"Human Desire", the Movie

On one of the movie channels, MOVIES, in my area, Human Desire was playing this evening.  I happened to come in for the last half hour or so.  I've seen it before and don't think I caught this little discrepancy.  In the last scene Glen Ford is at the controls of an Alco FA locomotive.  He seems to be pulling out of a western station.  Could be somewhere in California.  

Broderick Crawford has just strangled Gloria Graham.  The next shot is of Glen Ford at the controls.  Out of his window, a bridge appears with the large letters, "Trenton Makes The World Takes".  Then we have a view out of the front window.  No overhead wires and fairly open landscape.  A track crew moves off the track as Ford sounds his horn.

There are other mishaps earlier in the film such as Ford climbing into an Alco and getting out of a GM diesel.  Although one could say that the locomotives were changed during a run.  

Anyway, I get a kick out of looking for mistakes in films.
