"I'm a Really Splendid Engine."

— James' catchphrase

James is a red mixed traffic tender engine. He thinks himself and the "Pride of the Line" and brags that he's splendid.


James is a mixed traffic engine,he can pull both coaches and freight cars,he is very vain and thinks he is Splendid.


In the television series,we first saw James in Thomas & The Breakdown Train,where James fell off the rails and onto the grass.

But he was put back on track.

And now works on Sir Topham Hatt's railway.



James is based on the rebuild of a real engine, sort of like The Red Engine, the member of James' class is perhaps the sole survivor of the class.
