- Thomas rescues Stephen from an abandoned mine shaft. As they're leaving, the bridge beneath them starts to break apart. Jack jumps in and holds the bridge up long enough for Thomas to pull Stephen to safety.
- Gordon and Spencer's first race. From Gordon dragging the four heavy express coachs fast enough to catch a light engine Spencer, to Spencer smoothly using his lead to cross Gordon's track, all reeks of awesome.
- A few meta-examples are also a present. The camera angles on Gordon and Spencer's first race, and the first opening of Ulfstead's drawbridge, and the appearance of James, Thomas, and Percy in a triple header, all prove that Andrew Brenner knew what he was doing with this movie.
