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.

Shining Time Station is a stop on the Rainbow Line.
It's all there in the theme song. "Follow the rainbow"? "Your own imagination, waiting there for you"?
  • Jossed. It's a stop on the Indian Valley Railroad.
    • Couldn't it be both?
      • No.
        • Yes.
