Toby and Terence were the only Season 1 characters not to appear in a final nameboard shot.
Gordon was the only engine that appeared in Season 1 who only got one nameboard shot.

In Japan, every episode of the first seven seasons ended with a nameboard sequence of its featured characters, with their names stated by the narrator.
