Made in Concord by skilled Yankee craftsmen, the Concord Coach was extremely rugged and able to travel over what passed as roads in the west. They used a 6 horse team and weighed 2500 pounds and in the 1880's, cost around $1200.00 The windows were closed with curtains during inclement weather. It carried nine passengers inside and as many more as could clamber on top, plus mail and up to a half ton of baggage. The driver and guard rode atop the coach, being exposed to the elements, Indians, and outlaws.
