Plot

Thomas and the Pack have been sent to the football field to clear debris from the car park after a bad storm, but there is no work for Buster and he feels left out.

Trivia

  • A working title for this episode was "Buster 1 Moles 0," although that title is listed on Virgin TV Anytime's website.
  • Stock footage from Toby's Windmill is used.
  • When Buster flattens the molehills, one of the shots is mirrored.
  • One of the miniature moles (Production made) was sold to The Coffey Man Preservation from The Prop Gallery.

Goofs

  • In the opening credits it says: "Based on the Railway Stories" where it should have said: "Based on the Railway Series."
  • The title is misleading as the episode is mainly focused on Buster.
  • In the shots with Kelly, Monty, and Buster, Buster's eyes are wonky.
