- “Goodness! You're a real mucky buffers!”
- ―Madge to Skarloey
Wash Behind Your Buffers is the twenty-third episode of the eleventh series.
There is to be an Engine Rally and Country Show, and Skarloey and Rheneas are to lead the rally. Mr. Percival asks Madge to deliver brushes and soap to make sure the two engines are clean for the event. However, Madge spends too much time making sure they are clean that she does not have time to clean herself. She arrives at the rally looking filthy and accidentally sprays Skarloey and Rheneas with mud. However, the workmen begin cleaning them up again and the two engines return the favour by instructing the workmen. They are soon polished in time for the rally to begin.
