One of the best series ever for kids
29 February 2000 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The Shining Time Station is a great series for kids. It showcases what is good in the world of trains and teaching lessons that are good for them. Also, the show can be funny at times. But of course, what brings the show to be one of the best is the acting by George Carlin as Mr. Conductor (he received a Emmy nomination for it). Entertaining and enlightening throughout.
