John is the son of the Elsbridge stationmaster, who later became one of the stationmasters on Thomas' Branch Line.


At Elsbridge station, Thomas was speaking to him about a plan to stop the trucks from causing mischief. John spoke to Daisy about Santa Claus visiting trains as well as people, but she tells him that it's Saint Stevenson who delivers presents to trains, not Santa Claus, and his arrival is noted by the ringing of bells.

In 2011, John was now a stationmaster at the goods depot on Thomas' Branch Line. Percy knew him from his morning mail stops, but the stationmaster said he missed Percy's mail runs, which was weighing on the green engine's mind at the time.
