Near the end of the movie, when the train is backed up to the yard, and Amanda has switched the points, she runs towards the train as it is leaving. The track they pass over passes the locomotive when the camera shows Robert reaching for her, but when the camera shows her running, she has yet to run over the track until the end, when Robert picks her up.
