When America's first transcontinental railroad project got underway in 1865, it was referred to as "Hell on Wheels" by the inhabitants of the settlement that accompanied its construction.
From surveyors and support workers to prostitutes and mercenaries, characters of all kinds made this mobile encampment their home.
Could there be another series too finish it off happily?
Overall well made series, more of the same please.
PLEASE bring this back
Without diving so deeply into the racial issues of the time that they would consume and ruin the show, they are still able to provide a limited education to many that even a former Confederate soldier may not be the racist history tells us that anyone from the South must have been.

Character development can be slow or take a huge jump and that keeps one wondering. And paying attention!
I can't wait till it returns!
