Other mistake: Just before Jack and Pee-Wee start singing in the rail car, their train passes by some empty farmland. Pay particular attention to the buildings on the horizon, though. After a few songs, Pee-Wee can't take it anymore and decides to cover his ears and bail out - but where he lands is the very same location described before the singing began (note the exact same buildings and distance to them, which hasn't changed at all), as if the train didn't cover any ground.
