- The Reverend W. Awdry is known for criticising this episode for its lack of reality. The major flaws he found was Henry's driver letting him visit the forest without alerting a signalman (Rule 55), paving the way for a severe crash with an unaware locomotive, and the number of trees so close to the line that could catch fire from a spark from an engine's funnel. Britt Allcroft, the episode's writer, countered the second flaw by claiming to have seen many other railways do the same thing.
- This episode was adapted from Andrew Brenner's 1990 magazine story of the same name.
