- The video is the first HiT distributed release to feature The Rev. W. Awdry's Letter from Thomas the Tank Engine, which is shown as a page directly from the original book before wiping away with a "Storybook" transition to black before the opening credits. It could be considered a prototype for the "Rev. W. Awdry's Letter" opening portion used from Seasons 8 thru 12.
- The front cover uses a picture from James and the Queen of Sodor, whilst the back cover uses a picture from Hooray for Thomas.
- The intro for the tape is taken from the 1992 version of Trust Thomas and Other Stories.
- Thomas and Bertie's Great Race does not have a title card.
