WMG: Shining Time Station
Mr. Conductor is a Time Lord
Think about it: he has changed appearance at least once (twice if you factor for Thomas and the Magic Railroad
), plus he regularly regales stories about a place where steam locomotives are still common, diesel engines are considered new-hat and Sodor is run by a man who clearly resembles a railway baron of the early 20th century.
- Let's not forget he took the kids back in time in the finale.
It's all there in the theme song. "Follow the rainbow"? "Your own imagination is waiting for you"?
