Did You Know?
It was originally intended that a circus elephant would rescue Flockton Flyer after the crash. However the baby elephant that was brought for filming would not perform as required and looked absurdly small, so the plot was changed so that a team of shire horses was used instead. In the filmed section, Bill is contemplating joining a circus that was in town, but in the later studio section, he is seen looking at a poster for a horse ploughing contest instead. See more
