- Stock footage from Thomas and the Special Letter, James Gets a New Coat, The Trouble with Mud and Woolly Bear was used.
- Instrumental tracks of Engine Roll Call, Surprises, Emily, A World Around You and Ode to Gordon are used.
- Michael Angelis did the narration in this game.
- In the end credits, a different version of Engine Roll Call is heard; "James is vain but never bad; Thomas, he's the cheeky lad."
- Some of the scenes from the actual television series are mirrored.
- In one minigame, when Thomas approaches a set of points, his front wheels derail briefly before they go back on the rails. This is because Thomas acts like a sprite throughout the minigame, and the camera angle in front of him changes each time he changes track sections.
- In the racing minigame, Toby has another face on his rear end.
- In the Engine Painting minigame, when the engines are being painted, the pixels seem to appear and disappear on the engine's paintwork.
