Several sheets of Spirit Tracks concept art, as well as art from various other games, were leaked by a Nintendo employee on 2chan and later posted by a user on the NeoGAF Forums. As you can see below, there are several different train designs and what even appears to be a flying boat-train! Seeing this makes me want Nintendo to release more Spirit Tracks artwork to the public.

    It's nice to see what they might have put in. A boat based train collection would've been epic, though. At least we have the dessert train! I can see why they chose the final form for the spirit train, it IS more refined….

    Heheh, I found these a couple of days ago… was wondering when the big sites would notice them xDD
    But I really do wish they would release more concept art… heck, I bet they could fill a book with Zelda concept art, and the fans would surely snap it up like hotcakes… *sigh*

    But some things are better left unseen. That Tingle train engine concept is one of them… *goes off to have nightmares*

    I think they should make a sequal to spirit tracks and it should be on the wii, (oh wait a sec) and it should be wifi.

    while their at it make it the same link and zelda story and let their bond continue to grow.

    Maybe theyll do something like they did with four swords advenutres, and have a 2d story on a 3d console, that was fun, just sayin…..
