Trivia

  • The Earl's Quiz segment on the US DVD was reused from Trouble on the Tracks, while the Mr. Perkins segments on the UK DVD are from The Thomas Way.
  • Like the later DVD Thomas' Christmas Carol, the Series 13-18 intro, Engine Roll Call and credits made by Nitrogen Studios are used on the US release despite the episodes being from the nineteenth series.
  • This release is the only way Australian viewers are able to see Henry Spots Trouble, as ABC no longer airs the episode on TV for conveying an inadvertent anti-vaccination message, even though this was not the episode's intention, but it was still banned from airing in that country anyway.

Goofs

  • Steve D'Angelo and Terry Tompkins are credited for rearranging the theme song, but the Series 19 version of the theme song is not featured on the DVD.
  • Flying Scotsman appears on the Croatia DVD front cover, but he does not appear in any episodes.
  • The closed captioning is incorrect in certain scenes:
