James is a medium-sized engine. His six driving wheels are not as big as Gordon's and not as small as Thomas'. He has a fine scarlet coat and brass dome and likes to think of himself as a Really Splendid Engine. This can occasionally lead to high-falutin' ideas about the sort of work suitable for such a noble creature: invariably they land James into trouble.


  • James is a mixed traffic engine, which means he can pull both passenger coaches as well as freight cars.
