The Central Union Railroad is a construction site of train tracks being built that meet up near Emerald Ranch. Due to complications of the men that own the land, construction of the railroad has halted. By 1907 however, the track is finished.
Events of Red Dead Redemption 2
In 1899, the construction is at a halt. The Foreman of the camp, Percy Whitsickle enlists Arthur to help find a thief amongst the workers who has been stealing wages. After that, Whitsickle will ask him to deal with a group of thugs working for Leviticus Cornwall. Once both tasks have been completed, construction will resume.
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.
