Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • In the beginning of the movie, Hero Boy looks at a picture of himself on a store Santa's lap. The store's name on the photo is Herpolsheimer's, an old department store in Grand Rapids, Chris Van Allsburg's hometown. Later the train passes by the store.
  • Movie Goof (incorrectly regarded as a mistake): The controls, brakes, and other machinery on the train are set up in ways that don't make sense, but that's because it's pure fantasy.
  • The first feature-length film to be released in both 35 mm and IMAX 3D.
  • The locomotive in the movie is based on the Pere Marquette 1225, a restored steam locomotive located in Owosso, MI. In fact, many of the sound effects of the film's train are recordings of the actual train. The train is often run between Owosso and nearby Chesaning for rides during festivals.
