Shootout at Diablo Station - S2-E11

Plot hole: Well within earshot of the others in the small room, Curry comments to Heyes (purely for the viewers' benefit, since Heyes already knows it) that if Lom Trevors is killed, their amnesty will go with him. This information should have blown their cover, but for some strange (and unbelievable) reason, no one wonders what he's talking about. (00:19:00)

Shootout at Diablo Station - S2-E11

Continuity mistake: Gorman's left hand is in two places at once during the card game. We see it resting on his thigh under the table. One shot later, without time for him to move, both his hands are holding his cards. (00:19:30)

Shootout at Diablo Station - S2-E11

Continuity mistake: The stage driver's hat is white when they leave town, black during the trip, and white again when they arrive at the station. (00:02:00 - 00:05:15)

Shootout at Diablo Station - S2-E11

Continuity mistake: The stagecoach station during the day and what is supposedly the same station after night are shots of two completely different buildings. The night shot is stock footage of a different set. (00:19:10 - 00:35:00)

Shootout at Diablo Station - S2-E11

Continuity mistake: Four horses pull the stagecoach. In long shots, the left lead horse has white fetlocks. A moment later, when the coach pulls into the station, the white-legged horse has moved to the leading right position. (00:05:00)

Shootout at Diablo Station - S2-E11

Continuity mistake: In the interior shot, Hayfoot walks out the door with the flag under his right arm. He then immediately emerges in the exterior shot with the flag under his left arm. (00:37:30)

Shootout at Diablo Station - S2-E11

Continuity mistake: In interior shots, the station's multi-paned window has dust and grime on all the panes. In exterior shots, as Curry talks to Lom from inside, it's apparent that there's no glass in the window at all. (00:41:00)

Shootout at Diablo Station - S2-E11

Plot hole: Curry slips out of his bonds and hides in the secret cubby hole beside the fireplace, right under the four dozing outlaws' noses. But when he's found, the wooden door over the hiding place has to be pried off - very noisily. No one else was free to nail that door shut, and there's no way he could have done it from inside - at least, not without waking up the outlaws. (00:30:30 - 00:34:50)
