In Spirit Tracks, the Golden Train is the name given to the Spirit Train once it has been outfitted with the following Train Cars:

The Train Cars can be attached to the Spirit Train upon purchase from Linebeck Trading Company, or at any time thereafter at Alfonzo's house in Aboda Village. Used together, they give the Spirit Train a durability of eight Hearts, up from its default of four Hearts. Aside from this boost in durability, the Golden Train is merely a change in appearance to suit the player's personal tastes.

Other Appearances

Hyrule Warriors Legends

In Hyrule Warriors Legends, Golden Trains appear as an Item Card on the Grand Travels Map in Adventure Mode, although the Golden Engine is the only part visible on the card. The Grand Travels Map was not included with the Phantom Hourglass & Spirit Tracks Pack for the original Hyrule Warriors, so Golden Trains weren't introduced until the Phantom Hourglass & Spirit Tracks Pack released for Hyrule Warriors Legends.[3][4] Because Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition came with all previous DLC packs included, Golden Trains are available from the moment Adventure Mode is unlocked.[5]

In similar fashion to the other train Item Cards, Golden Trains cannot be purchased in the Item Card Shop and can only be obtained by completing a battle that has a Golden Train as its victory reward.[6] Because the Grand Travels Map is split between Spirit Tracks and Phantom Hourglass-based sections, Golden Trains only appear as victory rewards of battles to the left on the pink dividing line. When a Golden Train is used, it activates an Engine Power that causes all restrictions on Warriors to be lifted across the entire map, which means that all battles that required a certain Warrior to be used now allow any Warrior to be played.[1][7] The Engine Power provided by the Golden Train runs for two battles and cannot be overridden with another Engine or Captain Power.[8]

Golden Trains can be traded for a random delicious-type Food at the Linebeck Trading Company.[9] While searching a map space with the Linebeck Trading Company, any Item Card can be traded by selecting it.[10] After a single trade, the company will disappear from the space.[11] During a Two-for-One Sale, two delicious Food will be given instead of just one.[12]
