This article is about the segments. You may be looking for the special, the Leapster game, or the book.

Calling All Engines! is a series of informative and interactive segments released alongside the seventeenth, eighteenth, and nineteenth seasons of Thomas and Friends. They are hosted by Sir Topham Hatt and Sir Robert Norramby.

Some of the segments were originally released on the official Fisher-Price website.


Really Useful Engines

The Earl's Quiz


Who's That Engine?

Landmarks of Sodor


These segments take the form of an old-fashioned news-reel with a voice-over by Rob Rackstraw.

The Fat Controller's Tales/Sir Topham Hatt's Tales


  • Specially made footage was used for the "Who's That Engine?" segments.
  • In the Dutch dub of the series, the segments are called "Alle Locomotieven Verzamelen!", which translates out to "All Locomotives Gather!".
  • In the "Who's That Engine?" segment featuring Thomas, one of the clues Sir Topham Hatt uses to describe him are "six small wheels, a short stumpy funnel, and a short stumpy dome," which is a direct reference to the first season episode, Thomas and Gordon.
  • Thomas and Gordon's Really Useful Engine segments got updated on the Fisher-Price website.
  • During Rosie's segment two clips are edited footage; showing her rounding bends with coal trucks. Also the clip with her being painted was only shown for the Fisher-Price version.


  • In the Emily Saves the World segment, the Earl says that the globe landed on Hiro, but it actually landed on one of his trucks.
  • In a closeup shot, smoke is not coming out of Thomas' funnel on his "Who's That Engine" segment.
  • In Gordon's "Who's that engine" segment, his buffer beam is referred as "buffer". This is because the clips are taken from the episode Bust My Buffers!, where the same error happens.
  • Toby's segment states that he does not have a whistle, however Toby does and has used his whistle before, excluding Toby's New Whistle.
  • In the "Who's That Engine?" segment featuring Gordon, in one shot he is pulling express coaches, the next he's pulling red branch line coaches.
