** From what I understand, they're just ripped apart and that kills them.

** In the books this seems to the case; in "Main Line Engines", Gordon's fireman is mentioned to be new on the job.

* ''Edward's Exploit''. In the televised version, the only damage that Edward sustains is losing his siderods, but in the RWS version, the illustration shows the splashers and running board above Edward's right driving wheels completely churned up, almost macerated by whatever happened to him. It's quite hard to imagine just how much pain the poor engine must have been in.

* By going with the narration of the TV Series and the Railway Series, it would seem that it's not just the face and feelings that both engines and humans have; some parts and functions of an engine seem to mirror that of a human. The firebox, smokebox and boiler appear to represent the heart, head/brain and stomach respectively, blowing a safety valve is like having a heart attack, bad coal is like having constipation as a lot of water is needed, boiler sludge is practically excrement and a washout is somewhat akin to an ''enema''.

* In ''Tale Of The Brave'', when Bill and Ben scare Thomas at the clay pits, he remarks that they nearly made him 'blow a safety valve'. Clearly the writes see this as akin to a heart attack. Recall in Season 1's ''Edward, Gordon and Henry'', Gordon blows his safety valve while pulling the Express. In other words, Gordon overworked himself so much that he gave himself a heart attack.
