The watermill has appeared in the opening credits for the sixth series, and from the eighth to eighteenth series.
In Thomas and the Magic Railroad, the guard rails and arch disappear and the arch is covered by various shrubbery instead. The building also gains an additional window.
The number of tracks inconsistently changes between one and two.
Despite being on Thomas' Branch Line, mainline engines like Henry, Gordon and James can be seen passing by the Watermill in some episodes.
