“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[src]

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 to the guard, the train was unable to continue, causing the passengers to become angry at the railway and at Jobling, which pressured him into giving them to the guard, temporarily repairing the damage and allowing James to finish his journey. It was not revealed if they were returned, although they might have been.

In the television series, it appears that he has become a railway inspector and once requested James to take him to the Fat Controller for a meeting.
