"I can't arrive at the picnic on such a dirty train! What would my public say?"
— Alicia Botti

Toby's Triumph is the sixteenth episode of the eleventh season.


It was autumn on the Island of Sodor and the engines were getting ready for the harvest festival. Sir Topham Hatt arrived at Tidmouth Sheds and gives Toby the job to take Alicia Botti to a special picnic for a concert. When Sir Topham Hatt said that Alicia Botti is an important passenger, Toby started to worry that he might make a mistake and still worried while he and Henrietta were given a washdown and the Refreshment Lady set up a special tea for Alicia Botti.

When Toby left Maron, he went too fast when he reached a bend and stopped too quickly when the signal turned red which made all the food and tea spill. Toby made another mistake by puffing onto a dusty branch line and it covered him and Henrietta in leaves. When Thomas puffed by pulling tomatoes, he said hello to Toby and asked what happened to him, but Toby did not hear as he was still worried. Toby was so worried he did not see Jem Cole or heard Elizabeth trying to warn him about the big puddle of mud on the track, but Toby was going too fast to stop in time and he splashes into the puddle and he and Henrietta got covered in mud.

Toby arrived at the Airport, but Alicia Botti was upset that she could not arrive on a clean train, so she arranged for Toby and Henrietta to be washed down and Toby stopped worrying. After they were shiny and clean, Toby puffed to the picnic with Alicia Botti and arrived on time without any mistakes.




  • For unknown reasons, when the episode aired on PBS in the US and Nick Jr. in the UK, the scene of Sir Topham Hatt arriving is actually mirrored, but since it was full-screen and Toby's number could not be seen, it cannot be determined.
  • Jem Cole, who now has grey hair and a beard, is the farmer.
  • This episode marks Elizabeth's last speaking role to date and Alicia Botti's first speaking role since her debut.


  • Gordon has Edward's whistle sound.
  • There are trucks blocking in front of Toby's way at Tidmouth Sheds.
  • Half of the car park at Maron is replaced with trees.
  • Lady Hatt's model from the tenth season episode, The Green Controller is used in the crowd scene, but Lady Hatt is at the picnic.
  • Elizabeth has Bertie's horn sound.
  • In some scenes, Toby's eyes are wonky.
