[[WMG: Ryan was going to help Sailor John in the original draft of Lost Treasure.]] In the original draft of Sodor's Legend of the Lost Treasure, Ryan was going to have a much more different personality. He was going to be arrogant and cocky as opposed to the the nice engine we saw in the film. Another question we have about the film is "how does Sailor John get the pirate ship atop the hill?" The answer is this; Ryan pulled it there, at least in the script's original draft. Presumably the scenes of Ryan inviting Thomas into the shed were not in the original script. I'm assuming we would have seen Ryan buggering up on the branch line, causing Daisy to want to tear her bonnet out at him, giving her more of a role. Ryan would have messed up a passenger service, resulting in him being sent to run on the Arlesburgh-Harwick project, with Percy taking his work. Ryan would have been eager to prove himself, and as a result takes on some bad coal after volunteering to take dynamite. Thomas saves the day, and gets all the glory for it despite not doing so from the Fat Controller. However, as opposed to being thankful, the more antagonistic Ryan is jealous of Thomas. After the treasure is recovered by Marion, Ryan is sidelined yet again, and he begins to hate Thomas. After seeing that Thomas will not help him get his treasure back, Sailor John approaches Ryan with a job, which he is happy to accept if it will get Thomas in trouble. In the dark of night, Ryan steals the pirate ship and pulls it to the top of Gordon's Hill. However, he begins to feel guilty when he sees that John plans to harm anyone in his way. This results in the scene with him feeling guilty at Arlesburgh Junction; he's not heading to check on Thomas, he's returning home from helping John steal the ship. When Ryan sees the ship sailing down the line, in a panic he reverses. Ryan realizes what he did was wrong, and rushes into action, taking the rope and tipping over the ship. This is what causes Ryan to be rewarded the Arlesburgh-Harwick Branch Line, while Daisy manages the passengers to keep an eye on him. Ryan and Thomas now become friends, and Ryan is no longer as spiteful and jealous as he was before, although still a little cocky. This would have made for a much more complex Ryan, but I understand why they changed it.

[[WMG: The North Western Railway is actually a functioning, well-oiled railway; they just play up in front of the cameras.]] In the Thomas universe, the Reverend Awdry (as "evidenced" in the forewords of the books), Britt Alcroft, David Mitton and others exist alongside the engines. The railway is closed for about a month each year so that each season can be filmed, and recently, even longer thanks to the movies, and the Fat Controller gets paid in return. The crashes are made with non-sentient mock-ups of the "actors", and the engines who feature in each episode all given a debriefing before filming. It takes roughly a day to film each episode.

Ruling out Edward's dream, why would Gordon, James and Percy be used as a playground, a carnival game and a rollercoaster, respectively? Because theur brightly coloured paint would make them appeal to children. The engines are going to be put out of use ''eventually'', and seeing as they are alive, why scrap them?

[[WMG: Sir Handel (and by proxy Peter Sam) met Fearless Freddie at the Aluminum Works.]] A fact that wasn't in the TV Series, but was in the Railway Series, was that Falcon and Stuart were not directly sold to the Skarloey Railway following the closure of the Mid-Sodor. Instead, they were sold to the Aluminum Works up at Peel Godred, where they worked for a few years before then being purchased by the Skarloey Railway. I propose that the Aluminum Works already had another engine...Freddie. Falcon and Stuart befriended him and worked alongside him as they completed the project, and Falcon and Stuart were sold away when the project was completed. Who knows what happened? Freddie was kept on the run the Aluminum Works? He was bought by the Skarloey Railway with Falcon and Stuart and simply waited on the side for repairs? Anyway, that's why Sir Handel knows Freddie and Skarloey and Rheneas don't.
