Corrected entry: Why would Doc label the toy car "time machine" when they both knew what it was? Having the car marked like that would only make sense for Clara to see it when she arrives at the livery so she would assume that Doc was telling the truth when he told her he was from the future. Since Marty and Doc wanted to minimize their true identities and their association with the future, they should have covered the train set up, just in case they failed in their attempt and/or had to come back.

Corrected entry: In the letter the Doc sends to Marty in 1955 telling him where to find the time machine and telling him not to come back to 1885 to rescue him, he says he has met a wonderful woman and is thinking of settling down with her. When Marty goes back to 1885 the day after the letter was sent, the Doc has not met Clara yet and does not appear to have any other female attachments.

Corrected entry: At the onset of the film, Doc and Marty discover Doc's grave from 1885 with the dedication by Clara Clayton on it. Now remember, this was before Marty had gone back to 1885 to meet Doc and further influence the happenings in that year, which included their chance meeting with Clara when she almost died. Even without Marty's influence in 1885, history of the film series up to that point said Clara went over the cliff and died. So therefore, it is inconceiveable that Clara could have lived to even meet Doc to put the dedication on his grave, as he died a few days after she would have.
