Horace Schemer, known as just simply Schemer to his friends, is the owner and operator of the arcade of Shining Time Station.

Bio

Schemer lives up to his surname by coming up with outlandish and eccentric schemes which always seem to backfire on him. His roguish ways and mannerisms always irritate his very forgiving friends at Shining Time Station. In addition to his interesting wardrobe tastes, Schemer loves to collect nickels, especially from passengers who deposit them into the arcade machines. Other interests include a sizable comb collection. Schemer lives at home with his mother, and is known to a least have one other sibling who lives out of town who is the parent of his nephew Schemee.

Horace Schemer is the splitting image of his grandfather, Jebediah Schemer, and is fiercely proud of one prominant trait of the Schemer bloodline, the telltale curl on the side of his head. A follower of his own "Schemer's System of Success", which often if not always lands him into trouble, Schemer does occasionally reveal a caring side of personality to his friends. Schemer's clumsiness sometimes sends him tumbling to land flat on his face, though he manages to do so without any serious injury to himself. Schemer steadfastly believes Shining Time Station to be haunted, although his fears are largely due to the occasional unseen antics of Mr. Conductor and the Jukebox Band members.
