Spaghetti Western Trivia ~ Sergio Leone doubles down on train stations

Many of Sergio Leone’s film locations are seen in different films. He had a habit of turning the camera a different angle and therefore could use the same location he had used in a previous film. A prime example is in “Once Upon a Time in the West”. In the opening scene at Cattle Corner if you look across the track from the water tower you’ll see a small building. This was  the Tucumcari Station seen in “For a Few Dollars More. In the scene where Jill arrives in Flagtone you can see across the tracks in the background to the station where Tuco was loaded on to the boxcar in “The Good, the Bad and the Ugly”.
