Bonus FeaturesEditEdit


  • Thomas Gets Tricked and Edward Helps Out use the UK narration.
  • At the end of Diesel's Devious Deed, "gold dust" sound effects from Mr. Conductor's whistle can be heard.
  • In James Gets a New Coat, the freight cars' laugh is muted out.
  • The back cover says that one of the bonus features is a DVD ROM feature with coloring pages and a desktop wallpaper. But this feature only works for people running Windows XP.
  • This is the second US DVD to feature UK episodes.
  • Some of the clips used in the Thomas' Trivia Game are from UK narrations of episodes.
  • The season eleven episodes use the eighth-tenth season intro and end credits.
  • This particular release would later influence the artwork for complete series DVDs in the UK.


  • The Thomas Trivia Game describes Thomas meeting Duncan for the first time in Duncan and the Old Mine, when in fact he met him before in the fourth season. It also says that Thomas first met James in Thomas' Train, but he did not meet him until Thomas and the Breakdown Train.
  • Diesel 10 is on the cover of Disc 1 but he is not in any of the episodes.
