It's hard to tell if Terence's model is a larger scale or a smaller one when along side the narrow-gauge engines.
Terence is seen with a "working hard" face on in this episode. This is the first and only time he's ever seen with a different facial expression.
When Elizabeth is carrying the prize bull, her eyes look wonky.
For the first shot of the camera "pulling" Duncan, at the bottom of the screen you can see a wire bouncing up and down that was probably attatched to the camera in some way.
When the headmaster first starts playing the organ after Duncan loses his whistle, Duncan is traveling round the mountainside but is that really safe for the headmaster to be sitting on an open truck with such a drop below him?
Rusty: Look! It's Duncan the musical engine!
Duncan: An engine's not an engine without a whistle.
Cameo by Terence.
Appearances by Duncan, Skarloey, Rheneas, Peter Sam, Rusty, Elizabeth and Headmaster Hastings.
A deleted scene of Duncan's whistle landing in the field is seen in the music video entitled "The Whistle Song".
Stop-motion is used when the Headmaster plays the organ.
Peter Sam's first speaking role since Season 4's "Gallant Old Engine".
First appearance of the Headmaster.
Final episode written by Ross Hastings.
From this point on, we see the passenger trains without the break vans.
This may be the last episode narrated by Alec Baldwin but it was shown out of production order.
This story is almost similiar to 'Mike's Whistle' from the book 'Small Railway Engines'.
In the annual this story is featured in, the Headmaster's surname is Hastings. This is playing on the surname of Ross Hastings, the writer of this episode.
When Duncan was traveling along the mountainside, the tune the headmaster was playing was "She'll Be Coming Round The Mountain".
