"You're pulling us well! You're pulling us well!"
— the coaches

Flying James is a magazine story.


James is taking the express whilst Gordon is at the works. Everyone is pleased with the way James pulls the express and James gets a bit too boastful. The next day, James gets stuck on the turntable when it jams. The only way he can pull the afternoon express is to be lifted onto the tracks which he does not like one bit. He is glad when Gordon returns.




  • When James is lifted off the turntable, there are no chains around his tender. It would not simply stay in place whilst James is lifted. It should have been removed.
