Revealing mistake: In the scene where the children are stopping the train with the red petticoats, just before the train has completely halted, you can see the reverse effect used in the film. The train is actually reversing away from them for safety, and when reversed, the red petticoats are swaying with unnatural movements as they're being waved by the children.
