Scrubbed Up is a short magazine story.
Bill and Ben are grubby and dirty from working at the quarry, so they are sent to the washdown. At the washdown, the twins meet James, who is also having a washdown. Bill and Ben are very impatient, so James decides to tease the twins. However he is most surprised when the tank engine twins receive new coats of paint for their hard work at the quarry, instead of a washdown!
- In the final illustration, James and Bill can be coloured in by the reader.
