Rick Siggelkow is an American producer, director and writer. He was the co-creator of Shining Time Station along with Britt Allcroft. He and Allcroft also served as co-producers and co-executive producers for Shining Time Station.

He has also worked on "The Noddy Shop" (an American spinoff of Noddy made similar to Shining Time Station), "Ace Lightning", "Dinosapien" and "Little People". He appeared in the 70 Years of Friendship YouTube documentary in 2015.

Siggelkow mentioned that during production of Shining Time Station, he disapproved of Daisy's design, which led to Daisy's stories from Series 2 not being used in that series. Furthermore, when Series 3 was in production, Daisy's role in the episode Mavis was given to Diesel. The two Daisy episodes did eventually get shown on the VHS, Daisy and Other Thomas Stories in 1993, after the show's third season ended, and the Series 4 episode Bulls Eyes aired on an episode of the spinoff series, Mr. Conductor's Thomas Tales, as Siggelkow had no involvement in the spinoff.

Allcroft and Siggelkow are currently trying to get Shining Time Station onto DVD or back on television. However, Siggelkow revealed in 2021 that Mattel had the rights for the show, and no other news regarding a DVD release for the series has been announced, so it is currently unknown if the DVD project will be completed.

After Shining Time Station he went to work with BBC Americas Worldwide, where he worked from 1996 to 2008. From January 2014 until May 2016, he worked for HiT Entertainment, where he created and produced the show "Little People".
