Night Train is a song from the fifth season dedicated to the post train and The Flying Kipper. The song is based on the post train theme from the third season which in turn is partly based on Thomas' theme. A version of the song with completely different lyrics that was in fact not about night trains at all, but rather about Thomas and Percy entering a mine, was heard in the Thomas Saves The Day live show. The original song was later re-released with a new CGI music video as part of Thomas' YouTube World Tour on September 30th, 2015.

Lyrics

See how the night sky glows,
See the light from the night train,
The fire glow from the night train.
On down the line he blows...
Woooooo-oooooo!!!
On down the line he blows.
All through the night he goes.
Hear the sound of the night train,
The chugga-chug-chugg of the night train.
Hear how his whistle blows...
Woooooo-oooooo!!!
Hear how his whistle blows.
Pulling, heaving, big engine breathing.
Pistons pushing side by side.
Driver checking, gauging, peering,
Fireman stoking by his side.
On down the line they go.
Fast track for the mail train,
Clear away for the post train.
Non-stop all night they go...
Woooooo-oooooo!!!
Non-stop all night they go.
See how the night sky glows.
Clear ahead for the night train,
Green light for the night train.
On down the track he blows...
Woooooo-oooooo!!!
On down the track he blows.
Dawn is breaking, sleepy town waking.
Children waving, watch him go.
Freight trains, milk trains,
Boat trains waiting,
Stand aside to let him go.
There in the morning glow
The sunlight on the night train,
Silhouettes the night train.
On down the line he blows...
Woooooo-oooooo!!!
There in the morning glow.
On down the line he blows
Hear the sound of the night train,
The chugga-chug-chugg of the night train.
Hear how his whistle blows...
Woooooo-oooooo!!!
Hear how his whistle blows.
On down the line he blows,
On down the line he blows.

Thomas Saves The Day Lyrics

Into the mines we go

We're a little bit scared but

Now we're together

Together here we go (Woooo woooo!)

Together here we go

When you are all alone

The mine seems so scary

Dark, dark and so scary

Friendship will light the way (Woooo woooo!)

Friendship will light the way

Thomas leading, Percy shaking

Thomas bravely leads the way

Percy's nervous but he knows

With Thomas he will be okay

When you are all alone

The mine seems so scary

Dark, dark and so scary

Friendship will light the way (Woooo woooo!)

Friendship will light the way

Friendship will light the way
