Bonus Features


  • A cassette tape was included with some VHS releases for a limited time. It featured the following songs:
  1. Thomas' Anthem
  2. Night Train
  3. It's Great to be an Engine
  4. Harold the Helicopter
  • The soundtrack echos on one version of the American release from Strand Home Video, the Anchor Bay Entertainment release and the DVD. Thomas, Percy and the Mail Train and the nameboard sequence before it was fixed on the DVD, while the other episodes' audio remained unfixed. The overlapping audio did restore music pieces not present in the US version of some episodes, including Trevor's theme at the beginning of "Edward, Trevor and the Really Useful Party" and a cut portion of a music bit of Gordon at the station in "Gordon and the Famous Visitor."
  • The front covers of the 1992, 1994 and 1995 releases feature an image from The Runaway.
  • The Canadian release has a HGV Home Video sticker over the Strand Home Video distribution text, address, etc.


  • Some 1992 releases are missing the Strand Home Video logo and warning screen, and go straight to the Britt Allcroft logo.
  • On the 2006 DVD release during the Season 3 intro, it plays a bit of the closing theme audio for a few as the audio was taken from Thomas Comes to Breakfast, before reverting back to the opening theme audio. This was due to a mistake.
