During the filming of the scene where Patty is walking over the railroad tracks on the bridge, Patty Dunning states in an interview that she did, in fact, drop down in between the trestles, and that she was really glad she weighed what she did at the time so that she didn't go all the way through, because the bridge was about 60 feet high.

During the chase scene towards the railway trestle the road appears one minute to have new yellow striping and the next cut having no striping. As the yellow striping don't have the old white ones underneath, the road must have been unmarked and painted during filming.

A Thief in the Night is basically the ur-Left Behind, an evangelical propaganda film from the 1970s that set the stage for most Christian end of the world stories since then. Its influence is actually amazing, given how bad it is.
The film fails on multiple levels, from pacing to acting. First and foremost, after a brief intro sequence involving the rapture, the film spends thirty to forty minutes looking at the protagonist's relationship with her evangelical husband and friends. If you came to this film looking for apocalyptic action, you're going to be bored for the first half.
Furthermore, these characters are just impossible to care about. They only exist to spout either platitudes or straw man arguments.
