The Phantom Train is a dungeon in the game Final Fantasy VI. It is a train that carries the dead from the real world to the "other side." Once there, they can live their deaths peacefully and away from human interference. Due to this nature, the Phantom Train contains many undead monsters. These monsters include various kinds of Ghosts. There are malevolent Ghosts who attack travelers, merchant Ghosts who sell items, and friendly ghosts who will help travelers fight through the train. It has a conductor, and it can be stopped by pulling switches in the locomotive. The locomotive is in front, followed by a small car with a Save Point in it. Behind it are the first class cabins, then a dining car where the player party can recover their health for free, then the general seating area, and finally, the caboose. The train departs from the Phantom Forest. Sabin, Cyan, and (if he is still in the player's party) Shadow accidentally board the train, and have to work their way to the front of the train to stop it so they can get off. They have to fight the engine first, however. When they get off, Cyan is anguished as he witnesses his deceased wife and son board the train. The Phantom Train does not appear, or at least is not accessible, during the World of Ruin, although a portion of Cyan's Soul contains a dungeon clearly inspired by the train.

Trouble with the audio sample?

"Phantom Train" is the theme that plays during Sabin, Cyan, and Shadow's travels on board the Train.

"Phantom Train" was included in the compilation albums Final Fantasy VI: Grand Finale, as an orchestrated version (where it was titled "Mystery Train") and the Piano Collections.
