  • Some BRIO Thomas items were more accurate compared to their Learning Curve counterparts.
  • There were two versions of Duck available; one with green wheels and one with black wheels.

  • BRIO is the only merchandise line not to give Lady her headlamps.
  • The BRIO battery powered Thomas model has a front magnet, unlike his Learning Curve counterpart.

  • Rheneas was the only of the original seven Narrow Gauge Engines not to be manufactured.

  • Splatter and Dodge have light grey wheels instead of black wheels.
  • The windmill looks a lot like Toby's windmill, despite the fact it was released years before the episode premiered.
  • Toby's face on his BRIO model appears to have been modelled after Mavis', despite the fact that Mavis never had her own BRIO model.
  • The BRIO models of Henry, Gordon, and Duke have a hook that connects them to their tenders, but James and Edward use a magnet.
  • The tender engines (excluding Duke) were the only models to not gain a front coupling.
  • Rusty was seen in Parks and Recreation episode, "Donna & Joe".
