They discontinued in 2014 with the sole discontinutation of the whole range, but Troublesome Truck 1 and 2 where rereleased as a double pack in 2015.
- Oddly, the troublesome trucks are long. Oddly, Scruffey uses a different tooling and is the right shape.
- The Troublesome Trucks are the only Thomas characters to date to have different faces, named Troublesome Truck 1 and Troublesome Truck 2.
