* RedHerring: There's a whole song about the hot chocolate and the single rule about it -- "Never-ever let it cool". during the song a girl sets aside a second up of hot chocolate and puts it under her seat to take to another child. There is no "chocolate-cooling" rule breaking involved, though.

*** The Hobo makes a reference to Charles Dickens novel ''Literature/AChristmasCarol'' by playing with a toy puppet of Ebeneezer Scrooge. He uses the puppet to scare the protagonist, and calls the kid a Scrooge, a doubter, and an unbeliever. This scene crosses into NightmareFuel territory even after its revealed the hobo was just being a JerkAss to scare the main character.
*** At one point the Hobo declares himself "the [[Film/EmperorOfTheNorth King of the North Pole]]".
*** That troublesome ticket flaps around in the breeze like the feather from ''ForrestGump''.

Added DiffLines:

* LargeHam: Both the Conductor and the Hobo really know how to ham it up whenever they're onscreen (since they're both played by Creator/TomHanks, this shouldn't be a surprise).

* CanonForeigner: The Hero Boy, the Conductor, Sarah, and Santa Claus are the only characters that appear in both the book and film. The rest of the cast (the Hero Girl, Billy, the Know-It-All Kid, the Hobo, and the engineers) were created specifically for the movie.

* OrWasItADream: During the train ride, the Hero Boy asks the hobo "Are you saying that this all just... a dream?" He replies "You said it, kid! Not me." Later, there's the bell to indicate the experience was real.
** Billy asks "Is it really possible this could all be just a dream?" and the Hero Boy replies quite fervently, "no."
