All Aboard and Steamer are the placeholder names of two male Earth ponies who work as Friendship Express train conductors. They are officially unnamed, being referred to simply by the respective titles Conductor and Train Conductor each in credits and one in Gameloft's mobile game.


Designs

"All Aboard" has a pale blue coat, dark gray mane and tail, gold eyes, and a cutie mark of a pocket watch. He resembles "Brindle Young".

"Steamer" has a light brown coat, usually brown and light brown mane and tail, gold eyes, and a cutie mark of either a train whistle or a guitar.

Depiction in the series and film

Though the Friendship Express train debuts in the My Little Pony Friendship is Magic season one episode Over a Barrel,[note 1] the usual Friendship Express conductors are not shown until season two's introduction of the common design for the train. "Steamer" is present in all five versions of the animated sequence for the remastered My Little Pony theme song, appearing in this sequence even earlier than his first appearance in the series proper.
