  • In Germany, it is called the Güterwagen, which translates as "freight van."
  • The Troublesome Brakevan has an imprinted white face because it was intended to look like a plastic face that other engines in the range have. This process was more expensive than the stenciled outline face the Troublesome Truck uses however.
  • According to Roy Wilson, the Troublesome Brakevan was available for short period because it was not terribly popular and did not sell well to consumers.
  • In the 1994 Yearbook, the Troublesome Brakevan was misspelled as Troublesome Breakvan.
