The New Shining Time Station is a reboot of Thomas the Tank Engine and the original Shining Time Station. It airs on PBS between 1999 and 2004.


The Shining Time Station is a train station on the Indian Valley Railroad in a Western part of the United States of America. It is managed by Stacy Jones. Its workshop is run by Harry Cupper and Billy Twofeathers. A local named Horace Schemer, simply referred to as Schemer, runs the station's arcade and serves as the series' comic relief. The narrative is driven by regular and incidental visitors to the station. Mr. Conductor is a tiny man who lives in a signal house inside the station's mural and tells stories taken from Thomas the Tank Engine & Friends to the kids. He also introduces songs to the kids in The Anything Tunnel. Sometimes, he may present a magic bubble to the kids that has the song inside as a way of introducing it.
