  1. Head to the H icon in Ron Alternates Wind Farm after you’ve completed the heist plan with the crew to begin the mission.
  2. Take out the Workers - Once you’ve arrived, take out the railway workers, then go into the signal box and change the tracks.
  3. Pickup Freight Engine - Switch over to Trevor and pickup the freight engine with the helicopter.
  4. Store the Freight Engine - Take the Freight engine to Trevor’s Airship, then go back and steal the flatbed carriage to complete the mission.

Gold Medal Requirements: (Sidetracked)

  1. Time - Complete within 04:30.
  2. Undetected - Steal the train without being detected.
Time

Picking up the engines takes some time so just do your best. Try not to rush as you are more likely to make mistakes. Be patient and take your time.

Undetected

When you arrive make sure to sneak up and stealth takedown the workers there. They are quite busy so you shouldn’t have many problems. There are only two of them, one on the ground and one in the tower.

Quick Mission Guide (Driller)

  1. Head to the H icon in LA MESA after you’ve completed the heist plan with the crew to begin the mission.
  2. Steal the Driller - Once you’ve arrived at the location, steal the truck with the driller, then lose the cops before storing it in the parking lot to complete the mission.

Gold Medal Requirements: (Driller)

  1. Mission Time - Complete within 05:00.
  2. Sneak Thief - Steal the Cutter without being detected.
Mission Time

It is faster to shoot them than sneak but either way, you should still have enough time.

Sneak Thief

Run up to the guard outside and use a stealth takedown on him before he starts shooting. Move up and take out the next one with a stealth attack too. There is another worker to the left of him and another one just in front of him.

A guy is off near the digger on the transport. Walk past there to kill the last guard stood at the back entrance to the site. You can always shoot them with a suppressed pistol if you don’t feel like sneaking. There are two workers stood near a building behind where the guard was. The last guy is stood near the Driller itself so punch or shoot him and hop in the truck..
