"Out of the way, empty trucks coming through!"
— Molly

Molly's Special Special is the third episode of the ninth season.


Molly is dismayed that Emily laughed at her for having the job of pulling "empties", so Thomas vows to help her make her trucks look important. Thomas has some tarpaulins put on Molly's empty trucks to create the illusion of covering an important load and is satisfied, but he later rashly tells Gordon that Molly's special will be more important than the Express, and thinks of another idea. He borrows some lights from Maithwaite and has them put on the trucks. The two later show them off to the others, but a gust of wind blows a tarpaulin off and the secret is revealed. Molly, humiliated, steams off, but when news of a special delivery of coal for the engines comes, Molly sees her chance and she and Thomas collect trucks of coal. The two go off to get more trucks, stopping only to tease Gordon, who was stopped at a crossing to let them pass.





  • In a picture where Thomas finds the tarps, the Flour Mill building is not there.
  • Before Molly runs away, Gordon's front bogie wheels are derailed.
  • When Molly and Thomas arrive at the Coaling Plant, a mechanism can be seen on the under carriage of the last truck Thomas is pushing.
  • In the 2010 compilation of the complete ninth season, some of the scenes glitch in the episode.
  • When Thomas and Molly meet Henry, Edward and James, Molly's lamp is on backwards.
