"Here are your trucks, James. Have you got some bootlaces ready?!"
— The Little Blue Tank Engine teasing James, James the Red Engine


The Little Blue Tank Engine
  • Gauge: 4 ft 8 1⁄2 in (1,435 mm)

A little blue tank engine could be seen shunting trucks at Tidmouth Yard in a few illustrations from James the Red Engine.


The Little Blue Tank Engine once shunted James's good train for him, and teased him about the incident when James needed bootlaces to mend a hole in his coaches. He ran off laughing rudely, leaving behind a very angry James. It is unknown what happened to the engine afterwards.


The tank engine is painted blue with red lining.


The tank engine's basis is unknown, but he appears to have side tanks from his cab to half-way along his boiler and might have a 0-6-2 wheel arrangement. He also resembles a North Eastern Railway N8/N9/N10 or a London, Tilbury and Southend 69 Class tank. But Althought he does resemble A L&BSCR E2 Like Thomas
