* TrailersAlwaysLie: The trailers made it seem like some romantic dramedy through time and space movie like ''The Lake House''...

* CastingGag:
** Colter's dad should know what he's going through in the film; [[Series/QuantumLeap he's done it too.]]
** Russell Peters basically plays a fictionalized version of himself, particularly noticeable during [[spoiler: his lewd stand-up routine in the ending.]]

** Trains do not have guns on board, as quoted by Metra's own commuter newsletter '''On the Bi Level''', ''If conductors wanted to wield guns they would have applied for a different kind of blue uniform.''. Same thing with tasers and handcuffs.
** The so called 'conductor's compartment' is actually an engineer cab for remotely controlling the locomotive when the train is moving in that direction, and is portrayed on the wrong end of the train car (the engineer must be able to see the track ahead). Even more so from the outside view of the cars since it shows the windshields for the cab on the right end of the car, but the side windows of the cab on the wrong end as well. Not to mention this was a Chicago bound train, so the compartment would not have been empty, there would have been an engineer on one side of the compartment, operating the train.
** Not all cars on the train have headlights/taillights/red stripes.
** Gallery cars of the type depicted do not have a bridge over the isle, they have stairs on either side of the isle to reach their respective sides of the mezzanine. This is caused by the movie being shot in Montreal, and using that city's commuter system for interior filming.
** While Skokie is a town just northwest of Chicago, there is no Metra station there. Furthermore, there is no town of Glenbrooke near Chicago, much less a Metra stop there.

Added DiffLines:

* ExpendableAlternateUniverse: Inverted. [[spoiler: In the end, there's a reality where they found the bomber after he blew up the train, the Source Code project is deemed a success, Colter gets KilledOffForReal and Goodwin will probably have to face military court. Colter simply uses his new Sean body to go drink a coffee with Christina.]] Played staight with all the alternate realities where Colter failed to prevent the bombing.
