James and the Trouble with Trees - S5-E5

Cranky Bugs - S5-E1

Plot hole: When Cranky drops his load by Thomas' flatbeds, all four tracks end in the shed behind him, so it should've be impossible for Thomas to first approach Cranky from that direction as it is shown on the screen.

Horrid Lorry - S5-E2

Continuity mistake: When Lorry 1 returns after falling into the sea, he is covered in algae and seaweed even though he wasn't submerged. He gains some more of it when Thomas sees him.

Continuity mistake: When Toby comes up to the junction, the lever to the points isn't actually there. It is only seen in this episode in the shot showing where his fireman switches them.
