways to turn around a train is  either a Wye or a turntable

That's what you get, Drink, for being such an annoying Melville fanboy.

I did notice it. Butit is the same poitn as eastwood shooting at tuco with the canon: he doesnt even need to move it a bit (and the cannon was pointing at the wrong side since the north soldiers were behind it. Strange, isn't it? That's just because such characters are a little magic. They are only movie characters. The thing with blondie is more magic than the one with the trains because Blondie isjust a kind of God with a psitol in the wild west, wherease Sean is more human (even if he can kill a whole army with the help of one friend). all of it is impossible, but in the atmosper of these movies, it works:)

well I can see that as totally possible. I'm pretty sure anybody could kill an entire platoon with a machine gun that is positioned way up high. of course the help of another is always useful.

or maybe I havent the slightest clue what I'm talking about.

Well the pont is they seem to be a bit far. Moreover, machine guns make smoke and noise which help the user to be saw by his targets. Such numerous soldiers, if they were only a bit trained, could IMO react like professional and not like amators (what they did in the movie). Of course, I'm talking about things that I don't know better than you, firercracker:)

You also have to understand the psychology of humans, it was a surprise attack. When something unexpected occurs, the human mind is slow to react.

Right. But i think this scene is possible under the only condition that these soldiers are beginers. i think once you have seen a few battles, you become more professional. But if it is there first or second one, their training may become completly useless since they are not used to be as endangered.

There was an American mercenary in the MexRev, that was an expert machine gunner and he was able to stop an artillerary battalion from getting to occupy a hill.

Really? Do you have his name and other informations on him? We should shoot a movie about this guy:) (must be Django's brother or cousin)

His name I believe was Franklyn, and he fought with the Villistas and Madero against Orozco it was during the battle for Parral. Orozco's artillery train pulled by mules couldn't get to the top of a hill that would have commaded the town. Villa ran out of ammo or something and had to evacuate, and this Franklyn from El Paso didn't get the word and was captured in a phamacy in town and was executed the next day.
