Continuity mistake: After Mickey hides Pluto in his suitcase in Burbank, Mickey picks up his cane and runs to the train, then when Mickey actually jumps onto the train caboose he's only carrying his suitcase, he does not have his cane, nor does he have Pluto's suitcase (which had been filled with bones) with him.
