Emily, the Stirling Single, is a fictional anthropomorphic steam locomotive from the television series Thomas & Friends. She is the only female member of the "Steam Team", the eight core characters of the series, and also the only member who does not appear in the original Railway Series books. She is painted dark green, and has large driving wheels and a shiny brass safety valve cover.

When she first arrived on the Island of Sodor, she took Thomas's coaches Annie and Clarabel by mistake, much to Thomas' dismay. However after she rescued Thomas and Oliver from an accident, Thomas forgave her. Sir Topham Hatt (the "Fat Controller") rewarded her with two coaches of her own. From Season 8 onwards she has been depicted as a rather bossy character, which can make her difficult to work with at times. She is sometimes a "big sister" figure to the smaller engines like Thomas and Percy. She speaks with a Scottish accent.
