Rusty is furious and refuses to help, until Skarloey reminds him of the passengers. Rusty & the passengers then helps Duncan get back on the line and, that night, Duncan thanks Rusty & the two engines became good friends.

- Going by production order, this is the ninth episode of the fourth season.
- This episode is based on the story of the same name from The Railway Series book, The Little Old Engine.
- The second season episode, A Close Shave is referenced.
- On early UK releases of Rock 'n' Roll and other Stories, 'James was already there waiting for him' is heard later.
- When Skarloey meets Rusty, he is on (viewer perspective) the left side of Rusty. Further down the line, they seem to have switched tracks.
- When Duncan "rocks 'n' rolls" in his first scene, the track is tilted.
- When Duncan comes off the track, he has his happy face mask on.
- The pole used to derail Duncan is clearly visible.
- When Rusty says "Oh! I forgot about them!", his right eye pokes in.
- In the close-up of Duncan's wheels when he is put back on the rails, no people are visible, Duncan's rear wheel remains derailed, and the shadow of the hand putting him down can be seen.
- Rusty's eyes are wonky in the very last shot.
