"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.


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.




  • 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.
  • Half of the parking lot at Maron is replaced with trees.
  • Lady Hatt's model from 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.
