Special versions


  • A flip face version of Gordon was seen on the boxes of some of the earlier TrackMaster products by HiT Toy Company. This however, was never released.
  • Gordon was the only tender engine in the TrackMaster range by Fisher-Price from 2009-2014 with his tender permanently attached to him, as the other tender engines were redesigned to have their tenders separate, and the only tender engine to still be powered by a C battery, until 2015.
  • A prototype version of Gordon shows him with a red piston.
