The "Steam Team" is a group of engines that was first implemented in the eighth season of Thomas & Friends. The group is made up of the North Western Railway's first seven engines, as well as Emily. Since the eighth season, the members of the Steam Team have been portrayed as the main characters of the television series.



  • According to Sam Barlow, Duck was planned to be a member of the Steam Team. However, he was dropped from the group as the crew needed to make room for Emily to give a female engine a more prominent role.[1]
