Butter Bridge is a railroad bridge in Red Dead Redemption in the Hennigan's Stead region of the New Austin territory.


It is a railroad bridge that crosses the San Luis River between eastern Hennigan's Stead in New Austin to Diez Coronas in Nuevo Paraíso. Trains departing from Casa Madrugada go across this bridge en route to the MacFarlane's Ranch train station.


The bridge is destroyed during the Vincente de Santa mission "Civilization at any Price", but is rebuilt after the de Santa mission "Mexican Caesar", which also ends at this location.


  • Francis Gallagher in Thieves' Landing mentions a train or wagon being raided on the bridge, or someone falling from the bridge into the river below.
  • Butter Bridge appears to have the same bug as Manteca Falls (except the following situation is reversed) where even when the player is on Mexican territory, music that would normally be heard when in New Austin will play, even though the game still recognizes that the player is in Mexico (e.g. bounties obtained in Mexico will still be present).
