Starting Location: Colter, Ambarino
Its finally time to pull off a train robbery! Follow Dutch and his gang on a long, conversation filled ride to the heist.
Eventually you’ll reach a cliff overlooking the tracks where Bill Williamson is planting explosives on the track.
Check on Bill
Dutch wants you to go down and check on Bill’s progress with setting the charges. He asks for some help setting the detonator and running the wires for the explosives. Grab the spool of wire and walk towards the detonator, and when you’re close enough, connect the wire to the detonator when prompted.
Bill then sends you back to the group, saying he has it from there. Making a note of his famous last words, return to Dutch to trigger a cinematic.
Jump on the Train
Looks like Bill is bad at demolitions, so it’s time for plan B. Get off your horse and follow Charlie and Lenny up the path to the cliff above the other end of the tunnel. Jump down as soon as you get to the edge, to land on the roof of the train. You’ll quickly look back to see that Charlie didn’t make it, and Lenny is hanging for dear life right in front of you!
- GOLD MEDAL: Save Lenny when he is hanging from the train
Quickly move to Lenny and grab him, hammering the pull button as quickly as you can to get him up onto the roof of the train.
Stop the Train
Proceed forward, and watch out for guards on the train.
- GOLD MEDAL: Take no damage during the shootout
- GOLD MEDAL: Get 10 headshots
- GOLD MEDAL: Complete the mission without taking any health items
Be cautious. There are no time limits so don’t be afraid to stay in cover, but not so long that the enemies manage to destroy the cover you’re behind. You cannot use any health items throughout the entire mission, which is made easier by the fact that during the shootout you can’t take any damage at all in order to pass the gold medal requirement.
Line up headshots wherever possible without putting yourself in danger. Once you reach the blue container car two cars behind the engine, be careful as there is one last guard who will climb up and shoot you, potentially foiling your perfect run.
Once you reach the engine, you’ll catch up with Lennie, who has gotten himself into a bit of a jam. Go into Dead Eye mode, and tag the head of the person holding him as a human shield. When you fire, Lenny will be safe.
Arthur will start pulling levers, and luckily is able to stop the train!
Eliminate the Guards
- GOLD MEDAL: After stopping the train, take out the guards within 1 minute 30 seconds
Once the train is stopped, you only have 90 seconds to eliminate the last remaining guards that are late to the firefight for some reason, so move quickly!
Wake ‘Em Up a Little
Dutch and the group will gather around the private car on the train, the main target of your train heist. When diplomacy fails, Dutch orders you top open fire on the private car , and when that doesn’t work, he asks you to place some dynamite and blast the door open!
Search the inside of the car for items, then when you’re ready to proceed search the lockbox in the bottom of the cabinet to find a whack of bearer bonds who have just met their new bearer.
Dutch leaves the fate of the guards in your hands, so kill or spare depending on your morality.
Get to the Engine Car and Start the Train
Run to the front of the train to find the Engine. Climb up and interact with the engine to start the train, and you’ll start a cinematic where you jump off to leave the train to its fate, ending the mission.
This finishes Who the Hell is Leviticus Cornwall? main mission in Red Dead Redemption 2. Now the next quest Eastward Bound starts.
