Down at the Station is a series of informative live-action segments featured on Thomas and Friends DVDs in the UK and in between episodes on PBS in the US, as well as the official Thomas and Friends YouTube channel. They are produced by Leighton Cheal and directed by Ben Hall. In the series, real operating railways are presented, showing what passengers do during journeys, and informing viewers of what railway staff do at work.

- In the segment "Evening" you can see a locomotive made up to look like Thomas in a shot of the yards.
- At the end of the original "Whistle" segment, the camera on top of an engine's roof gets knocked over by a tree branch. This was later cut from the video.
- "The End of the Line" was renamed "End of the Line" in the US, but Michael Brandon still says "The End of the Line".
- During "Fireman", a camera crane and a cameraman are seen.
- When the driver first uncouples the engine in "The End of the Line", the locomotive is facing away from the carriages, but in the next shot the locomotive is facing towards the carriages (its reflection is in the carriage window).
