Trivia Edit

  • The theme park that Brum is at is Drayton Manor in Tamworth, Staffordshire (home of Thomas Land). It was later seen in Brum and the Crazy Chair Chase.
  • The engine on the steam train is a C-16 class 2-8-0 tender engine from the Rio Grande Company Limited, No. 278, and is a Consolidation American type steam locomotive, which was the most common wheel arrangement for steam trains during the 1800's and 1830's on American Railroads and were given the name "American" in 1872, because all of the work they did on American Narrow Gauge Railroad until 1928, as the engine is pulling two passenger cars. These types of engines have ten different wheels, such as two leading wheels, eight large driving wheels, and no trailing wheels.
  • The sound effect for the train's brakes applied is re-used from Thomas & Friends, and Trainz programmes.

Goofs Edit

  • The Mayor tries to pull the lever to stop the train, but then he snaps it off, as if the lever handle sheered itself off. When he hits the lever, the Mayor says "Oops!", before the train starts. And when the narration says the train is out of control, the engine feels as if it might fall apart.
  • In reality, bin bags wouldn't be able to stop a train as it will push them out of the way.
