Mr. Percival, also known as The Thin Controller, is the head of the Skarloey Railway in the television show Thomas and Friends. Introduced in the show's ninth season, he dresses similarly to Sir Topham Hatt, as well as wearing glasses and a bowler hat. In the US version, he is sometimes referred to as the Narrow-Gauge Controller.

According to an issue of the Thomas magazine, his full name is Mr. Peregrine Percival. The same issue also states that he is married to a woman named Polly, has four children, and that his hero is the Fat Controller. However, not everything in the magazine series is necessarily canon to the TV series.
