“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
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 started to say it was a bad railway, which 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.
