Trivia

  • This marked the first all-new content released for Chuggington in nearly five years, as well as the first released from Herschend Entertainment Studios.
  • Several shots or portions of animation seem to have been recycled from or call back to previous episodes:
    • Chugging Home
    • Brewster's Song
      • Brewster pulling a train out at the Drop and Load Yard is recycled from Brewster Makes Tracks (with a longer line of gravel hoppers replacing the scrap loads).
      • Brewster helping Old Puffer Pete up the hill references Action Brewster.
      • Brewster using the track cleaner in one of the Coloured Tunnels reuses animation data from the "Chuggineer Chant" music video, along with a shot of Brewster at Rocky Ridge Quarry.
      • Brewster pulling up a load of containers is on the same angle as a similar shot in Cormac Patrol.
      • Brewster moves back with a monkey inside his cab, who proceeds to throw a banana peel at the camera, like at the end of Brewster Goes Bananas.
    • Wilson's Song
      • Wilson racing towards and into Rocky Ridge Mine is reused data from the "Chug Patrol - Ready to Roll" music video.
      • Wilson, Mtambo and Brewster together at the Safari Park, in a shot with a similar setup to one in Wilson's Wacky Tour.
      • Wilson struggling with CP2, similar to Fearless Wilson.
      • Wilson, Brewster, and Koko tossing fruit at the Safari Park is reused data from Deputy Chug Patrollers.

      • The shots of Wilson coupling to and leaving the Ice Cream Factory with the refrigeration wagon reuses data from Wilson and the Ice Cream.
