The Great Train Robbery

Factual error: A number of press photographers are present during the trial of the Great Train Robbers and they take a series of photographs of the opening proceedings. No photographer has ever been allowed in a British courtroom for any reason at any time, ever.


Audio problem: When the train pulls away after being decoupled it really sounds like a steam train, not a diesel electric. (00:59:30)


Factual error: In the scenes filmed outside the picture house (filmed outside The Hyde Park Picture House in Leeds), galvanised lampposts and high pressure sodium street lanterns which were only installed since 2007. Also, a West Yorkshire branded red and cream Metro bus shelter and bus stop flag can be seen in some of the scenes.
