Dark Trains are enemies from Spirit Tracks.
They appear on the top screen on Link's map, so Link must navigate along the Spirit Tracks in a way that he can avoid the Dark Trains if at all possible. If Link drives into a Dark Train, it spells instant death for Link. Link can slow them down using the cannon of Spirit Train. Five cannon shots will stun them temporarily, and Link can use this chance to outrun them.
- Dark Trains can turn around on the tracks in order to avoid collision with other Dark or Armored Trains.
