The Lone Ranger

Factual error: When the lone ranger fires his guns at the train he shoots over 20 times, despite using a 6 shooter. Likewise when Fuller is shooting at Tonto through the roof.

Factual error: About 3/4 of the way through, a scene shows two trains facing each other, and a band plays "Stars and Stripes Forever" a famous march composed by John Phillip Sousa. However, this march was not composed until 1896, 27 years after the scene supposedly takes place (1869).

Factual error: Tonto explains to a boy how he showed two men the location of rich silver deposits in exchange for a cheap watch from Sears Roebuck. The scene is to have taken place when Tonto was child, which would be several years prior to 1869, when Tonto was an adult. However, Sears Robuck was not founded until 1886, many years after the story could have taken place.

Factual error: The model railroad is HO scale, which wasn't created until around 1922.

Factual error: Promontory Point, not "Summit", where the transcontinental railroad was joined, is in Utah. The transcontinental railroad went through Nebraska and Wyoming and was nowhere near Texas.

Mistakes

At the start of the train chase Tonto blows the whistle as he passes the bad guy who says "shoot him you idiot". The soldier opens fire with the machine gun and Tonto is suddenly back in front and passing him again.
