Jebediah is a worn-out old steam engine in 1991 film The Little Engine That Could.
Old and wise, Jebediah would love to help out other engines with their bigger jobs. But his chug "just ain't what it used to be!" And going over the steeper lines is too much for him these days. Despite this, he always works hard pulling the milk trains down the Branch Lines of Crotoonia, making sure the towns get fresh milk from the local farms in the morning. He can be rather tired in the morning, and tends to snore quite a bit in the Kahlville roundhouse! He loves a good chat with Old Puffer Pete and Toby, and loves to pass down his immense knowledge of Crotoonian lines, old and new, running and closed, to the younger engines.
Jebediah appears to be based on the American locomotive T. D. Judah rebuilt as a 4-2-2. Tillie is another member of this class.
- Jebediah originated from the 1991 'The Little Engine That Could' movie. Other engines from the film include Big Freighter Pete, Farnsworth, Georgia, Tillie and Doc.
