Quotes

Vickie: Mr. Nicholas, are some people really all alone on Christmas?
Mr. Nicholas: Yes, Vickie. I'm afraid so.
Vickie: Do they all get presents?
Mr. Nicholas: Well, that depends on what you mean by presents. You see, not all presents come wrapped in pretty paper with a ribbon or bow. A present can just be a smile, or a kind word to someone who's feeling sad or poor, or maybe a picture you've drawn.
Vickie: But they don't cost any money.
Mr. Nicholas: Presents don't have to cost money.

A Beloved Christmas Classic
18 November 2015 | by (United States) – See 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.
