You take the cheese to an area on the right side of the map - about midway - it has rocks in front of the way in - so you need to blow it up. Inside the area there are 2 cave like things and a place to dig. If you put the cheese here you will see right away that it is the right place. If you found another place to put it nothing happens.

fletchipoo January 18, 2010 1:00 PM

I am in Ogdenville, and I have done everything in the walkthrough to get the river clean. I have only found 9 waste barrels and have blown up all of the trash in the river and i still can't get past it. Does anyone have pics of where all the barrels are located?

sanfaconbp January 18, 2010 1:30 PM


Not a picture, but I got this from Sandlot games:

o 2 in pond by pit entrance
o 2 east side of river
go to sw area, build bridge to center
o 1 across bridge
o 1 at bottom of ramp
o 1 in upward river
o 1 in center river of bridges
o 1 by factories, in front of wheelbarrow
o 1 in front of mayor house, in fence

Lisa Marie January 18, 2010 5:55 PM

Help, please - I'm trying to complete the mission where you drag the requested citizen to the Hat Shop, and I'm stuck on the Sheriff ... I have a Sheriff, and I can drag her to the Hat Shop, but she is on a horse and will not enter the shop. Is there a way to take her off of the horse so I can complete this objective? Thanks in advance!!

turtle-luvr January 18, 2010 11:46 PM

I have played through as Anne and going through again. WHERE/WHEN is madhatter quest? Am I not doing something to make it start?? Am I just special? Help....above just says finish the mad hatter quest and that is Thank you...


I am in "river clean up" but I can only find 6 barrels. Does anyone have a guide to all the barrels so I can track which one I'm missing?


To specify the above comment, I'm in Brockway river cleanup.


Ok, I found it! It was behind one of the stinking bridges Ihad built. I used the space bar to rotate my view and found it!! Yeah!

sanfaconbp January 19, 2010 12:22 PM

Lisa Marie,
Do you have the newest version? 1.003? The only time I had trouble with the sheriff and the hat shop was with the older version. There is no way to get her off the horse, but it should not be a problem with the hat guy. Just take her to the hat shop and click on the building - she doesn't go in, but her hat changes. I hope that helps.

I am playing as Anne again now and it seems to me that the MadHatter does take longer to show up playing as Anne. But, he does eventually show up. I am more than half way through and he just showed up on mine. I don't think you do anything to get him to show up, it just happens. I've had him show up whether or not I have the Hat Shop yet.


Hi, I've got as far as the Repair Rail quest, but i can't build replacement rails now. There was a blacksmith there, but no icon to build new rails. I did manage to got past that level to Brockway, completed that and went back to Turner Railroad map, and a bandit blew up 3 sections of rail. I can't repair these either. Any ideas? Oh, and i'm using version 1.003. Thanks.

sanfaconbp January 19, 2010 9:11 PM

Do you have a blacksmith in your main town?


Yes, i have 2 now, as i didn't think the first one was working.

sanfaconbp January 19, 2010 9:27 PM

Does the blacksmith that you employed there have training in mining?


Hi, worked it out now, thanks.


i'm in brockway, strike a deal quest...there are two hidden items and i can only find the one on the rim of the canyon...where can i find the second item? thanks!

sanfaconbp January 20, 2010 11:20 AM


There is one item on the right side (you need to build a bridge for) and another on the left side that is blocked by rocks. When you defeat the bandits they have a dynamite so I always get this one after winning the quest - I just continue playing and then blow up the bridge and blow up the rocks to get the last item.

Hope that helps.

fletchipoo January 20, 2010 11:40 AM

Thanks sanfaconbp for the help
I am now stuck in my town trying to do the railroad repo mission. The bandits came to town and I went to talk to them, but it says to go get cheese for the female bandit, and I don't have a female bandit and it doesn't prompt for any conversation.


i am stuck on river clean up. i dont know who i need to sell them to or where to find them

Anonymous January 20, 2010 4:08 PM

Can anybody tell me where to find the large stump that I am suppose to give to the guy for the chopping contest? I have played all the way through as Henry and am trying to get the last mystery clothes and upgrade.

sanfaconbp January 20, 2010 10:23 PM


I take the cheese to them and put it down in front of him or her. It is the one that is on the right side of the tracks. Sometimes when you walk up to him he tells you he is hungry. But even if he doesn't when you bring the cheese, he will say, is that for me? and then talk to you about he is tired, etc.


Are you talking about the main town river clean up? If so, you take it to the guy that buys the cheese, pies, iron from blacksmith and the green boxes from the factories. You pay him to take them. They are in the rivers.


The large stump is next to the area that needs to be irrigated. Playing as Henry, it is at the top of the screen - to the right. Playing as Anne - it is at the top of the screen to the right.

Hope this helps.

sanfaconbp January 20, 2010 10:36 PM


I mean - playing as Anne - it is on the LEFT - playing as Henry is on the Right.



I just finished the train race, I go back to town and everyone say how happy they are and are going to check on the other towns. the two bandits leave. where the two bandits are at the top right of the town, after everyone leaves to other towns my screen freezes there. I can not get the picture of the map at the lower left of the screen to work,(all black)can not move any place.
I have gone back and played the train race 6 or 7 times now and have saved at different places but it still does not help. Any Suggestions??? thanks jana

sanfaconbp January 21, 2010 4:12 PM

do you have the newest version 1.003?

It sounds like what happened to me before I installed the new version.


I found what version I am running and it is not 1.003. do you know where I need to go to upgrade to 1.003

Thanks Jana


Thanks Sanfaconbp, got er done. Now can you help with the last clothing? I have the indian one. Thanks JIguest

ananeimmimi January 22, 2010 1:55 AM

I have built a bakery and have Anne employed there but she has never ask for any apples. Is there something I need to do before she will ask for apples?

sanfaconbp January 22, 2010 2:25 AM

You're welcome - Yes, the last clothing -

you get it when the happiness of the town is at or above 200.

Sometimes the baker asks for the apples, but I have noticed sometimes she doesn't. Either way you will get the pies if you have someone skilled in farming pick up the apples.

sanfaconbp January 22, 2010 2:28 AM

Who did you get the game through? Whoever it is they will have the updated version. They can explain to you how to do it - but, it is basically you uninstall the one you have and install the new one. Your new one will have all the saved information from the old one on it. - I had to start my game over again though because the one I had saved was still frozen at the same place. I hope you won't have to do that.


OK, I might have missed the answer in previous posts, but I didn't want to spend the time scrolling through 5 pages to maybe find the answer. I have 35 residents in the main town and cannot seem to acquire any more. I built a couple new buildings, and have upgraded my houses and farms, but no new people are showing up. What is the max number of people you can have? Am I at my limit? If not, what do I have to do to get more?


Lainey -

What you need is to build a city hall and staff it with a mayor, otherwise you can't get any more people. The absolute maximum population is, I believe, 45.


Thanks grinnyp! Getting me a town hall and mayor now.


That worked.... Thanks for your help... I got to finish the game

Thanks again


I can't figure out what to do with the Rat Chest. I've put cheese in various places around it, I've killed rats. I haven't seen anything about it and I did go through all 5 pages though very quickly.

sanfaconbp January 23, 2010 8:40 PM

Are you playing as Henry or Anne? The place where the rat lives is in a different place since the maps are different.

In each game there is a special rock that has a little "cave" like entrance. You place the cheese at the entrance. The little rat comes out and gets on the cheese. The cheese disappears. You do this 3 times. The 3rd time the rat is too big to go back into the hole in the rock and the remark is made that he is wearing a key. The rat then is listed as one of the "guns" on the bottom left circle (top left). You don't want to kill him until you find the rat treasure.

I hope that helps.


Sandbox mode--Railroad Challenge--I cannot get the 6th Train Good (Bakery). I have put every skilled farmer/rancher to work in the Bakery and I still cannot unlock it. What am I doing wrong? I keep failing this level. HELP PLEASE!!

sanfaconbp January 24, 2010 6:32 AM

Some people have said that if you get the baker herself (with the farmer skill) to pick up the apples, then she will make the pies. I'm going to try that myself. It does seem this is different somewhat from the main game.
They do discuss this on the Sandlot site.
Hope this helps.


I have just finished the Great Train Race and am back home. There is a Jesse Luthor standing near the train station with a yellow circle under his feet. Who is he and what do I do with him? Thanks!


im stuck on the bandit quest. it wont let me use the dynamite on the rocks.

sanfaconbp January 25, 2010 3:31 PM

K R Lang,
He may be the guy who will handle the train robberies and rail problems for you from now on if you want him to. (He comes as a result of upgrading the track.) When you have one of those things happen he will get a ! over his head and offer to handle it for you for a price. You can say yes or no. If you have not received your trophy for doing the railway problems you might want to say no so that you can get your trophy. He will always have the yellow circle under his feet because he is not a moveable character.

Does it let you put the dynamite down in the green zone or does it just give you a red zone? Is this in the quests where you defend the engine and repair the tracks?


Can someone please tell me how to rotate the scene? I have tried everything and even went through the tutorials again and I can't figure it out. Thank you.

sanfaconbp January 26, 2010 12:41 AM

Push the space bar down and move your mouse.


I found out something cool about the park,

if you click on it you'll get a birdbath,a gnome,a flamingo and bench


Hi, I need advice on winning TIMELY ARRIVAL - in THE LAST COAL MINER MISSION. I am playing as Henry. I have read walkthroughs on 2 sites and all forum notes on 3 sites with no luck. Both walkthroughs say:

Don't start this mission until you are well prepared: bring 7 to 10 gunfighters, and all 20 health kits you can hold. As soon as you arrive on location, choose one coal mine, and focus on defending that one; you only need one mine. Use the normal citizens for the every day tasks.... or similar.

Problem is: I can't BRING lawmen with me. They show up singly at the train depot. I've tried 3 times now and tried defending just one coal mine. But the bandits show up so fast that the lawmen die and I can't get any needed supplies going fast enough to build much before the last coal mine is destroyed. I've tried building the doc's building first to have health kits and a house to have extra workers for a lumber camp or gold, but by the time I've built those, I've run out of lumber to build a lumber camp. The walkthrough is not helping. I'd appreciate advice. Thank you

sanfaconbp January 26, 2010 3:09 PM

What I do is make sure I have the max in health kits and the gun upgrades when I start the quest.
I have never been able to bring any gunfighters with me either.
So, I have one guy working the coal part of the train. The other one I send out getting gold, coal, wood, food, etc.
I keep both coal mines going. I upgrade the guns on both the sheriff and the one gunslinger I start with. I put one at each of the coal mines and go hire the 2 that are sitting at the table. I upgrade both of them and put one at each of the coal mines.
I then build a general store and hire the guy that I have getting everything. I keep him there long enough to get dynamite to blow up the rocks to get to the gunslingers in there. I hire them as soon as I can and get another dynamite for the dog. I upgrade them and put them at each of the coal mines.
As each gunslinger comes into town, I do the same upgrade their gun and put them at one of the coal mines. I put some of the gunslingers on the path in front of the coal mines as they seem to come from that direction sometimes too. I use the health kits as needed and fish if needed.
I fire the guy at the general store and get him fishing or whatever I need him to do.
I have never had to give up one coal mine, but I can see that might be a good way to go.
Good luck.
I hope this helps.



Thank you very much for your quick answer and great advice! I was thrown off by what the walkthroughs said and thought I was missing something. Now I know to just try harder. It was frustrating because I seemed to have no time to look around for resources, and I panic when I'm being attacked and lose any sense I have, plus thinking I was doing something wrong. I'm off to give it another shot... pun intended. Thanks again.


Like stumped, I canot seem to complete Railroad bypass. I have plenty of lumber gold & food. I have 8 people, a coal mine, lumber shack god mine farm blacksmith & store. I collected the hidden item. I completed the track & killed all the bandits. The bounty hunter got killed so I built a jail & hired a sheriff & deputy to kill the bandits.
In the quest info area it says that the bandit stuff is complete. It says I have completed the add track segment. Then it says I still need to complete the track. It also says I should use irrigation & dynamite to level the terrain (which I already did in order to build the track). I dynamited the boulders on either side of the damaged track in case I needed to repair it, but it will not allow me to repair it or blow it up & replace it.
This is getting VERY frustrating! Does anyone have any ideas?


i am stuck on the hostage quest i have dynamite just wont let me put it down near the rocks.


I am stuck on wring sideI did everythin I had to but the lady with the upgraded house won't move she keeps saking the tree isn't close enough i can't put it any closer. even tried dinamite and the grading tool still nothing can any one help

sanfaconbp January 29, 2010 10:10 AM

I think the secret to this is to plant the tree in front of the very first house you upgrade before she starts talking. It seems once she starts talking that it is hard to get it where she wants it. There is a discussion on this at Sandlot games.

I have found if you place it as close as you can to the rocks, it will usually be okay. It may look like it is too far away, but I would try it and see. If it needs the special dynamite, it should still let you put it down, it just won't blow it up. I don't know if that answers your question or not. I hope it helps.

Is the game saying that you have not completed the tasks AND not giving you the recap - or does the recap show you have not finished everything?

I went back to this and tried to blow up the rocks and fix the railroad track - it doesn't let me do it either. I can blow up the rocks, but not fix the track or lay down a new one. I know they want us to lay down the new track where the red arrows are.

It still showed me that I had completed the tasks. All the lines listing what needed to be done had checkmarks on it. Does yours show some of the checkmarks only?


RE Railway bypass problem-Thanks for the reply. I am not sure what the "recap" is.
When in the game & in the railroad bypass quest, and I click on the quill pen at the top, I get to a page which tells me what needs doing in the quest.
This is what it says:
Rainlroad bypass is not checked off.
Bandit bounty and Feed the lumberjack are checked off and marked completed.
At the bottom, under "Bypass the bandits by building the rail road around them-
Complete building thhe track segment to join the rails in unchecked.
Build a railroad track segment is checked off.
Use Dynamite to blow up rocks and trees. Irrigate the rocky land with irrigation tool is unchecked.
Keep in mind I HAVE joined the tracks by dynamiting & irrigating and then building the tracks (where the red arrows show you).
Hero is now standing around (the girl) and the workers keep working. No trains have come thru, but the tracks are complete. Don't know what else to do. Do I need to starrt the whole quest over?
Thanks again.

sanfaconbp January 29, 2010 10:07 PM

It sounds to me like you have done everything needed. I think I would start the quest again. There is no ? or ! anywhere on anyone's head? If there isn't I can't imagine why it is not checking off what you have done.
What I meant by recap is when you finish a quest, they show a overview of what you did and show how many hidden objects there are and how many you found as well as other information. I thought maybe that would show that you had completed the quest even though the quest information on the map was not up to date.


I looked through everything but haven't seen an answer to how to fix the house that's covered by a tree. Tried a woodcutter and a buffalo. Any suggestions? Thanks.


I just bought the 3 Dynamites to end the game- Where are they???? I cannot find them to place on the tracks- HELP!!!


I am close to finishing the game. I bought the 3 large dynamite. Where are they? I cannot find them to place them- HELP!


Can you please help with the last quest in the market. I cant manage to get 5 people before time runs out. Can you tell me step by step on how to complete it? thanks


How do I accomplish the task- Will work for skills???? I have a red X where that is listed.


I need the banana leaf hat and have four farms with four different crops growing--but still no hat. Where did I go wrong and how do I get that hat? Is there a crop I'm missing? Also, I have all the animals at the ranches, but I still didn't get the trophy. What am I missing with that and the farm trophy too?


Im on hostage rescue where there are the different colored doors. On the main screen a large tree is just right of where you kill the "king". It is marked as a green dot on your small map. What's the deal?


I am on Landlord Loopholes. It says that I have 19 of 20 dynamite. I have blown up every rock, picked every berry bush, blown up all bushes (non berry producing) rotated my camera all over the whole map. I cannot find the last dynamite. Please help.


I am trying to get the clock tower. I have a skilled miner at the blacksmith as well as at my last coal mine (which I was saving) My blacksmith has never left iron. What am I doing wrong?


My blacksmith shop is upgraded for pickaxes as well, I'm just worried that my time at the coal mine is going to run out.

sanfaconbp February 3, 2010 8:18 AM

To help the guy with the tree in front of his house you use dynamite to blow up the tree.

The special dynamite are at the blacksmith shop.

The work for skills quest is a guy shows up and asks to work at a farm and at a coal mine. You put him at one and after awhile he says he has learned everything there and wants to go to the other. After he finishes learning about that, the quest is over. You do have to have a house for him to live in so he will stay that long.

sanfaconbp February 3, 2010 8:30 AM

How I do that last quest is:

The first thing 35 food. I have the girl and guy each build a storage building and then a house. I have the hero do a storage building and then get all three working getting food - berries and fishing. That way by the time I get the 35 food, I also am on my way to getting 6 people as well. When the new 4 get there I start them getting wood, coal and money - when they leave, I still have one person to work and get him doing whatever is next. (You can find out what is next by saving the game on a separate line as soon as you have the amount of whatever you are collecting - then resume - go to the ! and click okay - they will let you know what comes next - then go to load - load the game you just saved and resume. That way you can know what to collect right then.)

I hope this helps.

sanfaconbp February 3, 2010 8:39 AM

There are 5 crops. There are 4 animals.

The 5 crops are radish, tomato, corn, watermelon, peas.

The 4 animals are turkey, pig, cows, buffalo

Which ones are you missing?

sanfaconbp February 3, 2010 8:52 AM


On the hostage quest, you get the key to that door by shooting the tent in that area. Maybe that is why you see that dot on your map.

For landlord loopholes - there is a picture showing all of them under the quests at Sandlot games site - the ones that I had the hardest time finding were - the one at the top of the screen on the left hand side - behind the square X that shows the boundary line AND the one in the water underneath the little flowers.

Is your blacksmith shop upgraded for both? Is he skilled in mining and woodcutting? Do you have a miner skilled in mining at your coal mine? You also need to have 3 factories with workers to get this to start. If you have all this - I would build another blacksmith shop as well as the first one and hire another blacksmith that is skilled and see if that one will produce the iron.

I hope this helps.


Can anyone tell me how to upgrade my train yard and where it is. Thank you

sanfaconbp February 4, 2010 7:43 AM

You will need to purchase it first from the store at the top of the screen (under upgrades, I believe).
Then click on the side of the railroad yard that has the guy putting coal in. It is on the second row on the right.

sandradee February 4, 2010 5:21 PM

I am stuck on the bandit tutorial. I have 59 coal, but I cannot get anymore. It says I have to have 60. My guy won't work on the mine and the other guy won't talk to me yet. How do I get out of here?

sanfaconbp February 4, 2010 7:50 PM

How far along did you get? Have you picked up all the loose coal? Did it have you go to the wagon for the lost supplies yet? Have you built the coal mine?


I'm stuck at "Bridge Destroyed".
Ive got a factory, and i've got a 2 skilled person (in mining and lumber). But i don't know what to do with him.

sanfaconbp February 6, 2010 12:38 AM

If this is where you need a guy skilled in both to fix the railroad bridge, it tells you who you have that is qualified and tells you to bring him or her to the site of the destroyed bridge. When he or she gets there, they will tell you it takes 200 to fix it and do you want to proceed. If you don't know who the game asked for it is listed under quests.
I hope this helps.

Grannygamer February 7, 2010 12:15 AM

Okay, I feel like a dunce.Train Heist.Killed bandits,picked up all loose coal, have 60 coal & $14 gold, cant get to supply wagon due to fence..have tried about 12 times to get past this stage with no success. Ready to just give up on whole game. ANy help will b much appreciated will try 1 more time if u cna help me. Thanks in advance.

turtle-luvr February 7, 2010 4:26 AM

i cannot figure out what trophy I am missing. Can someone please tell me what all the mystery trophies are so I can figure it out? Thank you.


How do I get the last tropy and mystery upgrade- Thank you. Also, I cannot get the buy every building and upgrade it at least once tropy...what am I doing wrong?

sanfaconbp February 7, 2010 10:27 AM

I went back and did this again to see what could be the problem. I think maybe when you get to the guy that is hitting the coal in the rock - do you help him to that? Then afterwards when that is complete - he says that is as far as they can get because the supply wagon was suppose to come with the blueprints - the guy to the left says maybe you can go look for it - when he says that - the gate opens to the overturned wagon (to the far right).

This game is a challenge, but it is well worth it in my opinion. I love the game - I hope you will continue - Hopefully this will help. If you have any problems, I'll try to help. I've certainly needed help too.

i don't have the peas or the buffalo. i can get the peas (i think) from reading the walkthrough but i am stuck on the buffalo. where do i put the cake boxes? in the fenced area where i rescued the rustled buffalo or somewhere else? i don't remember where they grazed so i'm flying blind.
also, how do i sneak past the bandits after being captured? every time i've tried, they spot me and i end up failing the mission before i can get the guns or the others released. any suggestions as to when the best time to sneak out is would be greatly appreciated!


I'm trying to rescue Father Anne's way. I do everything in the walkthrough (I think). Anne sees the bandit and her father. They have a conversation and the train crashes.

BUT... no one comes to help and the bandit kills dad. What am I missing?

sanfaconbp February 7, 2010 2:41 PM

Yes, you take it to the grassy area where the guy with the buffalo was - it is left of the guy that you take cheese, iron, etc to to sell. It is not in the fenced area where you saved the buffalo that was stolen. You can put down a couple of the boxes of pies in the grassy area (I believe it is to the right and across the little river from the fenced in area you saved him from - Playing as Henry - Playing as Anne - it is north of the area you saved him from) and very soon the buffalo will appear. When he does then you are able to have them in your ranch.

The first sneaking past the bandit is to wait until she is in her room with the door closed, then go to the end of the hall - she will say to stop - go right all the way into the next cell (the guy bandit comes out) - go to the left corner of the cell and she will not follow you - then you can shoot it out with the guy bandit. I hope that helps. That is the only place you need to shoot it out. I make sure that my hero has a full life before I go so that he/she can fight this one fight without falling down.

I hope this helps.

grannygamer February 7, 2010 2:57 PM

sanfaconbp: Thank u for your quick response.
Yes I help him get the coal at mine unable to get any more coal anywhere.None of miners will talk to arrow just keeps pulsing over mine.nothing is said by any of just stuck there.


Thanks sanfaconbp,
But what are Gnome Parks?


Can you tell me how to get the watch tower?

Thank you

sanfaconbp February 7, 2010 7:25 PM

I believe this may be a problem for the technical department of wherever you purchased the game from.

When I walk up to the guy working at the coal in the rock - he says something - so if he doesn't on yours, it may be a technical problem.

Do you have version 1.003?

sanfaconbp February 7, 2010 7:30 PM

gnome park:

When you build a park if you hit it like you are repairing it, it will give you a fountain in the center. If you keep on, it will give you different things - one is a gnome. Keep it at the gnome and build another park & do the same thing. If you build - it is either 3 or 4 or maybe 5 parks and each one has the gnome in it - you will get this trophy.

watch tower:

You get this when you have 3 factories. A guy will show up and ask for something - he wants the iron from the blacksmith - when you take it to him, he gives you the plans for the watch tower.

sanfaconbp February 7, 2010 7:49 PM

Just Me,
I looked this up at the Sandlot game site - This is what I found:

Do you confront the bandit before the crash?

when you finally have EVERYTHING in place the train will only be triggered by you letting the bandits catch you. The quest note says something like 'confront the bandit'.

And you don't actually give a specific sign to the deputies - if I remember correctly, the big train explosion brings them back under your control.

I hope this helps.


sanfaconbp: I have version 1.003. I accidently figured it out. You cant pick anything up before you go n talk to miner in front of coal mine, I guess, because I kept retrying n when i did that it all worked. He talked n other guy talked n gate opened. So guess that is the secret. Dumb I think but, hey. Thank you so much for trying to help me.
I will undoubtedly be back. :)

I'm so glad it worked for you. And, now we know something we didn't before.


Please Please Help.....I cannot figure out how to get across the river where the buffalo are. I can get across to a little spit next to the magic fish pond, but it won't take me down the other side. I've blown up everything I can see....and it still won't let me through.

Are you at the beginning of the game? Are you able to build bridges yet?


can someone please tell me:
1) what a "mounted" bounty hunter is and where can i find him for the madhater mission, and
2) for the lumberjack mission, do i have to do something else first before i take him the specific grey log to cut it? and does anybody knows what is his name because i have 2 guests in the main town and none of them cut the log..
please help me...
i don't know what to do...
thank you!


I've done everything on my task list but I haven't been prompted for the log chopping challege and I can't carve anything. I'm at the final showdown and everyone has been gone for a LONG time. What am I missing?



For the mounted bounty hunter build a stable and then drag a bounty hunter to it. It will put him on the horse.


thank you very much, but in this time i'm stuck after the train race and i can't do anything at all. i have installed the 1.003 version but still nothing.....
is there anything i can do to avoid the restart of the game from the beginning???

Jamie & tsakilena,

Having 3 upgraded lumber camps brings the guy with the log splitting challenge.

On the Sandlot site they have discussed that this happens sometimes - they (the game designers) are still working on a solution.

You could start again from an old save or some have said if you get a notice of a track repair or train robbery you could go there and when you return it will be back where you can play again.

You could also contact Sandlot games technical division and they could answer you more specifically.

On the Sandlot site on the forum for Westward IV you could read the past discussion - maybe someone there could help.


I'm at the end, waiting for the train to come back. I THINK I positioned my lawmen correctly, but the train just ain't comin! How long do you have to wait or is there something else I have to do?

I've noticed sometimes it just takes longer for them to return than others. I haven't noticed anything triggering them returning sooner.

Gosh. I am so disappointed in this game and myself. I have been unable to get out of the main city to do anything else. Nothing hapens just same ol same ol. No challenges or side schallenges except for the Farmers market. After 2 weeks of this gave up n uninstalled. No walkthroughs helped because had no side challenges come up. :(


I'm still waiting for the train to come back. It's been a couple of hours of waiting. This can't be right. Any help out there?


im on the quest you have to find the cheese to give it to the bandits they have own tghe trainsation i have looked everywhere and still cant find it.
