The Pros And Cons Of Living In "Shining Time Station"

1. Remember Shining Time Station?


This kids’ TV show aired on PBS in the ’90s and featured the railroad tales of Thomas the Tank Engine along with the stories of the people of Shining Time Station — a group of kids, station owner Stacy (aka Frenchy from Grease), the magical Mr. Conductor, Schemer (a greedy, sleazy grown-up), handyman Billy Twofeathers, and The Jukebox Band.

It sounds cool…but there are some downsides…

2. Pro: You get to hang out with a miniature Ringo who appears in a cloud of magical gold dust.

4. Pro: There’s not a ton of adult supervision in Shining Time Station. The kids kind of show up and join the grown-ups with whatever they’re doing.

14. Pro: There was this cool, live band inside the jukebox that would play punched-up versions of “Pop Goes the Weasel.” They also pretty much called all the bullshit that went on in the station.

15. Con: They only got paid a nickel per song. Which, once divided among the five of them, and with the cut taken by their agent, amounted to nearly nothing.

16. And to end with one lasting pro: If you don’t like it, you can leave. They got trains and stuff.
