Wrong Train to Brimstone - S1-E4

Continuity mistake: Heyes and Curry enter the train depot at 8 pm. It's dark outside. When they come back to the platform, it's daylight. When the train leaves, it's dark again. Midway through its 60-mile journey, there's another shot of the train in daylight, followed again by more night shots. (00:07:30)

Wrong Train to Brimstone - S1-E4

Continuity mistake: While Heyes and Curry are guarding the gold shipment, Heyes' hat keeps changing positions on his head between takes. First it's down over his hairline, then it's pushed back, etc. (00:26:50)

Wrong Train to Brimstone - S1-E4

Factual error: When the train is fully boarded, the conductor waves a lamp to signal the engineer. It's supposed to be 8 pm at night, but it's suspiciously sunny on the platform - and the signal lamp is noticeably not lit. (00:08:45)

Wrong Train to Brimstone - S1-E4

Factual error: This entire episode takes place in Wyoming, because of the Bannerman plot to ambush the Devil's Hole gang, but a sign at the train station where Heyes and Curry board states the elevation as 2315 feet. No location in Wyoming or northern Colorado is that low. One would have to be in California, Texas, or eastern Kansas or Nebraska. (00:04:05)

Hannibal Heyes: Look, Wheat, I agree, we gotta bust him out. But it's gonna take finesse.
Kyle Murtry: Wheat didn't bring any of that.

The Biggest Game in the West - S2-E19

Trivia: This was the first episode with Roger Davis replacing Pete Duel as Hannibal Heyes. Duel's tragic suicide apparently meant nothing to insensitive network execs at ABC. They insisted that the production schedule proceed uninterrupted, and that all scenes already in the can with Duel be reshot with Davis. There are three places in the episode, however, in which Duel can still be recognized: in the series intro, pulling a safe from a train (this shot remained for several episodes before being trimmed); walking into the hotel from the stagecoach; and in the scene where Heyes convinces Curry to go talk to the Devil's Hole Gang (shots taken over Heyes' shoulder are of Pete Duel, whose hair was much darker than Davis').
