Hell on Wheels (2011)

Bleeding Kansas - S4-E11

Continuity mistake: Ruth is seen in a flashback. The young Ruth has a mole on the left side of her face, as does the adult Ruth. But in one shot, when she is slapped by her father, the mole appears on the right side.

Continuity mistake: The lead actor is standing on the back of a railway car as another train slowly pulls out. The following aerial shot still shows him there, but with no train or tracks to his right.

Factual error: The steam locomotives seen are dull faded gray. The railroads of the 1800's had great respect for the trains that brought their business. As such, their locomotives (even those in freight or yard duties) were painted in vibrant colors, with their bells, whistles, and other brass components highly polished. The replica engines at the Golden Spike National Historic Site, as well as various other preserved 1860's and 1870's vintage locomotives all give you a good idea of how steam engines appeared during the show's time. It wasn't until around the turn of the century that corporate greed had taken its toll on the trains' appearances.

Trivia: The character of Eva (played by Robin Mcleavy) has a tattoo on her chin that is based on Olive Oatman, a real-life person who was captured by American Indians as a little girl during the 1800's until regaining her freedom from the Indians in her early adulthood.
