Thomas Top 5 is a series of YouTube videos. Produced in a similar format with the Top 5 Moments series, each installment features a countdown of five fan-favourite moments in the series based around a certain theme, picked out by kids, some of which also narrate the shorts in a second-person viewpoint. The intro features stylized graphics of Thomas, Edward, Henry, a 4-6-0 version of Gordon, and James. Thomas also features in a secondary element, transporting letters in a wagon shaped like a fowler tender.
