Yes that is how train robberies should work

Best train robbery method:

 

Jump on the train just prior to it going into the long tunnel above O'Creagh's Run

 

Take control and drive train all the way into the tunnel

 

Kill guards 

 

Rob passengers, then kill passengers and loot them

 

Blow safes and grab bill stacks (will alert law)

 

Escape before lawmen arrive and you won't get a bounty. Should net close to $500 per robbery after selling all items to Fence

 

and grab the Miners hat, it helps see in the tunnel.

I've been wanting to try this for quite some time. Sounds like a great experience. Didn't know about the miner's hat.

Will play the game in a few hours to try this.

Lawmen can't get into the tunnel - so you can take your merry time even if they start investigating, they end up losing interest and leave you alone.  So once the coast is clear you can then just reverse the train back.  Don't go all the way to Annesburg though.... they notice you then :D

The last time I tried to rob a train, I did it in the tunnel as I've done many times before, but when I went to rob the passengers after stopping the train, they had all disappeared.  I'm running 1.0. This is the first time I'd tried to rob the train after downgrading. Not sure if it was just a fluke or what

It won’t be anywhere close to $500. More like $150

I got to be doing something wrong then, usually I can only rob around 8 ppl max, the others just either disappear or run out...

If you're lucky there'll be eight people in the two upper class cars (they have more money) and a few in the coach class, you gotta get the two safes, loot all the guards, get all the money from the chest,  kill all the passengers for extra cash

Still nowhere near $400-500. Looting, robbing the passengers, guards will net me about $100.

I know Ive kept a head count of how many people are in the cars before we leave Annesburg, and sometimes there are less by the time we get to the tunnel, game probably despawns some of em when you aint looking

I think so, also I must do a proper tunnel robbery, where everyone stays  on the coach...

I just wish money was more useful in this game. I always have over $2,000 on me casually. I wish we could buy and customize wagons to store more pelts, or finance stables around the map to store more horse. It would be cool if you could buy dogs too, they could track animals for you or simple stay at camp. You could train them and bond with them like you do with horses.

No need to get on the train at Annesburg, wait for the train right outside the tunnel and jump on from your horse.

 

I don't bother with freight trains anymore, passenger trains should have 5 to 8 people per car, you're doing something wrong if your only getting 150 in cash.

 

Make sure you don't shoot the engineer, just hit the Y button when the drive the train prompt appears. I believe shooting the engineer will cause passengers to flee. Seems like I did that once....

 

I spent the better part of a day grinding out train robberies, early in my game, netted almost $15 k and never had to worry about cash again.

Playing in post epilogue and credits open world.  Decided to top up funds with tunnel train robbery but wait for a lot of game hours at tunnel entrance and not a single train in either direction, I didn’t realise Southern Rail (a UK network) had a franchise in Grizzlies East 😀

After a dozen train robs, I realized it's not worth the effort to rob trains for a couple hundred bucks.  It can be a fun activity though.

 

I did pretty much what the main thread is saying... 

  1. Get any train from anywhere to Annesburg
  2. Hop off then get back on to trigger it to leave
  3. Rooftop walk to front car, wait until long tunnel is ALMOST in view
  4. Stop train outside of long tunnel
  5. Watch all the guards hop off to get to you
  6. Drive the train deep into the tunnel and you'll only be left with 1 guard, ha
  7. Equip the Miner's Cap, pop the guard
  8. Dynamite Safes, rob people
  9. Then DRIVE the train just north of Valentine, past Cumberland Falls*
  10. Hop off and run down to cross the river
    If you're lucky and did the one-guard-tunnel technique above, NO BOUNTY!
    If you aren't lucky, Marshals will appear, however they can't cross into New Hanover because the crime was committed in Ambarino.  You can actually hear them cursing they can't cross, haha
  11. Fetch your horse at Valentine's Stable*
  12. Hop a train to Annesburg, repeat...

* I do this because your horse doesn't want to follow you into the tunnel or just gets lost or killed trying to follow the train.
