Model: OO gauge DC. James, the red locomotive with moving eyes.

Prototype: James is a red 2-6-0 steam locomotive ("Mogul" wheel arrangement) with tender number 5. James first appeared in 1946 in the second book of Reverend Wilbert Awdry's The Railway Series, entitled "Thomas the Tank Engine", and two other books in the series are dedicated to him, No. 3 "James the Red Engine" and No. 28 "James and the Diesel Engines". He pulls the red wagons on the main line. All the locomotives in the Railway Series are based on real historic locomotives; James bears a resemblance to the Lancashire and Yorkshire Railway's Class 28, a 0-6-0 tender locomotive for mixed traffic designed by George Hughes in 1912/13.
