Toby's Triumph is a magazine story illustrated using photographs from the television series.


The Fat Controller comes to the shed with news that Allicia Botti is arriving on the Island. He then gives Toby the job of collecting her from the airport. Thomas is happy for his friend, but Toby is worried that he may make a mistake. Before Toby leaves the station, the refreshment lady prepares a special tea in Henrietta. Toby is worrying so much that he sets off too fast. He sends the lovely tea flying into the air, ignores some children and takes the wrong track. He finds himself on an old, disused line where he gets covered in leaves and branches. Soon, he finds himself in a muddy pond; he is in a right mess! At the airport, Allicia Botti refuses to get in such a filthy train, so Sir Topham Hatt sends Toby straight to the wash down. Soon, Allicia Botti is satisfied with Toby's cleanliness and is delivered to the picnic fields. The Fat Controller is very pleased and Toby decides that next time he has to take an important passenger, he won't worry so much.
