Events of Red Dead Redemption 2

First Encounter

In 1899, the construction is at a halt. The foreman of the site, Percy Whitsickle, enlists Arthur to help find a thief among the workers who's been stealing wages. Arthur discovers that the junior foreman named Randal was stealing the worker wages and hid it in a tree. The player can let Randal go, kill Randal or bring Randal back to camp.

Second Encounter

After that, the camp has moved but progress is halted due to a group of thugs working for Leviticus Cornwall. Whitsickle asks Arthur for help dealing with them. Once the task has been completed, construction will resume.

Third Encounter

Arthur can find that the camp has moved quite far north and the track is nearly done. Whitsickle informs the player of this and offers them anything they wish from the supply tent.


By 1907, the railroad has been completed and any remains of the camp are gone. Despite its completion, no trains can be seen using the track at that point.


The site consists of camps for workers, tool supplies, and the unfinished track. Workers can be seen hacking away at the uncompleted railroad.


  • All the workers are of Cantonese descent, which is a possible nod to the Chinese immigrants who worked and built the First Transcontinental Railroad.
  • Even though the workers are holding pickaxes, they are still armed and will fire at the player if they cause a disturbance.
  • During the Epilogue, Susan Grimshaw's grave can be found located at the top of a cliff, west of the camp.
  • During the second encounter, if the player attacks Cornwall's men before going to the foreman, they will have in their possession the Schofield Revolver on the condition that the Scholfield has been acquired and not the Volcanic. If the volcanic has been obtained, they will have the Volcanic Pistol in their possession.
