** Think back to Donald and Douglas' intro episode ''Brake Van'' for a moment. There was the possibility that one of them was going to be sent back for scrap. Then, when Donald crashes into the signalbox, he finds out this information!

* The Series 3 episode 'Gordon and the Famous visitor' reveals that Gordon believes that engines without domes are 'not respectable'. It's worth noting that Flying Scotsman (Who, in the books, was Gordon's brother) was exhibited at the 1924 Wembley exhibition alongside a much smaller express locomotive with no dome, and this loco was proven to be the more powerful of the two engines, so Gordon's dislike for domeless engines may just be an act of jealousy.

** There's an episode where Thomas's driver tells him that he's doing so well that soon he won't even need a driver anymore! Thomas takes this to heart and goes out on his own the next day... an adventure that is soon over when he crashes through the wall of a house. So basically, don't ever take responsibility for your actions or do things without an adult's help, even if they encouraged you to do it, because you'll cause destruction and possibly death.
** ''The Flying Kipper'' is creepy enough, even without FridgeHorror, but there's a very dark FreezeFrameBonus if you're paying attention: There are three men in the brakevan that Henry smashes into, but only 2 of them are mentioned jumping clear of the wreck.

**8 Unless they manage to [[TurnedAgainstTheirMasters rise up]] [[KillAllHumans against their oppressors]]...and Thomas becomes a {{Steampunk}} Franchise/{{Terminator}}.



** Then there's the whole thing with scrapping. Edward and others occasionally work in the scrapyards and smelter's yards, where the engines are taken apart and melted down. The scrapyard tracks are lined with literally dismembered engines. Think, for a second, how badly most people would be messed up by seeing the human version on a battlefield or crime scene, and how many years of counseling they would need to ''attempt'' to get over that. The engines get no such sympathy.
*** A few of the diesels-- Iron 'Ary and Bert--actually seem to ''enjoy'' working in this sort of "funeral home" so much that they tried to scrap Stepney, [[ForTheEvulz just for fun]].

*** Why are the engines so happy to be deemed "really useful"? If they're not, they'll be slowly hacked to pieces while they're still alive.
** The Logging Locos from the special ''Misty Island Rescue'' were apparently sent away to the titular island because of their bad behavior. Judging by the abandoned state of the island's railway, the fuel shortages, and the dilapidated states of the three when Thomas discovers them, it quickly becomes apparent that they weren't sent there to do work, but to ''die''.

to:

* A major complaint about the Great Race special is Flying Scotsman's personality, wherein he seems like just a more arrogant version of Gordon, and constantly heckles him, whereas in the books, both got along just fine. However, keep in mind that there is no indication at all that Dr. Beeching's Modernization plan or any international equivalent of it happened in the television series. As such, instead of Flying Scotsman being a [[HopeBringer symbol that steam would endure]], he's just going off on the basic accomplishments of his career. No wonder his and Gordon's relationship is so different in the TV Series.
