    • Mr. Conductor is sleeping in a hammock instead of a bed.
    • Diesel 10 plans to destroy all the buffers on the Island to find the magic ones.
  • This book was included on the US DVD release of Calling All Engines! as a read along bonus feature, narrated by Robin Smith.
  • The book's cover is based on a promo picture for the movie.


  • The express coaches in the first illustration do not have any doors.
  • James' smokebox saddle is not coloured black.
  • Toby's funnel is missing.
  • In the last illustration, Gordon's funnel is too tall.
  • Lady is missing a connecting rod, and her connecting rod is incorrectly placed in her crosshead in four illustrations.
  • Diesel 10's wheels are incorrectly illustrated with spokes and counterweights.
