TUGS were Planned for this movie
It's been a rumor that David Mitton wanted to use TUGS characters in Thomas and the Magic Railroad, and here's confirmation from Dave Axford that it was indeed planned. This is definitely worthy of mention on the page. TWRAddictYT (talk) 16:00, March 24, 2018 (UTC)
Good small bit of trivia: This is the only Thomas & Friends production (aside from Youtube videos) that does not have a region-specific cast for English-speaking countries, ie there is not a UK or US version.
