TriviaEditEdit

  • This is the only US VHS and DVD to feature Class 40's nameboard sequence.
  • On the front cover, an image from Horrid Lorry is used.
  • On the back cover, an image from Thomas and the Rumours is used.
  • The iTunes and Amazon releases have no intermissions. Instead a segment of the opening credits displaying the title card appears. The digital download also has remastered color of the episodes.

GoofsEditEdit

  • "Lady Hatt's Birthday Party" comes before "A Better View For Gordon," meaning the viewers would not know about Gordon's view at Kirk Ronan.
  • Cranky's crane arm is cut off on the front cover.
  • During the intermission after Lady Hatt's Birthday Party, the Thomas intro music is played against the nameboards, instead of the outro credits music.
