The Barrel Train will appear whenever a player lands on a DK Space, replacing the train's current locomotive, which could be either Shy Guy's standard one or Bowser's Bad-Breath Express. The first player who reaches the Barrel Train will be given a Star for free.
The Barrel Train will leave either after someone reaches it, or if somebody lands on a Bowser Space.
As a Kart
The Barrel Train is Diddy Kong's unlockable kart in Mario Kart: Double Dash!!. It is a lightweight kart, but like Bowser Jr.'s kart, the Bullet Blaster, it has greater speed, but less acceleration. It is unlocked by completing the Star Cup in 150cc. It is basically considered a train off-track. Its horn is the sound of a train whistle. Like any steam train, its exhaust pipe is a smokestack.
A train which appears in Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time, bears a strong resemblance to this kart, and some fans speculate it may be based on the kart itself.. Later in Super Smash Bros. Brawl, it appears as a sticker that raises a player's attack by nineteen.
