―Madge spraying snow over a policeman

Cool Truckings is the twenty-second episode of the eleventh season.


Thomas has arrived at the Transfer Yards to collect some coal, but snow has blocked the line and Duncan is unable to shunt the coal trucks into place. Madge offers to take him to the other side of the yards and Duncan is winched up.

While driving through the countryside, Duncan complains that the journey is boring and Madge is too slow, so she speeds up and drives up a bumpy country lane. Duncan is delighted when Madge starts spraying snow everywhere, even more so when they approach the top of the hill and run down, but ice has covered the road ahead and Madge slips onto the edge of a cliff. Luckily, she is able to reverse back onto the road and they make it safely home.

That night, Madge arrives at the sheds to find Duncan has told the other engines and she sprays the delighted engines with snow.




  • The title of this episode is a reference to the 1993 Disney film Cool Runnings.

  • One of the trees in the background changes after Madge leaves the Transfer Yards.

  • After Duncan pulls the coal trucks for Thomas, the second to last truck wobbles.
