Goof: In Percy's dream, when the narrator says "He rattled up the rickity rails, and all the way down.", as Percy passes the camera, he has his happy face on when he's not supposed to.
When Henry pushes Diesel towards the siding, he is clean, but when Diesel falls through the siding, Henry is dirty.
One of Thomas' trucks lurches to the side when he and Percy are shunting.
When the paint lands on Thomas' cab, the cab roof bounces and slips out of place. It returns to its normal position in the next shot.
As the narrator says, "But Harvey was on the other side of the Island," look carefully at Harvey's face. After the line is finished, Harvey's face slides downward.
Thomas: Steamies and diesels need to work together.
Diesel: We don't want to work with stinky steamies!
James: We don't want to work with dirty diesels, either!
Thomas: If the airport doesn't open, it will be bad for all the engines! Both steam engines and diesel engines need passengers and freight to be useful!
Gordon: And I was just getting used to my tent!
The Fat Controller: Bananas are no good for building sheds, Thomas.
Gordon: (Whilst dreaming about being made part of a playground.) The indignity! I wish I was a real engine again!
Steam engines: Why are all the diesels here?
Diesels: Why are all the steamies here?
Yard Manager: Why are all the engines here?
The Fat Controller: Why are you all here?
