Continuity 

The locomotive pulling the train that crashes off of the bridge knocked down by the title creature changes from a switch engine to a streamlined unit, then back to the switch engine but pulling in reverse and then back to a head-on view of the streamliner just before the crash.

Chase is seen taking white wall tires off of a wrecked car and putting them on his own. In the next scene he has black wall tires on his car. The white wall tires change back and forth several times from scene to scene after that.

Crew or equipment visible 

Just before the train crash, there's a shot of Shug Fisher, playing Old Man Harris, in his car, reacting to the sight of the Giant Gila Monster. Reflected in the windshield is director Ray Kellogg giving Fisher the cue to turn his head.

Revealing mistakes 

As the freight train crashes, you can plainly see the string pulling the engine off of the tracks. Once it goes off, the rest of the train follows.
