Continuity mistake: Throughout most of the sequence where Thomas pulls the troublesome trucks, the trucks keep changing positions numerous times and many of the trucks disappear and reappear. Also, in a few scenes, there is only 1 truck or just 5 trucks.
Audio problem: In the 1992 "Thomas Gets Tricked" VHS release, the music stops and a man's voice says, "Look out for the train!" when Thomas climbs up Gordon's Hill. The voice can still be heard in the 1995 release, but the music does not stop.
Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the episode, the order in the sheds is Henry, Thomas, Gordon, James and Edward. But, when Thomas is complaining, the order is now Thomas, Gordon, James, Edward and Henry.
