    How to get to him:

    This guy is at the second level of the game: Glitter Gulch Mine
    To get to him you need to get mumbo's help, after you get mumbo ( he is in the top of a some rock's, just after passing Wumba's Hut ), get him and take it to the entrance of the level and go left, you will be in a cave and you will notice a big train laying on the floor, use mumbo to lift it and fix it.
    After that bring back banjo there and enter the furnace.

    How to beat it :

    You will come up with Old King Coal, but don't worry its pretty easy to kill, just stand up on one of the coal so you don't get burned when he starts to growl, and start shooting it with your eggs, grenade eggs works well on him.
    After you beat it you can use the train to go wherever you want to

    NOTE: You need that train to get some jiggy's and to get one level of the game ( Grunty Industries ).

    KillipoThe train actually isn't near the level entrance portal, but the train station portal. There is a very similar looking doorway with train tracks to the left of the level entrance, but that leads to... fuel storage, I believe?

    After having put the game down for a while and coming back, I had a harder time than I'd like to admit in finding the train station. I don't know how many times I checked the fuel storage before finally finding the right place. And it looked similar enough that I thought I had checked that door already.

    AndreFlash83U should have said: use the warp next to the entrance of the level and go to next to train station, much easier, I think u could update your solution to help people a bit better.

    Just beat up Old King Coal In Glutter Glicth Mine, He's the easiest boss in the game.
    The fastest way to kill him is grenade or ice eggs.

    Cheese TouchYou can stand in the recess where the exit door is located and go to first person to shoot him. He won't hit you at all.
