Haunted Henry is the eleventh episode of the fifth season.
One evening, Henry is working late with Edward, and an owl hoots. Edward warns Henry that when the owl hoots, a mist will roll in soon, along with a ghost. Henry scoffs at the story and sets off with his goods train, but later to his surprise, a mist does roll in. He has to slow at an amber signal, and after seeing a closed crossing gate, a red signal, a coat discarded on a tree branch, and a light flickering at a station, Henry's crew decide to turn back. The next day, they discover that a nearby viaduct was unsafe and would have collapsed if they had tried to cross. Later, Henry's driver informs him that the viaduct has been repaired, and they can try to cross again that night.
While preparing to leave with his train, Henry gets spooked after hearing an owl hoot and Gordon speed by. The trucks tease him, but later down the old line, they see the crossing gates close and signal turn red by themselves, and they become spooked too. They surge forward through the gates and hit a landslide, plunging into a ravine. Soon, Old Bailey the fogman arrives on a handcart and reprimands Henry and his crew for not heeding his warnings. Henry's driver apologises, and to make up for it, Sir Topham Hatt reopens the station and Old Bailey is made the stationmaster.

- In the head-on shot of Henry with James puffing by, Henry's eyes are wonky.
- Two of Henry's trucks switch places in his train when he pushes it back into the fog.
- When the trucks fall into the ravine, you can see track on the side of the ravine leading downward.
- After the trucks fall into the ravine, either Henry's driver or fireman can be seen leaning out of the cab, but in the next shot, they are both standing beside the track.
- When the narrator says; "A mysterious figure watched Henry go by," the two open trucks and two of the vent vans disappear.
- When Henry shouts "Stop! Stop!", he passes the signal and tree that are near the gates, but when the trucks crash though the gates, Henry passes that signal and tree again.
- Henry's trucks' faces continually change direction from when he leaves Wellsworth until they crash.
- When the trucks land at the bottom of the ravine, one truck's face almost falls off.
- Henry: Owls. Mists. Ghosts. Edward's going soft on the boiler.
