A cute little girl has won over the hearts of train drivers with her adorable trackside appearances, giving drivers safety advice and showing them her latest toys.
For her efforts, Amelia Fowle, aged two, gets a blast of the train horn when they go past – with drivers admitting she brightens up their day.
Amelia, a huge fan of Thomas the Tank Engine, believes all trains are called Thomas and loves spending her days waiting for them as they past her home near Glasgow.
Her father, Alasdair, has filmed his daughter shouting ‘Hello Thomas’ as a ScotRail train passes. She was also filmed showing one driver her latest pig toy and another her dolly in a pram.
Amelia is also filmed as she yells ‘Happy New Year’ to one train and tells another train in the wintry conditions to ‘be careful, Thomas’.
One of the most heart-warming clips shows a train speeding through a station, with Amelia saying ‘slow down, Thomas’.
The clips posted by Alasdair have been viewed more than 11,000 times on Twitter.
The 35-year-old said: ‘Amelia loves trains and luckily there is a train line within walking distance of our home.
‘She gets so excited when she sees ‘Thomas’ and loves it when the driver sounds the horn to say hello back – it’s all she will talk about for the rest of the day.’
He added: ‘The videos of Amelia trainspotting have been popular. Her infectious enthusiasm for trains offers a spot of light relief for people across the country.’

In the videos you can see the young trainspotter taking her toys ‘Piggy’ and ‘Baby Angiebelle’ to join in her fun. She points the train out to the toys, shouting: ‘LOOK’.
