Get to work
Walk along the tracks and find the cart with a pickaxe inside. Try pushing the cart, then pull the brake down. Start pushing the cart towards Katyusha. Hold down the left mouse button and move the cursor up until the circle underneath turns red.
Follow the instructions on the screen to break the rock.
Get back to Katyusha
Approach Katyusha who's next to the collapsed tunnel.
Inquire the train - secondary objective
To complete this objective, you need to investigate:
- the concrete structure in the tunnel,
- the passenger carriage,
- the bodies by the barrels,
- the locomotive.
Approach Katyusha and talk to her. Then, examine the fuel tank and the two dead officers.
Find the keys to the motorbike
Get on the train, go to the beginning of the carriage and examine the desk. Holding down the left mouse button, move the officer's hand to the left and press the small item on the desk. When the handle of the last drawer on the left side of the desk slides out, look inside and pick up the Black Shadow emblem.
Then, read the letter that's in the middle of the desk and insert the emblem into the hole. Hold down the left mouse button and rotate the object 45 degrees to the right. Take the keys from the secret compartment.
Give the keys to Katyusha
A cutscene will start when you leave the train. Kate will give the keys to her companion when you select any dialogue option.
Explore the rest of the train
Walk up to the green freight carriage and open the padlock with the key you still have. When the arrow icon appears on the screen, make a circle while holding down LMB to fill the arrow with orange. Then, follow the instructions on the screen and open the carriage door.
When you enter the carriage, examine the paintings against the wall.
Look closely at the painting
Examine the inscription in the lower right corner and the background of the painting.
Leave the carriage
Once you have investigated everything and looked at the painting that Katyusha found, leave the carriage.
Escape on the motorbike
Approach the motorbike, start the engine and push the lever.
