The back cover involves stills from the episodes Creaky Cranky and Wonky Whistle which both do not appear on the release.
Furthermore, it's extra features have been confirmed with a team of a triple appearing, one old and two new.

The description reads; Unwrap your favourite episodes with this Thomas & Friends collection. Birthdays always come with surprises when your engine friends are geared up for the celebration.

Percy must safely deliver a beautifully wrapped present, while Thomas encounters a mystery as he takes The Fat Controller to the party. Full steam ahead for birthday fun!
Episodes include;
Percy's Parcel
Double Trouble
The Man in the Hills
The Party Surprise

Extras include;
Watch with Mr. Perkins
Sing-a-Long Song: Roll Along

The DVD has had it's long history of trouble. Originally scheduled for release in Britain as far back as July 11th 2011, it was delayed for a December 12th roll out up to the final latest date.

The Birthday Express marks it's official UK debut on January 16th 2012.

Thanks to MrTrainfan1000 for the alert.
