Mario and Parakarry by the K64.

The K64 is an 0-6-2 tank engine or an American type steam locomotive on the railroad located between Toad Town and the train station found at Mt. Rugged. It is seen in Paper Mario. In the game, Mario has to use this train engine to transport him to Mt. Rugged, which is the only way to be able to reach Dry Dry Desert. In order to get the engine going, Mario has to get rid of a rock blocking the railroad with Bombette. After this, Mario is able to ride the enigne whenever.


The K64 comes from Mario Kart 64. In Kalimari Desert, many trains looking similar to this one are found driving around the railway tracks on this course. Players must avoid hitting them when they pass by (sometimes even having to wait for it to pass by before going again) or else the player will flip out and slow down.
