Trivia

  • The prototype TrackMaster (Revolution) Edward shows him with no painted front wheels, as well as painted buffers.
  • The Trackmaster (Revolution) Edward has his side rods starting in the second row of the pilot wheels, thus making the side rods longer than previous models, and also making it inaccurate.
