James received eight new blue trucks from the Fat Controller after his previous trucks started getting old and unreliable. James forced and wants his new trucks to stay clean, but after seeing that Thomas' trucks are dirty and don't like to stay clean, James' trucks decide to cause mischeif by holding James back when he tries to pull them away, and a crate of Fruit drops all over James.
James' Trucks are based on BR 7 and 8 plank end-door open wagons.
The trucks are painted blue with black frames and have standard grey faces.
- The trucks were recycled as flour trucks with their faces removed in the tenth season episode, Follow that Flour. They were later recycled as funfair trucks in the twelfth season episode, Rosie's Funfair Special.
