It is a bit of a technicality the train seen at the beginning and end of the movie was not the Durango and Silverton it was still the Denver and Rio Grande Western. In 1971 the DRGW was still owner and operator of the line and this trackage was still part of a class 1 railroad and not a tourist / heritage railroad. Even though DRGW was looking at the time for a buyer or just the permission to the interstate transportation board for abandonment of the rail grade. They would find neither until the mid 1980s.

Before he succumbs to it, Latigo states that in roulette the house has an 8% advantage and wins outright once every 12 spins. In reality, the house advantage is 5.26%, winning outright once every 19 spins.
