Monster Train Wiki

Train Steward is a Clanless Clan Clanless.png Unit Card in the Starter Deck. All Starter Decks begin the game with 4 of them.

If the player has Advanced Prototype, all Train Steward units gain +5Attack, +5Health, Damage Shield 2 and Multistrike 1.


The Boneshaker has little need for defense, but in the unlikely event that it does, I've designed several sentient guards to protect it from harm.


Train Steward is a filler unit in the early game, able to block damage for your important units in the early game while being able to kill backline enemies and Collectors. They quickly become irrelevant later, and are mostly just able to block a hit or two before dying (and taking up precious Capacity otherwise), and are a very high purge priority in most runs.

Suggested Upgrades[]

Upgrade Description
Upgrade Unit Monster Railspike.png Monster Railspike is only obtained through an event. It allows you to have a semi-effective unit one last time before Purging it from your deck. You should regularly try to remove Train Stewards from your deck throughout the course of the game. This Upgrade allows you to do this a little easier.

Version Changes

1.0.10 added an option to "hide player names" for people who don't want to see usernames or avatars from other players. Instead of showing their actual names and avatars everyone is a Train Steward.
1.1.2 Advanced Prototype now adds 5 attack and 5 health to Train Stewards on top of other benefits. Train Stewards now have their own subtype to fix interaction with Advanced Prototype and Spikedriver Colony.
