- “I'm not scared of the Whistling Wood
I'll puff straight on like Thomas would!”
Toby and the Whistling Woods is the fifth episode of the fourteenth series.
Toby has to take some coal to the Duke and Duchess of Boxford's summerhouse. Toby's usual route to the summerhouse is obstructed by a tree that was blown down in a storm, so he is told to go through the Whistling Woods. Toby does not like the woods because he thinks they are scary.
At the junction, he meets James and Thomas shunting trucks. They ask Toby if he is okay because he ignores their cheery "hello." Toby does not think an old engine should ask a younger engine for help, so he turns down Thomas' offer of travelling through the woods with Toby, who steams boldly on.
Inside the woods, Toby hears a scary noise. Toby is so scared he quickly reverses back to the junction and biffs into the line of trucks Thomas and James have shunted. This time it is James who offers to take Toby through the woods, but again, Toby refuses and heads back in. This time Toby gets further into the woods before he hears another scary sound. This makes Toby reverse back to the junction again and he biffs James and Thomas' trucks again.
This time, both James and Thomas offer to escort Toby through the woods and, although Toby really wants to accept their help, he does not and heads back in once more. This time, he hears the scariest noise of all. He rushes back to the junction and this time he completely derails Thomas and James' trucks. Toby realises the trouble he has caused and now he is late with his delivery, too. He finally finds the courage to ask the younger engines for help. To his surprise, they do not tease him and call him a "scaredy engine," they are more than happy to help their friend.
Thomas, James, and Toby puff through the woods together. Toby finds out that the first noise he heard was Thomas' friend, the snowy owl, the second was the woodland waterfall, and the third was just the wind whistling through the trees. With the help of his friends, Toby finally reaches the summerhouse and now he knows that he is never too old to ask for help.
