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

Plot

Toby has been asked to take Alicia Botti to a special picnic for a concert. Toby and Henrietta are given a washdown and the Refreshment Lady makes a special tea for Alicia Botti. But Toby is so worried, he spills the food, puffs onto a dusty branch line, and splashes into a muddy puddle. Alicia Botti is mortified to see Toby so muddy at the airport, but arranges for him to be washed and, after realising he should not worry, Toby makes it to the picnic on time - and clean.
