Train is a temporary form in Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island and its remake, Yoshi's Island: Super Mario Advance 3. The Yoshis can take on this form by touching a morph bubble containing its icon. While in this form, Yoshi's snout gains a distinct red color. Trains with Yoshi's visage, similar to his Train form in Yoshi's Island, also appear in other games.

This form allows the Yoshis to move along railtracks that are drawn with chalk on walls in the background. While on the ground, the Train can only move from side to side. By standing in front of a railtrack and pressing "up" on the direction pad, the Train will shrink down and attach to the railtrack, whereafter it can start moving along it. The Train can be controlled with the direction pad and sped up by holding the button or the button on the controller. While moving on rails, Train Bandits, Shy Guy-like enemies apparently painted on the walls, come to life to attack the train, making the player briefly lose control of the train when they touch them.

The Train also makes an appearance in Mario Super Sluggers on the Yoshi Park field during the day. It moves along the northern side of the field, stunning any player that it collides with. At night, the Yoshi train is replaced by a Wiggler train.
