After the tower collapses and the engines are shown all covered in brick dust, Toby's face is rather crooked.
Goof: When Thomas topples off the track, if you pause, you can see a triangle block on the far piece of track, making him topple over.
Goof: After Stanley pulls Thomas onto the tracks, look behind Thomas. You'll see a switch that leads to where Thomas landed. This proves that a hidden track was used to help Thomas onto the line.
Goof: When Stanley is pulling Thomas back onto the tracks, Thomas is dirty from the crash. But when Thomas is back onto the rails, he is suddenly clean.
Goof: Thomas floats down in the mine and even spins around in circles, when he should sink in real life.
Goof: Stanley is only pulling six loaded trucks up the hill before the coupling snaps. In previous seasons however, engines can manage around fifteen trucks with no trouble.
RESPONSE: It depends on what's inside the trucks that makes it heavy, and the strength of the coupling
Goof: When Thomas and James arrive at the Wharf, the narrow-gauge engines, particularly Skarloey, Peter Sam and Freddie, appear at many different places around the Wharf with little explanation.

Edward: Sir, Thomas has dissapeared!
Emily: No one knows where he is!
Percy: And I miss him!
Thomas: Fizzling fireboxes! This tunnel is flooded!

This special features five songs:

5. Thomas, You're the Leader
This is the second time the song "Engine Roll Call" was altered, the first time being in the previous special, "Calling All Engines". The song was altered to fit in for Stanley. Instead of:
"Henry toots and huffs and puffs.

it is now:
"Henry toots and Edward puffs.
Stanley he's the new one there."
