  • On James' HO model, the wheels and axleboxes are painted grey and his smokebox saddle is painted red when they should all be black.
  • Percy's HO model has an oversized coal bunker and cab steps mounted on the side of the running board when they should be under the cab.
  • Terence's HO model has a removable snowplough.
  • The human figures, originally marketed as HO scale, are larger than HO scale. They have recently been relabelled as Large Scale items.
  • Diesel was the first HO engine to have a CGI-style face. Since then Iron 'Arry, Iron Bert and the fourth Troublesome Truckhave also received CGI faces.
