Still, no single railroad company ever stretched from the Atlantic to the Pacific.

I guess it would be Cheyenne because he was the one who killed " Mr. Choo-Choo. "

But men like Morton are similar to weeds. You kill one and another will take his place.

This is interesting, but it is certainly not Morton's RR. We see very clearly on the map in his train car (at 1:25:15 on the current Blu) that the line runs straight across from the east coast (a bit south of NYC) and never gets to Chicago, in fact, veers SW suddenly around Ohio or Indiana, then turns more westerly around Missouri or Arkansas before continuing on through OK, Texas, NM and AZ. I don't think Leone was concerned about following an actual RR line--it's all made up.

I shortened the libk for you; here it is http://goo.gl/AjGLDd
You can use it to replace the long libk so the page won't be stretched out - as lonb as everyone who quoted the link also removes it  Wink You can shorten links at goo.gl
