In the shot of Percy coming into the station towards the end, Oliver is parked in a siding. When Tom is explaining about his new van, we then see Oliver pulling a train by!
Percy: Thank you, Tom.
Thomas: Yes, indeed. You're a really useful postman.
Tom: Ahh, but where would I be without my van? We make a grand pair!
Percy: What happened to Tom?
Driver: And his old van. No wonder the new Postman looks cross. Trying to carry mailbags on a bicycle would make anyone miserable.
The Fat Controller is mentioned, although not seen.
Appearances by Percy, Thomas and Tom Tipper.
A deleted scene of Percy chuffing through the countryside before he enters Callan Station can be seen on the music video, "Every Cloud Has a Silver Lining".
Last appearance of Bulgy until season 7.
This is the first season that does not end with, nor even has, a holiday episode.
Cameos by Duck, Oliver with Toad, Bertie, Bulgy (when Bertie rides by Bulgy's Bridge) and also 2 cameos by James.
First appearance of the Sodor Mail Van.
Fist (and only) appearance of Tom Tipper.
This is George Carlin's last episode as the Narrator for the American version of the series.
This is the final episode based on The Railway Series. This is also the 8th and final episode adapted from the works of Christopher Awdry.
In the original book, Tom Tipper was not careless. What happened was some boys were playing on the platform, and one of them was riding the bike down the station ramp and lost control, resulting in the bike landing on the rails.
