James is a rhyming magazine story.
James sees a train that consists of tidy carriages, a guard's van loaded with luggage, and tight couplings. He wonders, enviously, whose train it is. Suddenly, his name is called. The train is for him.
- In the final illustration, James could be coloured in by the reader.
