Deadwood Stagecoach! These are the kind of "props" that Buffalo Bill used in the Wild West show. For me, it's a great indicator of the quality of the production. And the size of it makes me think about the logistics that would've gone into transporting, people, animals, "props", tents, etc. around the world during that time. Quite a feat!
