James is a red 2-6-0 ('Mogul' wheel arrangement) steam engine with the number 5 painted on his tender. James first appeared in 1946 in the 2nd book in 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.'
