Bonus Features


  • The DVD is slowed down to 23.98fps as opposed to being converted to 29.97/59.94fps for NTSC broadcast. Audio pitch preservation was also apparently applied, causing distortion in the audio.
  • This is the last US DVD release for two things:
    • The last US DVD release to feature Mr. Perkins segments until Christmas on Sodor.
    • The last US DVD release to date to feature the voice of Martin Sherman as Thomas and Percy in episodes.


  • Don Spencer is credited as director for Duck and the Slip Coaches, but David Stoten directed that episode; the reverse also happens with Missing Gator. Also, Brian Lynch is not credited for producing Missing Gator for Arc Productions.
  • The Mr. Perkins and The Earl's Quiz segments are from the UK dub.
  • The first Calling All Engines! segment features Sir Topham Hatt with his old US voice; all of the further segments feature his current voice.
  • Steve D'Angelo and Terry Tompkins are credited for rearranging the theme song, but the new version of the theme song is not featured on the US DVD (the Season 13-18 intro is used).
