Cerebus, also known as The Nightmare Train, is the main antagonist of the 2011 remake of Watty Piper's The Little Engine that Could.


The Nightmare Train is a large, scary, creepy, villainous, black anthropomorphic 0-6-4 tenderless steam locomotive with three smokestacks, pulling a train of three old rickety boxcars and finally one old rickety caboose. As soon as he had the toys and the real boy in his possession, his appearance changes into a more frightening form with his cowcatch forming his mouth and other bestial features like his whistle and pistons.
