Factual error: The film is set in Western Australia during the early 1930's. The aboriginal children are being transported to a government mission by train. The scene shows a famous steam locomotive "3801" built for New South Wales Govt. Railways in 1943. This locomotive is now well known in Australia. It made the record breaking trip for steam across the Continent to Western Australia after the trans continental railway was completed in the 1960's. (00:14:10)
