Anachronisms 

There is a scene with a steam train leaving a station during World War 2 with the blue double-oval "First" sign (for First Class) on the window and the red triangle "No Smoking" sign also on a window. Both these signs were not introduced until the railways were nationalized in 1948 and became British Railways.
