June 25, 2013 - Present

Steam Train is a series hosted by Ross on the Game Grumps channel. Originally, the show featured Ross in all episodes (with the exception of My Boyfriend 2) and usually switched between Danny and Arin, and had several series and one-offs that featured all three at once. Barry was featured in the one-off, My Boyfriend 2, under the spin-off series, Single Train and was later featured in all three Stout Train episodes, for Banished, Surgeon Simulator 2013, and Super Smash Bros.

The concept for the show comes from the fact that Ross has many Steam games that he has yet to play (according to a discussion in "The Tall Grass" and a post from Ross in the video's reddit page, he has 337 games on his Steam account, has 66 games installed on his computer, and has played around 35 of them). DOS and independently published games will also be played on the show. On the show, they play PC games instead of console games in a format identical to Game Grumps.

On June 25th, 2014, the one year anniversary of Steam Train, a new intro debuted with the first episode of King's Quest VI. The intro showed Ross driving a train as he is the only constant conductor, with Arin, Danny, Barry, and Suzy as passengers on the train. The appearances of Barry and Suzy in the new intro suggested that they could make more appearances on Steam Train. This was confirmed by Ross on reddit. Barry would make his first Steam Train appearance on Cliffhorse, and Suzy would make hers on Mount Your Friends. Starting with Peggle Nights, Steam Train started having episodes without Ross.

As of late, Danny's involvement with the show has been reduced, likely due to his commitment to both Ninja Sex Party and Starbomb.

In January of 2015, the Grumps introduced Grumpcade, the console equivalent to Steam Train. Episodes of Grumpcade are uploaded in the same time slot as Steam Train videos, meaning if a Grumpcade episode is uploaded that day, a Steam Train video won't be. Because of this, Steam Train has been uploaded much less frequently.

Theme Lyrics Edit

Danny: He bought too many games!!

Ross: Now we gotta play them all.

Danny: So all aboard the Steam Train!

Ross and his guest(s): Choo choo!

History Edit

Originally Ross conceived the idea for Steam Train as a webshow separate from Game Grumps. He recruited Danny as his co-host. Arin helped with lending equipment and giving advice from his own experience from doing Game Grumps. At this time, Jon was still doing Game Grumps with Arin. While still working out the last details of the shows concept Arin offered to bring the show on to the Game Grumps channel, an idea both Ross and Danny were in favor of. The idea then was to have Jon and Arin do Game Grumps as usual, and have Ross and Danny do Steam Train. Ross and Danny recorded at least one session of episodes (including Castle Crashers and probably several unreleased episodes of other series either scrapped of redone later) before Jon left Game Grumps. Arin then asked Danny to do both Game Grumps and Steam Train which he agreed to do. Arin later joined Steam Train to relieve Danny half of the work, as he had commitments with his band Ninja Sex Party. On June 25th a new Steam Train intro debuted with King's Quest VI on the series' one year anniversary. It showed all the five grumps reflecting a change in the show were Ross is the constant conductor with either Danny, Arin, Barry or Suzy joining him. On November 28th, Brian was added to the intro to coincide with his first appearance as a Conductor on Impossible Creatures.

  • There is an animation error in the (new) Steam Train intro. At the very beginning, before "He bought too many games," you can catch a glimpse of the passengers. The first two passengers are Danny and Suzy. However, later on when we get the long shot of the train, the second passenger is Arin.
  • The series' game footage was originally recorded with FRAPS. However, due to issues with various games, the Conductors have since switched to a setup with separate machines for playing the game and recording.
  • Steam Train was originally planned to be a show separate to Game Grumps. Ross and Danny got a lot of help from Arin to make the show come to life and he suggested that Steam Train should be an addition to Game Grumps. Steam Train was then planned to become an addition to Game Grumps during Jon's run on the series. Arin and Jon doing Game Grumps, and Ross and Danny doing Steam Train. Evidence was given by Ross on a commercial he posted on his channel. The video is now unlisted, but can be found here.
