Pouring Forth Oil – IV Walkthrough
Arthur Morgan (you) arrives to find Sean Mcguire shooting bottles at the rendez-vous point, and Sean tries to convince you to take him on the mission at hand. You both get rest until nightfall and that's when John Marston and Charles Smith arrive. John is hesitant but finally let's him in on the score, and they all ride out on the oil wagon. Dialogue between everyone on the journey reveals their relationship with Sean.
Once you arrive, you'll park the wagon on the tracks and stand atop it while everyone else hides. When the train stops, Sean will beat the conductor that comes down and John will take care of the next. After this, get on the passenger cart and help John rob the people on board. Some will be hesitant to hand over their valuables, and it's up to you to beat it out of them. You do this a few times through two different compartments before going to check on Sean, who's supposed to be looting the baggage compartment.
You see him only just arriving at the baggage compartment before being jumped by a guard. Use your Dead-Eye to take that guard out, then turn your attention to his backup, 1 on the roof of the cart, the other 2 emerge behind him. Once they've been dealt with, you tell Sean to retreat and instead, you look through the compartment. There are a total of 4 points you can loot for a assortment of items.
I Fought the Law
Once you do, you'll get a warning from Sean about two incoming lawmen. Seeing as there are just two, you're confident in taking them out. But as your luck would have it, more start emerging from everywhere and it's time to take a stand. Kill all the lawmen in front of you and a second wave will appear from the behind. Once you defeat that second wave, get on your horse and ride away from the law enforcement.
It shouldn't take too long to evade them and once you do, a cutscene will show you raise your concerns about the timing of the dispatch before splitting the score and sending everyone their separate way.
