Rolling stock





  • Henrietta and the breakdown train's liveries are darker than usual.
  • Most of the engines are missing their lamp irons, and have over sized funnels.
  • Besides the powered ones, Bandai also released the same exact models as unpowered push alongs. All engines except Donald, Douglas, Edward, Bill and Ben are known to exist as unpowered.
  • The Skarloey engines were never released as a powered form, they were always a push along version released in 1995.
