"The passengers all said what a bad railway it was. Then they told the man how bad he was instead. Everyone was very cross!"
— The Narrator, James and the Coaches, first season

Jeremiah Jobling

Jeremiah Jobling was once a passenger on James' train.


After James bumped the coaches too hard, it was Jeremiah Jobling who had the leather bootlaces needed to mend the brake-pipe along with the newspaper. When he refused to give up the laces, the passengers pressured him into giving them to the guard. It was not revealed if they were returned.

In the television series, his model later appeared, ironically, as a railway inspector.
