When Rheneas crashed into the sidings, in the US version you can hear a crash sound, but in the UK version, there's no crash sound.
This is the last time the smaller models of the Narrow Gauge engines are used. It is also the final time where one of them meets up with one of the standard, larger British Rail gauge engines until "Calling All Engines!"
Rheneas has his first accident in this episode.
First time we see an explosion on the Island of Sodor.
Edward refers to Thumper as "it". This is the second time in the show's history in which a character is referred to in that way.
The boulder's "face" resembles that of Gordon in a way.
It is plausible that the "face" we see on the Boulder at two points in the episode is meant to simulate Rusty's thoughts of the boulder "watching" him.
How did Boulder even stay atop the viaduct the whole way across? Something thundering along like that would make the chances very low. (But then again, Boulder does seem to have a mind of its own...)
Once the Boulder has fallen off the cliff, all of its moss has magically disappeared! Instant cleaning?
When Boulder hits the shed, it catches fire for some unknown reason. Just what was being stored in there?
When Rheneas first runs from the boulder, you can obviously see he would have been hit!
Skarloey has his scared face on even before he has realised the Boulder is coming!
When the Boulder falls of the cliff, it hits an outcrop and would obviously not have landed on the track, but in the next scene it falls vertically onto the track.
At one point where Rusty is fleeing from the Boulder there is a brief shot where his eyes are completely awry, most amusing too.
In the close-ups of a frightened Rheneas running for his life, you can see the hook which is attached to the camera he is pulling along.
In the song "Come For the Ride" there is a shot in it of the boulder chasing Rheneas. If you pay close attention you will see a shot of Rheneas turning left that was cut out.
Engines can't "swerve" into sidings just like that. The points wouldn't have just been switched at the last second for the relevant characters and to add to that, Boulder was never seen running past any signal boxes (or workmen) to justify all the points to them sidings being switched.
Wouldn't the Boulder's weight destroy the viaduct?
How did they move Boulder onto the hill at the end of the episode?
Driver: We'd best leave till the weather's better. The rain loosened some of this rock.
Rusty: I think it's Boulder, wanting us to go away.
Rusty: It's (the boulder) rolling along our line!
Rusty: It's that boulder. I think it's watching me.
Percy: How can it be? Boulders don't have eyes!
Rusty: Well, Percy, there's something strange about this one.
Rheneas' driver: (after narrowly avoiding the boulder) Rather a smash than a squash.
A scene that shows Rheneas turning left while being chase by the boulder was cut. However, this scene is shown in the music video "Come for the Ride".
Appearances by Rusty, Thomas, Edward, Percy, Skarloey, Rheneas, Thumper, and the Fat Controller.
A larger scale model of Rheneas is used for the first time in this episode.
The mine in this episode is the same one from "Toby's Discovery" (Hint: look at the rock formation by the sheds).
This is the last season without a Christmas episode.
This is the last episode that features polished models of the engines.
First and last appearance of Boulder.
Cameos by Terence, George and Butch.
This is Britt Allcroft and David Mitton's last episode as producers. It is also the last time that Britt Allcroft is a writer for the series.
First (and only) appearance of Thumper.
Many of the scenes of the Boulder chasing the engines look similar to those seen in the "Indiana Jones" movie.
