- The episode kept close with the original Railway Series story.
- The plane in the background at Dryaw was a nice touch.
- 'After that the road left the railway.' The road is right next to Thomas.
- What was Thomas doing at Toby's station?
I have no problems against this episode, but just a little nitpick, when Ringo Starr mentioned, 'After that the road left the railway'. You can see a bit of road right next to him and what was Thomas doing at Toby's station anyway? Early years in the show or not too much room? OK. But this episode stuck close to the original story from the Railway Series and the little bi-plane at Dryaw was a great touch too as it shows more activity around the village. This episode is great, its worth watching again and again no matter what.
