A Shuttle America Embrar ERJ-170 on behalf of United, registration N647RW performing flight S5-3503/UA-3503 from Calgary,AB (Canada) to Denver,CO (USA) with 74 people on board, was in the initial climb out of Calgary when the crew attempted to select the gear lever up but could not move the lever. After retrying the gear lever moved into the up position, the left and nose gear retracted, the right main gear showed an abnormal indication and the gear disagree warning activated together with master warning. A short time later a right hand brakes fault warning message activated, too. The crew worked the relevant checklists and decided to return to Calgary. Upon selecting the gear down the right hand gear did not indicate down and locked, the crew performed a low approach for a visual inspection of the gear from the ground, ground subsequently reported the right main gear appeared in the correct position.
