Iron Horse is an achievement/trophy in Alan Wake.

Achievement Description


  • "Encounter a steam engine".


  • "You made the train engine run out of steam".


Towards the end of the ghost town in Episode 3: Ransom, Alan needs a key to enter a house. Wreckage of an old stream train will rise up as a poltergeist and try and kill Alan. Alan can grab this key, found in the shack and enter the house, avoiding the battle, but instead Alan can fight the two steam train sections. The best strategy is to put as much light on the pair of them while using the rock and the post as cover. Alan can also hide in the shack where he found the key since he can't be attacked there.
