  • Episode Description
  • As the queen and the prince were travelling on a train, two thieves detached their train wagon. The royal family accidentally ended up at Shining Time Station. Nobody knew that the queen was a real one. The queen also brought her jewelry in the station, but forgot them when she went to Ginny's house for tea. It was Schemer who found the jewelry and he decided to keep it for himself. Meanwhile, the prince met Becky, Kara and Kit and became friends with them. He was very happy because he got a chance to hang out with ordinary people, a wish that he always wanted to fulfill. The next day, it was the talent show at Shining Time Station. The kids performed a play, while Schemer showed his singing talents by chanting the song "My Queen!" The two theives suddenly interrupted the show and began to chase after the queen and Schemer in order to rob the jewels. Schemer and the queen escaped on a motorcycle while the theives chased them on a truck. The theives were later stopped by JB King and Stacy Jones.moreless

    Notes (4)

    • The train Stacy and Mr. King use to catch Biff and Bull is the same one from Billy's Thanksgiving.

    • This is the last family special, but not the last of any episodes at all.

    • Final appearances of Stacy, Schemer, Becky, Kara, Kit, Mr. King, Midge, Ginny, Felix, and the Jukebox band. Mr. Conductor is the only main character to appear in every episode of the series. Also he is the only character to appear in future episodes.
