Trivia

  • The book released to promote Track Stars included a prototype cover, which Percy was not on, and a different description hinting the focus would be on the entire Steam Team, rather than just Thomas, Percy, Emily, and James.
  • A complimentary copy of Tales from the Tracks, with a different cover and no bonus features, was given to anyone who attended the Thomas and Friends 60th anniversary party in Hatfield House, Hertfordshire, United Kingdom in 2005.
  • On the Norwegian DVD, James Gets a New Coat is renamed "James Gets Painted".
  • Track Stars was the last independent US home video release from HiT Entertainment; so all future releases would be distributed by other companies (starting with 20th Century Fox on Tales from the Tracks).
  • A second Spanish version of this DVD was released by 20th Century Fox, but the DVD only included Spanish audio track and it had no menus.
  • In the 2014 re-release in the fun and games section, the DVD-ROM Depot and HiT Extras are removed.
  • In the Character Gallery, a snapshot of Percy at Tidmouth Sheds from Thomas and the Magic Railroad is used.
  • Unlike other DVD's that have episodes from other shows featured in the HiT Extras this is the only DVD where the HiT Extra is basically a Sing Along bonus feature from another DVD.

Goofs

  • In the fun and games menu, Percy's wheels are not moving and his buffer housings are black instead of red.
  • In the game "James' Colors of Sodor" game, here are a few things that happen.
    • In Level 1, James states that Wilbert is purple, This is not true as Wilbert is actually blue and never appeared in the television series.
    • In Level 2, James mispronounces Farmer McColl as "Farmer McCool".
    • In Level 3, Gordon and Emily are missing their tenders. 
  • In the game "Thomas' A-maze-ing Adventures", the narrator says that Thomas fire up his boilers, but Thomas has only one boiler.
  • The 2009 Lionsgate release doesn't list the episodes on the back cover and the disc is the same as the 2005/2006 release.
  • Michael Angelis is credited in the opening of the Norwegian DVD.
  • In the Lionsgate and Universal Home Entertainment re-release's after going to the DVD menu on HiT Entertainment Auto Play, it takes you to the Fun and Games menu for unknown reasons.
  • In the Universal Home Entertainment re-release, the program plays when you select Menu in the Character Gallery.
