Navigation is a song from the tenth series about engines learning their routes and knowing all the signals and stations. A second music video was later made using CGI footage as part of Thomas' YouTube World Tour on 1 April 2015.

Lyrics

Series 10 version

When to stop and when to go?
These are things you have to know.
When to start, when to brake?
Choices that you have to make.
To know what signals mean
Where you're going
Where you've been
Where it's straight, where to turn.
All these things you have to learn.
Get to know your navigation.
Handle every situation.
Everytime you leave the station
Know you'll reach your destination.
Get to know your navigation.
Handle every situation.
Everytime you leave the station
Know you'll reach your destination.
Over bridges, through the tunnel
Smoke is streaming from your funnel.
Puffing through the countryside
Taking people on a ride.
When driving down the roads
You'll know where to take your load.
If you're flying through the air
Navigation gets you there.
Get to know your navigation.
Handle every situation.
Everytime you leave the station
Know you'll reach your destination.
Get to know your navigation.
Handle every situation.
Everytime you leave the station
Know you'll reach your destination.
Get to know your navigation.
Handle every situation.
Everytime you leave the station
Know you'll reach your destination.
Get to know your navigation.
Handle every situation.
Everytime you leave the station
Know you'll reach your destination.
When you know a railway sign
You will get there everytime.
You won't get lost again.
You'll know where
And you'll know when.
So, get to know your navigation.
Handle every situation.
Everytime you leave the station
Know you'll reach your destination.
Get to know your navigation.
Handle every situation.
Everytime you leave the station
Know you'll reach your destination.

(Instrumental break)

Get to know your navigation
Handle every situation
Every time you leave the station
Know you'll reach your destination
Get to know your navigation
Handle every situation
Every time you leave the station
Know you'll reach your destination
When you know a railway sign
You will get there every time
You won't get lost again
You'll know where and you'll know when
So, get to know your navigation
Handle every situation
Every time you leave the station
Know you'll reach your destination
Get to know your navigation
Handle every situation
Every time you leave the station
Know you'll reach your destination
