The Engine Rollcall (officially spelt Engine Roll Call) is a songbased around the Steam Team and featured at the end of every episode since the eighth season. An instrumental version of the chorus was used for the credits since the eighth season and for the opening from the eighth to the tenth. In the eleventh season the instrumental was replaced with the chorus for the opening. Terry Tompkins and Steve D'Angelo re-arranged the theme for the nineteenth season onwards. The lyrics have been changed twice: Once for Calling All Engines! and once for The Great Discovery. There is also an alternate rock 'n' roll version.

Lyrics

Season 8 Version

(chorus)

They're two, they're four, they're six, they're eight,
Shunting trucks and hauling freight,
Red and green and brown and blue,
They're the Really Useful crew.
All with different roles to play
'round Tidmouth Sheds or far away,
Down the hills and round the bends,
Thomas and his friends.
Thomas, he's the cheeky one,
James is vain but lots of fun.
Percy pulls the mail on time,
Gordon thunders down the line.
Emily really knows her stuff,
Henry toots and huffs and puffs.
Edward wants to help and share,
Toby, well, let's say, he's square.

(chorus x2)

Calling All Engines version

(chorus)

All the engines are on hand,
Waiting for a plane to land.
Be they diesels, be they steam,
All keep working as a team.
Emily will now go to bed
With all the rest at Tidmouth Sheds.
And no one can remember when
Steamies worked with Diesel 10.

(chorus)

The Great Discovery version

(chorus)

Thomas, he's the cheeky one,
James is vain but lots of fun.
Percy pulls the mail on time,
Gordon thunders down the line.
Emily really knows her stuff,
Henry toots and Edward puffs.
Stanley, he's the new one there,
Toby, well, let's say, he's square.

(chorus)

Thomas Saves The Day (Live Show)

They're two, they're four, they're six, they're eight,
Shunting trucks and hauling freight.
Red and green and brown and blue,
They're the Really Useful crew.
All with different roles to play
'Round Tidmouth Sheds or far away,
Down the hills and round the bends,
Thomas and his friends.
Thomas, he's the cheeky one,
But he always gets things done.
Diesel, he is strong and tough.
Diesel: And I really know my stuff.
Percy pulls the mail on time,
Thomas: And he's a friend of mine.
The engines learned to help and share.
When there's a job, they're always there.
The engines have been working late,
Shunting trucks and hauling freight.
Sir Topham Hatt and Lady: The festival was almost through,
But save by this Really Useful crew.
The engines all have roles to play,
'Round Tidmouth Sheds or far away,
Down the hills and round the bends,
Thomas and his friends.
Thomas and his friends.
Thomas' Driver: We'll take this diamond to the lighthouse right now.
