Thomas the Tank Engine & Friends

Pop Goes the Diesel - S2-E12

Plot hole: When Duck and Diesel leave the shed, Diesel follows Duck instantly, but the tracks they are on both lead to the turntable. As they are on different tracks to each other, it would be impossible for Diesel to follow Duck that quickly as the turntable could only be set to one track at a time.

Bulgy Rides Again - S7-E19

Continuity mistake: When Bulgy is driving on the road next to the rails, Thomas can be seen pulling a train instead of being repaired at the foundry.
