Trivia

  • This is the first US VHS to feature a few things:
    • The first VHS to have the on-screen Video Treasures logo, though it is the fourth (and last) distributed by them, as they would change their name to Anchor Bay Entertainment in May 1995.
    • The first VHS in which the story featured in the release's title is not the first story played.
    • The first VHS not to have the end credits roll over the final shot of the last episode. Instead, the credits roll over a shot of Thomas posed facing the camera.
    • The first VHS to have Duke, Peter Sam, Sir Handel, Rheneas, Skarloey, Rusty and Stepney's nameboard sequence.
  • This was also the last Thomas & Friends DVD to be released by Anchor Bay Entertainment.
  • On the front cover of the VHS, an image from the fourth series episode, Home at Last is used.
  • On the back cover of the 2008 DVD release, images from the seventh series episode, Trusty Rusty are used.

Goofs

  • The original VHS version of this release has stereo audio, but the DVD version has mono audio instead.
  • On the front cover of the 2008 DVD release, Rusty has no wheels and grass is visible behind his driver, yet Rusty appears to be part way in a shed. Steam is also seen coming from Rusty as well as in the main menu.
