Rosie the Little Purple Engine is a red (formerly lavender) tank engine who works on the Fat Controller's railway. She is voiced by Teresa Gallagher in the UK and Jules de Jongh in the US and later Nicola Stapleton in the UK and US. She is one of the second main protagonists. She often cameos in several episodes of the CGI series from S17 to The Great Race..In her introduction, during an autumn storm, Thomas was supposed to deliver a train to High Farm. Rosie wanted to help, but Thomas left on his own. Rosie followed him down the line, so Thomas decided to take the shorter, more dangerous route, thinking that Rosie would not follow him. Thomas ended up trapped in an avalanche, but was thankful to see Rosie going by on the other line. Rosie took the train to High Farm, and then brought back the farmer's daughter Alice, who thanked Thomas.

ThemeRosie's theme is her theme from the Season 12 Episode "Rosie and the Funfair Special"
Theme (T,J&H Version)
Rosie's T,J&H theme is Her season 10 theme
- Rosie's name in Japanese: ロージー
- Rosie is a tank engine-despite the fact that she's a lavender color!
- In "Percy's Lucky Day" and "Bill or Ben?" She is seen with a golden headlamp. This might be a mistake, since in the model series she was shown with a white lamp on her footplate.
- In "No More Mr. Nice Engine" Rosie appears without her golden headlamp. The golden headlamp must have of been a mistake.
- Season 17 is the first season since her debut, Rosie has not appeared in at least one episode with a speaking role. She only made cameos.
