"Jem Cole says he never drove a better engine!"
Charlie Sand, Saved from Scrap, second season

Jem Cole

Jem Cole is Trevor's and George's driver and is a good friend of Reverend Charles Laxey. He has his own yard at Killaban.


Jem, along with Farmer Trotter and others, was a part of the rescue team which found Duke. He appears to be the "jack-of-all-trades" sort of man. He seems to be very knowledgeable about road steam traction, as he has also driven George. Jem Cole is a skilled mechanic, as shown when he restored Elizabeth. As of the eleventh season, he appears to be working as a farmer and has grown a grey beard. In the fifteenth season, he was seen fishing with a little boy in the Whistling Woods; this could possibly be his son or grandson. In Day of the Diesels, he helped to extinguish a fire at a barn. In the sixteenth season, he helped to put out another fire, this one at The Fat Controller's Shed.

He has previously worked as a railway ganger.

He has his own yard at Killaban.

In the Thomas Saves the Day PC game, he owns a work shed at the bottom of Gordon's Hill, where Elizabeth rests.


He dresses in typical farmer clothing with a brown fedora, a red/orange vest, white button down shirt, brown trousers and black rubber boots.
