- Due to its limited release after the movie was shown in cinemas, this game is considerably hard to find out of all the CD-ROM games released in the UK.
- This was due to Hasbro Interactive's closure on December 6th of 2000, with Infogrames purchasing them the following day.
- amazon.co.uk lists the game as being released on October 19th, 2000, a month after the game was finalised according to the files on the disc.
- This is the first Thomas & Friends PC game based on a special.
- Despite the movie involving American and Canadian actors and being based on the American spin-off series, Shining Time Station, this game was released exclusively in the UK. It is unknown why it was never released anywhere else.
- In the game's files, Billy Twofeathers and Burnett Stone's sprites are named "Indian" and "Peter" respectively. Billy's sprite is probably named "Indian" due to his character's nationality. Burnett's sprites were most likely named Peter as he was portrayed by Peter Fonda in the film.
- Thomas, James and Percy have their Series 1 themes, Lady has Annie and Clarabel's theme, Diesel 10 has Trevor's theme, Splatter has Sir Topham Hatt's theme, and Dodge uses a recreated version of Toby's theme.
- Edward, Mavis, Terence, Caroline and Bulstrode are included in the game despite not appearing in the film itself.
