- 2000 (Light brown claw, stripes facing diagonally right, three front and rear windows)

- The 2000 Diesel 10 was first released in special Thomas and the Magic Railroad themed packaging.
- His 2011 model is featured in special Day of the Diesels themed packaging.
- The prototype 2011 Diesel 10 had the previous version's face.
- The first prototype 2013 Diesel 10 uses the 2011 version with the stripes facing diagonally left. The second prototype is a Photoshopped image.
- Until 2011, Diesel 10 had 3 windows on the front and rear. This is inaccurate, since he has two on each end in the television series, as do real Class 42 "Warships".
- The BRIO Diesel 10 has a claw that is designed more like a crane arm, since it can move up and down, as well as left and right, and includes a magnet tethered to a string. It can also extend out. Thus, the shape of the engine is inaccurate.
- He was not featured in the 2000 pamphlet, but was featured in the yearbook.
