- For an unknown reason, most of this episode was shot with the large scale models of Thomas and James.
- The German title of this episode is "Always Track After a Meal" or "Always Trace the Flour". In Norway, it is called "The Flour that Disappeared", and in Japan, it is called "The Flour".
- This episode marks Sir Handel's first appearance since the fourth season episode Bowled Out.
- The large scale open wagons have the faces of regular scale vans.
- Thomas reversed into a siding, so, seeing he was pushing the flour truck, he should have seen the trail of flour.
- Why did Thomas think James was being bossy even when James asked him kindly to shunt the truck?
- The truck could not have carried enough flour to leave such a long trail.
- Since the flour was in bags, there should have still been flour in the truck.
- Brakevans should have been added to Rusty, Skarloey, Rheneas, Sir Handel, Duncan, Peter Sam, Thomas, and James' trains.
