Mt Corel railway2

Mt. Corel.

Mt. Corel is a location in Final Fantasy VII. It is a mountain that divides the area around Costa del Sol from the rest of the Western Continent. The town of North Corel is located just at the foot of the mountain. There is also a Mako Reactor on the mountain. The mountain can be traveled via long abandoned stretches of an abandoned railroad system.

Cloud Strife and his party cross the mountain during their search for Sephiroth. Later Shinra Electric Power Company tries to transport a Huge Materia out of the Mt. Corel Reactor, only to have their train captured by Cloud's party, now temporarily led by Cid Highwind. Depending on the player's actions, the town of North Corel can be saved or destroyed.

Mt. Corel is also seen in a flashback sequence when Barret tells the story how he lost his friend Dyne and what happened to his home town.

Stopping the trainEdit

On disc 2, Cid Highwind and his party come to North Corel to stop Shinra from transporting the Huge Materia from the Mako Reactor to the town of North Corel. Cid must catch the Shinra train within a time limit. At first, the player must pursue the train by alternating between the levers and after catching up up, Cid jumps over to Shinra's train. Each wagon is defended by a fixed enemy encounter (see Enemy Formations section). After making it to the front of the train the player must stop the train by entering a button combination three times.

Upon arriving at North Corel, depending on how well the player performed different outcomes are possible:

  • If the train was stopped the player receives the Huge Materia and the Ultima Materia for free.
  • If the player caught the Shinra train, but failed to stop it they won't receive the Huge Materia and must pay 50,000 gil for the Ultima Materia.
  • If the player didn't catch the Shinra train, the Huge Materia and Ultima Materia are both lost.

After the events the player can rest in the inn and and go into the building on the left, speak to the woman with the green hat and to get Barret's final Limit Break, Catastrophe.


On the train tracks themselves the player can find:

In a cave to the left of the screen that is right before entering the screen to the rope bridge, the player can find the following items:

Near the Mako Reactor the player can battle Bagnadranas and steal the Diamond Pin weapon for Red XIII and morph them into Guard Sources, rare items that raise a character's Vitality stat.
