Duncan Does it All is the twenty-first episode of the eleventh season.


Duncan arrives at the Wharf to collect straw and take them to the farm. He tells Thomas about doing the same job all the time & wanted to do something exciting. Rusty came with trucks of sleight & was tired wi many jobs to do & that his next on was taking sight seers to the ruin castle. Duncan was excited & wanted to help Rusty, so he left his straw & went to collect Rusty's coaches. He takes them to fields & forest.

But he soon bores after having to stop at the ruined castle to let them take photos. He sees Skarloey pulling heavy trucks logs hoping, he's not late to collect sheep & take them to market. Duncan volunteers to do Skarloey's job for him & leaves the passengers behind.

After collecting Skarloey's sheep, he meets Sir Handel at a watertower asking him what he's doing today which was to collect the merry-go-round from the Transfer Yards. Duncan goes to do the job for him before Sir Handel could answer.

When Duncan arrives at the Transfer Yards, he finds Mr. Percival scolding Rusty and Skarloey for muddling everything up. Duncan knows it is his fault and takes the blame. Mr. Percival sends him to sort everything out.

Duncan collects his straw, with Thomas surprised to see Duncan as he wanted to do something other than collecting straw, but Duncan insists that he enjoys doing the same job & heads to the farm. On the way he sees Rusty at the castle, who was wondering if he would like to take his passengers to the forest & Skarloey at market who offered him to collect cows, but Duncan insists that pulling straw was more exciting. Duncan arrives at the farm & was happy to be a really useful engine.
