Pre-release and unused content

Main article: List of Thomas & Friends: Racing around Sodor pre-release and unused content


  • The game is a sequel of the Thomas & Friends app, Race On!, as a result, several references from said game are also in the game, such as:
    • The models and the animation are the same as they were in said game, along with new models.
    • The music is the same as it was in said game.
    • The narrator's lines were reused from said game.
  • Donald and Douglas are the only playable characters in the game to appear in two levels, their levels being Edward's Branch Line and The Little Western (although, they only make non-playable appearances in The Little Western). Thomas was also the only playable character to appear in two levels (them being Tidmouth in Winter and Ulfstead Castle), but since the October 2016 update when he was replaced by Glynn on the Ulfstead Castle level, he only appeared in Tidmouth in Winter.
  • James, Percy, Toby, Emily, Diesel, Ashima, Yong Bao, Raul, Axel and Ivan are the only playable characters in the game to not appear in any of the levels before being purchased.
