“I'll never deliver the parcels on time now.”

Edward and the Mail is the fourteenth episode of the eleventh season.


Percy is in need of maintenance and the other engines nominate Edward to do the mail run, thinking that he knows what to do. Edward does not, but so as not to look inexperienced, he decides to collect the mail anyway. Unfortunately, he mixes all the deliveries up; dropping Farmer McColl's parcels off at Maithwaite, giving Abbey School equipment for a party, and unloading the school supplies at Farmer McColl's. When Edward discovers he has mixed everything up, he collects the parcels again and tries to get them to the right places, but he is in such a hurry that he takes a wrong turn and runs into a barrier on a closed branch line. Edward realises that he needs Percy's help and goes to the Works, where Percy explains he just starts at Vicarstown and works his way back to Tidmouth. Edward finally does everything right and feels wiser for taking advice.




  • In the US narration, Henry and the Wellsworth stationmaster both speak with a Southern accent.
  • Going by production order, this is the eighteenth episode of the eleventh season.


  • James' eyes are slightly wonky when he goes up Gordon's Hill.
