** One of the earliest stories was "Edward and Gordon" where the latter gets stuck pulling heavy trucks on a steep hill and the former helps him up. Ever since then, the hill has been known by most characters as "Gordon's Hill". Other engines would later have trouble on the same hill but since Gordon was the first, it's officially named after him.

*** Big Mickey can often be seen in Brendam Docks, even in the CGI era. [[soiler:He became a fully fledged character in Season 21 though]].

* ContinuitySnarl: In the books and television series, the island of Sodor is off the coast of England. ''Series/ShiningTimeStation'' put it in another dimension. ''Thomas and the Magic Railroad'' placed Sodor in another, ''magical'' dimension, kept afloat by [[spoiler: Lady and her gold dust,]] even though there was nothing mystical about the series until (or after) that point. As a result of this change, previous mainstays of the series were removed, particularly the drivers and the rest of Sodor's human cast, as well most of the engines (Only 6 appeared in the film). Not only that, but plot points that had been resolved in the previous seasons were all forgotten about (With the biggest one being Henry needing Special Coal, for entirely different reasons in the movie). This has pushed ''Magic Railroad'' toward both FanonDiscontinuity and CanonDiscontinuity as a result, with only one character introduced in the movie (Diesel 10), actually making consistent appearances in the actual show.

** Season 21's "The Fastest Red Engine on Sodor" has James find out about Rosie's new red livery for the first time, and also has him crash into Tidmouth Sheds. And because of the damage he caused, in the following episode, "A Shed for Edward", Edward has to stay in other sheds, until he chooses to move to a shed at Wellsworth permanently. However, ''Journey Beyond Sodor'' has James meet Rosie in her new livery again, yet Edward is once again staying at Tidmouth Sheds without explanation.
