Chugga Chugga Choo Choo! is the penultimate episode of The Amazing Race 31.
The order of departure from Matejuška Pier is as follows:
Teams must travel by bike to Jachthaven, and then search on foot to find their next clue.
Choice A: High
Teams must bike to a nearby farm, and place a cow statue on a tractor. They will then follow the tractor to Nieuwe Toren, where they must hoist the cow statue to the top of the tower in forty seconds to get their next clue. Becca & Floyd, Colin & Christie, Leo & Jamal, and Tyler & Korey chose this task.
Choice B: Dry
Teams must travel by bike to a nearby farm, where they will need to vault over a water ditch, and pick up a set of two cheeses and a dozen eggs. They must then vault back to the other side and deliver the cheeses and eggs to Kampen Market intact to get their next clue. Only Nicole & Victor chose this task.
Teams must travel by bike to IJssel to find their next clue.
At IJssel, teams would have the option to U-Turn a team, with two slots available. Leo & Jamal used the first slot of the U-Turn on Nicole & Victor. Nicole & Victor used the second slot of the U-Turn on Becca & Floyd. Since Nicole & Victor completed the Dry Detour, they would be forced to backtrack and complete the High Detour before continuing. Since Becca & Floyd completed the High Detour, they would be forced to backtrack and complete the Dry Detour before continuing.
Teams must drive themselves to Smit Giethoorn to find their next clue.
Teams must find a marked boat, using it to travel the canal to find two other marked boats to attach to their boat to create a "boat train". Once they have all three boats, they must make their way to an island in Bovenwijde Lake to check in.
For coming in first place, Colin & Christie won $7,500 each.
