Trivia

  • This PC Game is known for a couple of things:
    • The first Thomas PC game to be based on a special.
    • One of the few Thomas PC games to have a demo.
    • The only Thomas PC Game to be released exclusively in the UK by a US company.
      • 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 and Germany. It is unknown why it was never released anywhere else.
  • 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 6 December 2000, with Infogrames purchasing them the following day.
  • Amazon's UK website lists the game as being released on 19 October 2000, a month after the game was finalised according to the files on the disc.
  • 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, while Burnett's was 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.
