This article is about the train. Did you mean the pilot, or the series itself?

The Infinity Train is the main setting of the series of the same name.

Description

While it appears as a regular train on the outside, it is actually of seemingly infinite length. Inside of its many boxcars, practically anything conceivable can be found, whether it be puzzles, objects, or even entire worlds. According to Owen Dennis, it is around 5 stories tall.[1] Passengers picked up by the train are processed through the Tape Car, where their memories are recorded on a video tape. They are then given a number to track their progress through the train before being sent in a special pod to one of the cars. They are unable to leave the train until their number reaches zero, upon which a door leading them home will open.

History

Very little information is provided on the train's origin and history. According to series creator Owen Dennis and supervising director Madeline Queripel, the train appears to passengers when they are at a crossroads in their life, where they could go down one path or another.

Tulip first encountered the train after she ran away from home to try to get to Game Design Camp in Oshkosh on her own. Upon trying to board, the train sucked her into the Snow Car.

Trivia

Ouroro

The proposed ouroboros-infinity insignia of the train.

  • In the early art of drawing the train, each car was supposed to be stamped with the train's insignia but was removed in the Pilot. The symbol was an Ouroboros fashioned into the infinity symbol with a waning gibbous moon above it (the moon is red and the shadow on it is black; inversely, it could also be a waxing crescent).
    • The infinity symbol is a mathematical symbol used to show the concept of infinity. The Ouroboros (a snake/serpent eating its own tail; usually drawn as a circle) is an ancient symbol used to depict continuity, cycles, and infinity.
  • In the pilot design of the train, the engine appears to have a valve gear, a typical gear that a steam locomotive has. But the train doesn't have a piston, so it is unknown if the train is either a Steam or a Diesel locomotive.
