Added DiffLines:

* SlowerThanASnail: Porky's old clunker of a locomotive slows to a crawl while attempting to climb up a mountain, to the point a snail is seen outpacing them.

Added DiffLines:

* {{Bowdlerization}}: Nickelodeon airings (the original black and white, the redrawn colorized version, and the computer-colorized versions) cut the scene where the Silver Fish races by a woodpile and a little black man is revealed, referring to a racially offensive saying (see "VisualPun" below for what it means).
**In the redrawn version that aired on Nickelodeon, the scene with the Silver Fish going through a tunnel and turning it inside out and the end where Porky is named the new engineer of the Silver Fish were cut, though this was less a censorship cut and more a time cut (or, since Nickelodeon aired poorly-made redrawns, a cut because the overseas animators working on the redrawns either skipped over scenes because they were too complex to do or they were so sloppily done that they had to be cut).

* FakeOutOpening: The opening has a majestic looking locomotive (described in caption as "The 30th Century Limited the Railroad's Crack Train") chugging fast to the tune of [[StandardSnippet "California, Here I Come"]], making it seem like this is going to be Porky's train...only for it to dissolve to Porky and his dinky, barely functional steam engine. The captions rub it in by saying its [[CaptionHumor "The 15th Century Unlimited - also a crack train. Everything cracked - including the engineer.]]

* TheAllegedCar: Porky owns an incredibly old fashioned (even for the late 1930's) steam engine named 'Toots' that is so incredibly slow that a ''snail'' is shown outrunning it. Its boiler is powered by a measly ''candlestick''.

* JustTrainWrong: Lets start with the fact that Porky is using a lone candlestick to power his steam engine and go from there...

* WhatAPieceOfJunk: "Toots", Porky's old train, is basically a piece of scrap iron that should've been retired ages ago. The Silver Fish engineer outright mocks it as this. Porky responds in turn that he could beat him with his old train anyway.
