This is the very first appearance of a Phantom Train (originally translated as Ghost Train on the US SNES release), one which would inspire references in later games and remakes. It appears as a location which serves as the carrier of dead souls over to the afterlife. Despite being a train, it is very much alive and actually talks during the game. The playable characters get stuck there and have to fight their way out. Once they have escaped, the Phantom Train itself attacks them in a boss battle.
