Continuity mistake: After the double train fails to slow train 777 and gets switched to another section of track, in the control room, you see the train has already partly gone around a bend on the TV screen behind the bearded character, then cuts to the TV report footage which shows the train continuing on for a few seconds, though when the scene cuts back to the train, it is only just beginning go around the same bend that it had already partly travelled.
Continuity mistake: In the big finale where Ned is racing alongside the train in his truck and picks up Colson, they have said that the 777 is at 75 mph and gaining speed toward 80. Yet the view of Ned's speedometer shows him just getting to 70 mph while he is passing the train. To be passing the train he would have to have been in the 90-100 mph range.
Continuity mistake: Change in the number of cars 1206 is suppose to haul. In the beginning of the film Frank and Will are in a truck with other engineers. Frank asks Will what the daily list is. Will responds that they are suppose to pick up 25 cars. After they pick up the cars and are leaving the yard, Frank notices they have too many cars. He points this out to Will and asks how many cars they are suppose to get and Will says 20 (not the 25 he said earlier) Will says he counted 5 too many cars. Then they talk about the 25 they have that is incorrect it should be 20.
Continuity mistake: When Dewey and Gilleece are attempting to jump aboard the runaway train by driving along side its front cab, the passenger side door is ripped off by crashing into a train signal. In one shot the door is still partially attached to the vehicle and trailing on the ground. But in the next shot the door is gone and nowhere to be seen on the ground behind.
