James is a smart red engine. He is a sassy, vain mixed traffic engine who hardly stops bragging about his bright red paint and brass dome. This can often lead him trouble, as he doesn't always know when he goes too far. That aside, he is a hard, useful worker whom everyone loves. James didn't like Pumpkin when he met him, and even tried to bump him off the rails. This failed, and all James did was hurt himself. With Pumpkin's help, he managed to get collected and now, he isn't necessarily friends with Pumpkin, but he respects him and his fellow diesels, and that's all he asks of James.
James is based on a Lancashire and Yorkshire Railway class 27 rebuilt into a class 28 2-6-0 with added pony truck, removed sandboxes, and Fowler tender.
