Hi everyone, I'm SteamTeam one of the admins here. I am now also an admin of the Sooty Wikia (see bottom of this page for link).
I live in the UK.
I am 22 years old (9th March 1994) and have watched Thomas since I was little. I loved it then and love it now. My favourite episodes are Stepney Gets Lost, Thomas, Percy and the Post Train and Off the Rails. My other favourite TV shows include Sooty, Family Guy and American Dad!

What I'm doing - RIGHT NOW!
At the moment I'm hosting and writing SteamTeam Quizzes each week for Calico's YouTube channel. I'm also planning Series 2 of Ronnie the Mole and Recent Purchases.
And there's also a good chance I'll be listening to Phil Collins and Genesis whilst doing all of the above!
My Work for Other Users
I do quite a lot of voice work for other users' series as well as my own. Here's some of it:
- Wilbert the Forest Engine (2013) - BramGroatFilms - The Fat Controller
- Lbbrian's Wooden Railway series (multiple episodes, 2011) - Storyteller
- Thomas and Gordon (2013) - thetttecommunity - Gordon
- Ronnie the Mole - Calico TV - Sam, Mabel and Richard (my own puppet series on Calico's channel)
- donald9anddouglas' Wooden Railway/Trainz series (2013 - 2014) - Multiple voices including Toby, Luke, Bear and 'Arry
- TTTE Wikia Promotional video (2013) - TTTE Wikia - Narration
- Misadventures of Oliver, Toad, Gordon and Stepney (2014) - ilovetrain323 - The Fat Controller and Percy
- Sticks and Stones (2014) - Stick of Rock Productions - Multiple voices
- Tales from the Sudrian Railway (2013) - DALEKSLAYER1 - Storyteller
- A Close Shave (Trainz Thomas & Friends) - Deverton Junction - Diesel (uncredited)
I have also written for the following series:
- Sticks and Stones - Stick of Rock Productions - One episode (also script editor)
- Wooden Railway - TheSodorSteamworks - Four episodes
- Tales from the Sudrian Railway - DALEKSLAYER1 - Two Episodes: "Duck and Dart" and "Strike!"
I also provided many of the scripts for my own puppet show series "Ronnie the Mole" on Calico's channel. I also work as a head writer/script editor, puppeteer, assistant director, editor and producer on the series. I also wrote several scripts and provided many of the voices on my own TrackMaster series.
I don't very often write for other people's series due to not having the time, but I like to write episodes if I have a good idea.
If you would like me to take part in your series you can leave me a message here on the wikia, PM me on YouTube or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
I act as a sort of "agent" for Calico as he is rather busy and has to use my equipment to record on anyway. Like me, he is always happy to voice in other people's series and is very versatile. His best voices include Peter Sam, Spencer, Gordon, Skarloey, Rheneas, Henry, 'Arry and Bert although I think he could probably voice any of the Thomas characters pretty well.
Here is some of his work:
- Ronnie the Mole - Calico TV - Ronnie and Billy (produced by the company he co-owns and released on his own YouTube channel)
- donald9anddouglas' Wooden Railway/Trainz series (2013 - 2014) - Multiple voices including Edward, Bert, Rheneas and Peter Sam
- Misadventures of Oliver, Toad, Gordon and Stepney (2014) - ilovetrain323 - Gordon
- The Mad Controller Reads the Railway Series (Series One) - Calico TV - The Mad Controller
- Sticks and Stones (2014) - Stick of Rock Productions - Multiple voices
If you would like him to appear in your series, it is probably best to contact me (as Calico rarely has time to check his own PMs) and I'll contact him directly on your behalf. Auditions are available on request although they may take a while to do as he can only record lines on Sundays.
So if you would like Calico to appear in your series, you can PM me, leave me a message here or email us at email@example.com
My TrackMaster remakes
Season 7 was released in August 2011. It introduced Hank, Flora, and Jeremy to the series and also gave Salty a proper introduction. Hank and Salty are voiced by MurphyProductions828, Flora is voiced by PrettyRosie1995, and Jeremy was voiced by producer C.E.

There was also a Christmas special in 2011 which focused mainly on the road vehicles. It introduced Max and Monty and Butch into the series. Butch is voiced by Adamandthomas1997 and Max was voiced by Lbbrian. Monty is yet to speak. You can watch Snow Bother by clicking below:
Season six kicked off with a "pilot" episode, Saved You!, Monday September 6th, 2010. That was followed by a week's worth of episodes that were shown over the week starting on November 15th, 2010. It contained two television series-adapted episodes and six original creations written by myself and Thomasfan. It was also the first season to feature a voice cast (except Saved You!). Here's the episodes (to watch them, just click on them);

Things that I have contributed to the Thomas community
Here is a small list of things that I have discovered for the Thomas community or my proudest achievements.
- I found the third picture from the episode The Missing Coach (see right)
- I was the first to discover the characters Den and Owen
- I was the first to find out that Bob Golding and Mike Grady were joining the voice cast
- I was the first to discover the picture of Butch which showed his detailed CGI face (see right)
- I was the first to find out that Rupert Degas voiced Butch and Bertie
- I discovered all thirteen cancelled episodes of Jack and the Pack: No Dozer is an Island, Friendship Story, Treasure Hunt, Safety First, Snow Rescue, Bossy Byron, The Importance of Being Patrick, Alfie Has a Secret, Jack and the Quack, Pop Goes the Diesel, Isobella Gets Steamed, Kelly's Heroes and Jack and Alfie Swap. I also discovered the original titles for Percy's Chocolate Crunch, On Site with Thomas, Percy Helps Out and A Visit from Thomas.
- I was the first to discover that Donald and Douglas were returning in CGI and the first to find out about the special The Legend of the Lost Treasure.
There have been more, but those are my proudest contributions.

My opinion of CGI
When I first heard Thomas & Friends were moving to CGI, I was devastated, I thought it would completely ruin the series. I pre-ordered HOTR and when it came I had my doubts about it, but when I finally watched it I was amazed. I think all the people that dislike the new CGI Thomas should give it a chance. It brings more realism in my opinion, but, don't get me wrong, I loved the old Thomas and am still upset that it is an end of an era, but I think CGI might not be such a bad idea. Just take a look at the CGI promo of Cranky (below), the sea is so wonderfully realistic, something which never could be properly achieved in the model series.
