Alice: Madness Returns Edit
The train was built by the March Hare and the Dormouse after they betrayed the Mad Hatter and took over his domain, replacing the more innocent train which resided over the Looking Glass Line. Many of Wonderland's residents are terrified of this monstrous train, no doubt because of all the trouble it brings.
The Dollmaker rides in this train mainly to destroy whatever is left of Wonderland and hunts down the Insane Children. It is only until Alice defeats the Dollmaker and kills his real world counterpart, Dr. Angus Bumby, that the train is destroyed. The destruction of the train marks the end of the destruction of Wonderland, but as the Cheshire Cat remarks "Our Wonderland, though damaged, is safe in memory - for now" implying, that the damages the train inflicted in Wonderland are permanent.
- Interestingly, the Infernal Train has the symbol of the Greek Titan Chronus on the floor right before the actual boss fight.
- In early designs, the train was supposed to be a much larger stage instead of the simple line of dialogues, and was also supposed to be more mechanical and steampunk, similar to the hatter's domains in idea, but set apart in design to be more "train-like" according to the concept art.
- A quote from the artbook states: "Being the second episode in the game series, we wanted Madness Returns to borrow certain elements from Through the Looking glass, including the train line[...]"
- "[...]To the left is an early image of what the interior might have possibly looked like, when it was a much bigger level. We tried our best so separate the motifs and themes of the train from the Hatter's Domains."
