A Beloved Christmas Classic
18 November 2015 | by johnlabouyerSee all my reviews

Shining Time Station was a beloved children's railway series. This is a heartwarming Christmas special that we will never forget. Mr. Conductor has always been my favorite character along with Schemer, Stacey, the kids from Shining Time, The Jukebox Band, and Thomas the Tank Engine. I wish the t.v. series were on television again because I miss all the special lessons and funny scenes I enjoyed as a kid. This Christmas special is one that we will never forget. You and you're child will enjoy this beloved episode and always remember it in you're hearts. Nothing is better than a quiet time watching a railroad series unforgettable and happily memorable.
