Thomas the Tank Engine & Friends

Wonky Whistle - S15-E17

Factual error: A "wonky" whistle doesn't sound like a slide whistle, it should sound like a weakened version of the correct whistle mixed with the hissing sound of steam. A "wonky" whistle would also leak steam constantly instead of being blown like a normal whistle.

Spencer the Grand - S15-E12

Factual error: When Spencer brakes after he hears Percy whistle, his bogey wheels spark, but they do not have brakes.

Henry's Happy Coal - S15-E9

Factual error: Black smoke comes out of Henry's cylinders, when it should only be coming out of his funnel.

Fiery Flynn - S15-E20

Factual error: In the U.K. narration, when Flynn sees Gordon, the narrator says "Flynn steamed in to a stop." but Flynn isn't steam powered. This mistake is fixed in the U.S. narration.

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.
