The Sixteenth Cousin - S5-E17

Factual error: Lucas and Mark are traveling on what is said to be the first train to ever reach the town of North Fork. The episode is set in the 1880s and the train shown was part of the M.K. & T. Railroad, which at that time was operating only in Missouri, Kansas, Texas and Oklahoma. The fictional town of North Fork is located in New Mexico Territory.

Other mistake: After Mark falls from a horse and is paralyzed, Doc Burrage recommends that Mark soak his legs in the Mission Springs mineral spring. Lucas, Mark and Lou drive a wagon to the site.
