"They're the best trucks on Sodor Island! You can't have any new trucks because you won't keep them clean!"
"Oh yes, I would!
— James boasting to Thomas

Truck Trouble! is a magazine story illustrated using photographs from the television series.


James is given brand new trucks. Thomas wonders why he did not get any, but James tells him it is because he cannot keep them clean. Thomas has to collect coal and he, and his old trucks, get filthy. Thomas works out that if they are dirty, it means they are being really useful. At the docks, James laughs at Thomas, but James' trucks want to have fun like Thomas' trucks so they bounce around and the fruit they are carrying ends up all over James.



  • This story is based on the ninth season episode, Thomas' New Trucks.
  • In this story the fruit that lands on James is caused by the trucks, and not Cranky.
