A Place Unlike Any Other
Matt, Stacy, Tanya and Harry arrive at Shining Time Station.
They find out that the station is an old, but very special place.
"Like they say, there is
just something about this place..."
Does It Bite?
Matt and Tanya meet Mr.Conductor for the first time and become
friends with him. Matt learns to overcome his fear and realizes
that he should not be afraid of Harry.
And the Band Played Off
Stacy made a mistake on the train schedule. This causes a train
passenger to miss his train, and he gets very upset.
Matt, Tanya and Mr.Conductor helped Stacy and made her realize
that people often make mistakes, as long as they learn from them.
Pitching In And Helping Out
Mr. Conductor shows the kids that a lot of nice things can be made with
a ball of string. The kids use it to make decorations and help Schemer
tie his shoes.
Show and Yell
Matt and Tanya did a puppet show. It was not a success at first, but
with the help of Harry, Stacy and Mr.Conductor, the kids learn that
they should always try their best and never give up.
Faith, Hope and Anxiety
The kids are sad because Harry could not take them fishing.
Stacy cheers them up and told them not to let this
disappointment ruin their day.
Agree to Disagree
Matt wants to read a book, but Tanya wants him to play. They get
into an argument. They learn that they can do different things and
still be friends.
Whistle While You Work
Schemer thinks that little jobs (like cleaning up the station) are not
important. This causes him to have some problems
and he later learns to take more responsibility.
Two Old Hands
Mr.Conductor does not want to talk to Harry because he is afraid
that Harry will not like him. Matt and Tanya encouraged Mr.Conductor
to prepare a surprise birthday party for Harry.
Matt and Tanya learn the importance of being careful to avoid accidents.
Ring in the Old
Matt and Tanya learn to appreciate old people and realize that
old people have a lot to share with young people.
Schemer likes to play jokes on people. When one of his jokes backfires, he
learns that some times are better than others to play jokes.
Matt and Tanya found a saxophone in the lost and found. When the
concerned owner of the saxophone
comes to the station to look for the instrument, the kids learn that
it is wrong to take something that belongs to someone else.
Just Wild about Harry's Workshop
Schemer wants to turn Harry's workshop into a snack bar. When his arcade
broke down, he learns how important the workshop is. He realizes that without
the workshop, Harry cannot fix his arcade.
When Stacy was absent, Schemer bought many arcade items and turned
the station into an amusement park. Later, Stacy gets in trouble with
J.B. King, who wants to close the station.
The station has a reduced train schedule and everybody is concerned
that the station would be forced to close. Midge Smoot comes and convinces
the people to realize how important the station is.
Too Many Cooks
Schemer uses the wrong ingredients to make a sandwich spread for
the mayor's party. The mayor got mad at Schemer, so Stacy and the kids
help Schemer prepare a new sandwich spread.
Mapping it Out
Matt and Tanya go on a train ride without telling anyone.
This causes Harry and Stacy to worry a lot. The kids learn that
they must always tell an adult where they are going.
Things that Go Ga-Hooga! in the Night
Everybody camps out at the station at night. Schemer uses the occasion
to scare everyone, but his plan backfires and at the end, it is him who
is scared of the dark.
Is This The End?
Everybody is sad because J.B. King announces that the
station will close. He later changes his mind when he learns that
Mr.Conductor lives at the station.
