George Carlin would have been the only US narrator with Ringo Starr's narrations being exclusive to English speaking parts of Europe and Australia.
The episodes would have aired in order in US broadcasts.
This season would have used the models, sets, lighting and music from Season 3.
Most of the season's scripts were partially edited for the US versions.
The engines would gain permimant head and tail lamps from this season onward as later seen in the Arc/Jamfilled era.
Henrietta would have been given a modeled clay face from this season onward as later seen in the Arc/Jamfilled era.
The restored openings would have retained "The Tank Engine" in the title with the restored versions also retaining the original end credits with the still picture from the last scene of the episode.
All US versions would use the Season 3 intro and credits.
Henry would have no errors of switching between his old and new shapes. Henry would also maintain his wheel arches in his new shape as seen in Season 2 onward.
In this universe the target audience of the TV Series would have been aimed for ages 6 and up.
Eagle would replace Thomas' role in Come Out, Henry! and Thomas would not appear in the first season until Thomas Gets Tricked.
Henry's reason for going on strike at the end of Tenders and Turntables would be for being shut up in the tunnel.
This would be the only season to feature Eagle, 98462 and 87546. But they will later return in the alternate version of The Adventure Begins.
This season would have been produced along side the first season of Tugs as both shows would start in 1989 in this alternate universe.
Two story segments are counted as one full episode due to only being 4:30 mins long.
