The brake sound effect from the first two seasons of Thomas was originally used in Fox films such as "The Sand Pebbles" and "Emperor of the North".
In 1998, reruns of the second and third seasons of Shining Time Station used to air on Fox Family Channel [previously called ABC Family, now called Freeform] as well as Storytime with Thomas and Mister Moose's Fun Time which had Thomas stories as a regular feature.
