Basis:[edit | edit source]

James is based on the L&YR Class 28, an 0-6-0 mixed-traffic tender engine built for the Lancashire and Yorkshire Railway between 1909 and 1912, designed by George Hughes. It was rebuild of the previous Class 27, with some modifications. James is an experimental rebuild, with a 2-6-0 wheel configuration instead of an 0-6-0 and a Fowler tender.
