Saving Mr. Banks

Other mistake: Travers arrives in Los Angeles and is seen at the airport and the hotel a short time later with just a small suitcase and a smaller carry-on bag, yet she has far too many clothes-suits, dresses, skirts, sweaters, blouses, sleepwear, shoes, and other accessories-than could possibly fit in them. She is seen leaving L.A. with an additional suitcase, but the third one appears to be one that is just used for carrying the big Mickey Mouse stuffed toy she takes back to London.

P.L. Travers: I will not have her called Cynthia, absolutely not. It feels unlucky. It should be something warm, a bit sexy. How about Mavis?

Mistakes

In the scene where the young Helen Goff is traveling by train with her family, it's obvious that an American engine and coaches have been used, instead of a Queensland Rail locomotive of the era. None of the QR locomotives had flared smokestacks like on the one seen in the movie. The coaches are also incorrect - as far as I know, none of the Queensland Rail wood coaches had clerestory roofs with a set of windows in them like seen in the movie. When Helen looks out the back of the train, it's also obvious that the tracks are spaced at 'standard gauge' (4' 8.5"). They should be closer together, as railways in Queensland are built to 3'6" gauge instead. There is also no such company as the 'Queensland Victoria Railway Co', as marked on the coaches, as all railways in Australia are state owned.
