Just before the Civil War (but after the South has seceded), Southern saboteurs try to prevent railroad construction from crossing Kansas to the frontier; army captain Nelson is sent out to oppose them.

When Capt. Nelson throws the lit dynamite out of the locomotive cab and uphill at the bushwhackers, it's clear that not only does he not have room to throw the dynamite from inside the cab, but also because of the window size and roof overhang, it would be impossible to throw the dynamite more than a few feet out of the cab. The bushwhackers are at least 100 feet away up a hillside behind some large boulders overlooking the track and shooting down at the train. See more
