In the birth order of the Bradley girls Billie Jo was older than Bobbie Jo. However, Meredith MacRae, who took over the role of Billie Jo from Gunilla Hutton in season four, was actually three years younger than Lori Saunders who replaced Pat Woodell in season three as middle sister Bobbie Jo. In fact, Saunders was three years older than Hutton as well. Also, Linda Henning who played youngest daughter Betty Jo was the same age as Woodell, MacRea and Hutton.

Even though the Cannonball is supposed to be a wood burning locomotive, and the tender car is loaded with chopped wood, the smokestack is blowing pitch black smoke. It should be blowing mostly white or light gray smoke from the wood. The black smoke reveals the real-life locomotive actually burned oil.
