Red Dead Redemption 2 players blown away by discovery of a ghost train

Red Dead Redemption 2 players blown away by discovery of a ghost train

Is there a Wild West version of the Ghostbusters?

A player has taken to Reddit to celebrate them "finally" seeing the ghost train in Red Dead Redemption 2. It's the game that keeps on giving, with new hidden details popping up every few weeks.

A vide shows the player riding alongside train tracks out in the wilderness when a train begins its approach. The only thing is, this train is practically invisible. It's the merest suggestion of a train, a spectral vision gliding smoothly along the tracks.

While it seems some were aware of the ghost train, many others have been taken by surprise. "WTF!?" is one simple reply to the footage, while another succinctly says "The hell?"

RDR 2 is known for these little touches here and there, much like Grand Theft Auto. Someone replying to the original post expressed a love for the small details, "RDR 2 had ghosts, the night folk, a UFO. Even a goddamn vampire." Another comment agrees, "5 years later I'm still learning new stuff about this game."

Apparently, this is a "super rare" occurrence, though one Redditor claims they saw it "before the tunnel at Cornwall oil and kerosene" so if you want to try and spot it for yourself, you can start the search there.

Rockstar have been known for some time to put easter eggs within their games. GTA: San Andreas was constantly in the rumour mill because players heard about bigfoot from their brother's girlfriend's cousins friend. A reply in to the Reddit post says, "if I didn't know there is a ghost train, I would think it is a bug and the train is missing proper textures."

I have to wonder if we'll still be seeing these details in another five years. Games receive many patches and these tiny details could be added at any point, simply to string players along or offer more reason to revisit a game.
