And Henry puffed quickly away.


  • Henry
  • Salty
  • Murdoch
  • Arthur
  • Cranky
  • Sir Topham Hatt


  • In the original Cranky was going to tip over the trucks.
  • In a deleted scene, Cranky is shown unloading the things for Henry's train.


  • Surely the shunters would have released the breaks on the truck, but he was shown running towards Salty.
  • Henry pulls twenty trucks like in a real Thomas episode "The World's Strongest Engine".
