|~ The Trainman to Neo|
The Trainman was the most loyal servant to the Merovingian from The Matrix trilogy who appeared as a minor antagonist in The Matrix Revolutions. He was tasked with transporting programs from the machine world to the Matrix when they seek exile.
He was portrayed by Bruce Spence, who also played the Mouth of Sauron in the extended version of The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King, another third installment released in 2003.
As Neo was trapped in a train station that serves as a bridge between the Matrix and Machine World, Morpheus, Trinity, and Seraph enter the subway system in search of the Trainman, having learned from the Oracle that they need to find the Trainman before he finds Neo. However, he eludes them on foot and shoots at them to buy enough time for his escape. Neo tries to board the Trainman's subway when it pulls in, but the Trainman denies him entry and knocks him back hard enough to smash a hole in the wall, as the Merovingian wants Neo to remain in the station as revenge for losing the Keymaker.
Fortunately, Morpheus, Trinity, and Seraph manage to confront Merovingian in Club Hel, where the Trainman is forced to witness the trio holding his boss at gunpoint, threatening to kill him if he doesn't release Neo. Having no choice, the Merovingian obliges and the Trainman is forced to give Morpheus and Trinity a ride into the construct so they can rescue Neo.
It is unknown what happened to the Trainman afterwards, though it may be presumed that he and the other exile programs were assimilated by Agent Smith during the latter's takeover of the Matrix, which was implied when Smith commented to a small girl named Sati about being the last exile program to finish off.
The Trainman is very aggressive and loyal to the Merovingian. He believes that he is God at the station.
