"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)

The Little Blue Tank Engine is a tank engine who could be seen shunting trucks at Tidmouth Yard in two illustrations from James the Red Engine.


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


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, as well as a slight resemblance to an LB&SCR E2 such as Thomas.


The tank engine is painted blue with red lining.
