I believe that technically what it really is, is an first class omnibus.  Afro

I've seen images of larger ones (like in DYS) with three axels (one in front two in rear), and double decker ones also.

Do you know some historical details about omnibuses, CJ?

I heard the stagecoach was so big and heavy the horses weren't able to pull it over long distances

I was also wondering if that number of horses we see in the film was enough for that stagecoach...

I think it was because it was very sandy soil, the wheels sunk into the ground in the soft spots and the stage/omnibus was also very heavy.

During Sibley's campaign in the Journada Del Mueta desert the artillery & limbers got bogged down in sandy patches enough to require a lot of soldiers to free them.

They needed 20 mule teams in the desert areas of California to move 36 1/2 tons of double wagons loaded with borax & water.
so a little math 36.5/20 = 1.825 ton per mule. Now all we need to find out is how much the coach weighed. Afro

I saw the film Sunday night for the first time, other than being blown away by the film and I should have known that I would be...but I must admit I too while watching the stagecoach scene thought woah what a ride..

That was a rather intense moment in the film.

Thanks, CJ! I'll read it later, now I have too much to catch up with on this board, but I saved them. Smiley
