** The main characters have significantly more anthropomorphic and outdated anatomy compared to most of the other animals, leading to speculation that their character designs were set in stone prior to involvement of scientific consultants. The Conductor having feathers under his hat may be an attempt to partially remedy this.
* SugarWiki/HeartwarmingMoments: The "Mom's Lullaby" song by Mrs. Pteranodon.

* SugarWiki/HeartwarmingMoments: GeniusBonus: Dennis Deinocheirus, the autistic dinosaur introduced in "Junior Conductors Academy", has huge hands that are bent in front of him. This evokes "raptor hands", which some autistic people actually do. Of course, Dennis isn't a raptor, as there are already velociraptors in the series, but the deinocheirus is known for its prominent hands.

Added DiffLines:

** In "Father's Day", [[spoiler:Mr. Conductor and the kids travel into the future, into the Ice Age, to find the Conductor's father Trevor Troodon, who traveled into the future and wasn't able to return. They all come back to the Age of Dinosaurs, and Trevor is reunited with his wife and son once more]].
** In "Junior Conductors Academy", Buddy is disappointed that Dennis is smarter than him, but still wants to be his friend, since Dennis has a hard time making friends. They do become friends and help each other become Junior Conductors, First Class.

* ToyShip: The most common ones are Shiny/Gilbert, Buddy/Annie, Tiny/Petey, and Don/Lily.

** "So get up! SQUAWK! Get outside! Get into nature! Get into nature!"
** "I'm not the biggest dinosaur; in fact, I'm kind of tiny. I don't have teeth or scary claws, but it doesn't make me whiny…"
** "[[http://www.televisiontunes.com/Dinosaur_Train_-_I_Love_Trains.html I can't explain, but I won't complain. I only know that I love trains!]]"
** "This is how we memorize dinosaurs from A to Z..."
** "Block party! One and two and three..."
** "What's at the center of the Earth..."
** "All aboard the zeppelin / The Dinosaur Train zeppelin / This whole amazing day just makes me grin / The Dinosaur Train zeppelin!''
