About this deal

When Hugo pulls into Knapford near the end of the episode, the Fat Controller's hat is missing, but reappears in the next scene. Hugo is the only Wood model released in 2018 that did not get a redesign announced for him in 2019. Sir Handel's last speaking role until the twenty-fourth series episode, The Great Little Railway Show, as well as Mr. Percival's last appearance in an episode until the same episode.

Hugo was the last new Wooden Railway character ever produced before Wooden Railway's revival in 2021. Hugo is a fictional standard gauge rail Zeppelin locomotive created by Ian McCue and Andrew Brenner. This marks Hugo's last appearance in an episode and speaking role, with his last appearance overall being Journey Beyond Sodor. Later that night, the engines are at Tidmouth Sheds and they talk about how worried they are. Emily says that she does not want to be replaced as she loves working on the railway, and James and Edward agree. Henry fears they will be sent to the scrapyard, but Gordon does not think he will be replaced at all. Just then, Hugo arrives at the sheds and asks if there is room for him to rest, but the engines tell him that they are unfortunately full and attempt to scare him off by telling him that they are for steam engines only. Before Hugo can get off the turntable, Percy is about to go out and make his mail delivery, so he offers him to stay in his shed, but Gordon denies it as he still does not want all the steam locomotives to be replaced. Fortunately, Hugo assures everyone that he will find a different location to sleep at, so he moves away.A remixed snippet of James' theme composed by Mike O'Donnell and Junior Campbell can be heard when he, Thomas, Percy, and Philip leave Knapford. The Schienenzeppelin was rebuilt several times during its short career; Hugo is based on its appearance "as-built". The first time Jules de Jongh voices Caitlin instead of Rebecca O'Mara, making this the first episode since the fourteenth series episode Being Percy to have Jules de Jongh as part of the UK voice cast. When Hugo arrives at Ulfstead Castle, the music heard is the opening fanfare of Also sprach Zarathustra composed by Richard Strauss.

In 2016, Hugo made his debut in the twentieth series of Thomas & Friends in the episode, Engine of the Future. Caitlin's last speaking role until the twenty-third series double-length episode, Steam Team to the Rescue.

When the engines whistle at Hugo at Knapford station the first time, many of their whistles do not emit any steam. Later, Hugo is to take some important passengers from Knapford Station to Vicarstown, which include the Fat Controller, Lady, Dowager, Stephen, Bridget Hatt the Duke and Duchess of Boxford, the Mayor of Sodor, Lord Callan, and the Thin Controller. Percy is about to apologise to Hugo for what they did, but he is already setting off on his trip. All day long, he carries passengers from one place to another. At Knapford Station, James and Percy are believing rumours that Hugo is not really an engine. The Fat Controller asks Thomas to take him to Ulfstead Castle to find Hugo, which he does, with Percy, James, and Philip making up excuses to go see the engine as well. When they arrive, the Fat Controller can hardly believe what he is seeing. Although, he decides to ride him too. When Hugo starts up, Thomas and Stephen believe that he is amazing. He would later see a real Zeppelin in the sky and felt upset that he could not fly like it. He followed it all over the island and was so keen on flying that he forgot to turn off his propeller upon entering Knapford's platform. Sir Topham Hatt explained that he is a rail Zeppelin meant to travel on the rails and not in the sky.

In 2009, the series introduced Computer-Generated Imagery (CGI) as a replacement for the show's long-standing live-action models. In 2016, Hugo was created from scratch in CGI by Arc Productions for the twentieth series. The model was "hand-sculpted" in Maya, a 3D animation and modelling software. Thomas says that he sometimes wished and dreamed that he could fly, which is a reference to the nineteenth series episode, The Other Side of the Mountain. A very unusual, fast engine has arrived on Sodor. He races past the narrow gauge engines, the main line engines and the Fat Controller. When he arrives at the station at Ulfstead Castle, he introduces himself as Hugo, along with his driver, Franz, who is old friends with the Earl. Sir Robert Norramby decides to go for a ride, so he climbs aboard and they set off. Hugo is a kind and gentle engine. He loves to be useful, but is also a bit sensitive. This was shown when his feelings were hurt by the other engines ostracising him, out of fear that his kind would replace them; but they soon saw that they were wrong and apologised to him.
