The locomotive used for the American train sequence is named the Jupiter, one of the locomotives at the Golden Spike ceremony. However it's a 2-8-2 freight engine with small drive wheels. The real Jupiter was a 4-4-0 passenger locomotive with large drivers. The locomotive in the movie is powerful but slow, and would never have been used to pull a passenger train on the prairie.
There are no opening credits. The film begins with 'Edward R. Murrow (I)' narrating a prologue showing the history of flight. Then, the actual story begins with no opening credits whatsoever.
