Hell on Wheels (2011)

7 mistakes

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.

Hungry Ghosts - S5-E6

Continuity mistake: At the end of the previous episode, when Mei's father Ah-Tao dies she touches his face (after Buchanan joins the room) and she is wearing dark red fingernail polish with jewels. At the beginning of this episode showing the same scene, Mei no longer has polish on her nails.

Struck - S5-E4

Continuity mistake: A parcel is thrown from the stagecoach and lands just off the left foot of the person expecting it. The following quick shot shows the same man bending to pick it up, but this time the package is centered and directly in front of his feet.

Blood Moon Rising - S2-E10

Factual error: In the shot where Bohannon and Swede are walking down the tracks, to the far left below the gatling gun there is a man presumably dead, wearing a modern orange hardhat.

61 Degrees - S5-E10

Continuity mistake: After Durant is smacked in the mouth by the rancher, the blood on his face and shirt changes position, shape, and even disappears and reappears.

Show generally

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.

Show generally

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.
