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. 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, he later appeared, ironically, as a railway inspector. Since the fourteenth season, he has often been seen with a lady, this may be his wife.
