Grand Theft Auto is a truly massive game. Between GTA 5 and the constant updates from Rockstar for GTA Online; there’s no shortage of new content and interesting things to do.

Before we dive in; if you’re new to the channel, we do How To Guides, News and Giveaways; So consider subscribing and ringing the bell, to stay up-to-date.

Getting gold in this one is pretty straightforward if you’re good with a Skylift Helicopter; but the time limit can be a bit challenging.

…and I’ll be honest with you; it took me a few goes to hit the time constraint on this one.

So let’s pick it up from a restart, where we’re dropped in at the rail yard.

Know any neat mods we could use to do a bit more exploration in Lost Santos, or North Yankton? Leave your suggestions in the comments.

Lester will give all the protagonists a text message saying that he has an aerial crane to steal the train, one of them needs to divert the Davis Quartz train and another needs to use the Skylift to steal the train wagons and carry it to the Airfield of Sandy Shores.

Using stealth mode first to drive the two guards guarding the railroad out. Go to the cabin then and turn the train tracks to the next train to divert. The protagonist (Michael or Franklin) will call Trevor after the train has arrived and inform him that the train is ready; if Trevor is the protagonist who has diverted the train, he will call Michael. Switch to Trevor and use the Skylift magnet to snatch the cargo engine and some of the flatbed carriages and send them all to the Airfield of Sandy Shores.

Fly the helicopter straight over the carriage and parallel to it to retrieve the carriages. Click the appropriate button until it is close enough to it, and the magnet will pull it.

* Placed the carriage of the flatbed in the back of the vehicle

hi in this video we’re going through how to get gold in the gta 5 mission
sidetracked which is a prep mission for the big scores obvious approach
hi and welcome back my name’s Dan and i’m an old grumpy gamer grand theft auto is a truly massive
game between gta 5 and the constant updates from rockstar for gta online there’s no shortage of
new content and interesting things to do join me then in our continuing series getting gold
in every damn mission in gta 5 as we look at the grand theft auto mission sidetracked
before we dive in if you’re new to the channel we do how-to guides news
and giveaways so consider subscribing and ringing the bell to stay up to date
getting gold in this one is pretty straightforward if you go with the skylift helicopter but the
time limit can be a bit challenging before we get started i highly recommend you purchase a
suppressor for michael’s pistol and spend some time practicing in a skylift or a cargo bob
to get gold in this one we’ll need to divert the train undetected and complete the mission in less
than 4 minutes and 30 seconds and i’ll be honest with you it took me a few goes to hit the time
constraint on this one so let’s pick it up from a restart where we’re dropped in at the rail yard
right so there’s a quick call from trevor there so we’ll drop that go and select our pistol select
our pistol there we go and drop this first fella hit he’s always in the same spot and there’s one
more guy just up in the guard tower up the top there so you come back over to this little dolly
and you can see him wondering about this just take your time drop into michael’s ability and drop him
there we go great so let’s head up to the signal box all right and we’re just looking
for that thing there so there’s some controls up the top left that appeared for half a moment
that switched out the tracks and now we have to wait for the train to arrive
there is absolutely nothing you can do to speed this up you’ve just got to sit here
there it is all right so as it whizzes past we’ll see a quick cut scene there which will skip as
quickly as we can there we go and uh quick exchange between trevor and michael again we
can’t speed this up we just have to wait for the auto swap there we go and we are in the skylift
unfortunately we can’t keep this one after we’re done but uh that’s all right you can see the blue
dot on the screen so we’re just heading towards that now again a bit of attitude we need to make
sure we get over the telegraph poles but we don’t want to spend so much time going up
that we have to spend too much time coming back down so a little bit of altitude is all you need
all right as we get closer we’ll see the uh the first thing there which is
i think one of the the locomotive so just position yourself above this and this
will take some practice so don’t be don’t be worried if you have a crack at this a few times
so look for controls top left to see how to activate the electromagnet there we go pick
those up gain a bit of altitude again we just need to make sure we’re over the telegraph poles i did
collect one of these on the way through on one of my playthroughs and it was quite disappointing
and of course follow the yellow dots to get back to trevor’s airfield all right we can see
the truck there on the left just line yourself up and again this will take a little bit of practice
cinematic mode does not help here at all
once you’re there as soon as the controls pop up top left you can drop the loco and
it does some pretty interesting stuff to get on the back of the trailer it is quite amusing
there it is cool and then back to the rail yard so again just a little bit of
altitude to get above the telegraph poles and head straight on over to the blue dots
i tend to go for one of the ones at the back it’s just easier to find them line yourself up again
we’re going for one of the open container trays at the moment
lower yourself down again look for those controls top left there we go as soon as you’ve got them
hit the button and then it will attach itself and then straight on back to trevor’s airfield again
watch out for mobile towers
now as you get closer orientation doesn’t matter too much you just
need to be parallel to the truck you don’t doesn’t matter which way it actually drops on
so again we’ll line ourselves up watch for those controls top left as soon as they’re available
press them and then it will magically zap itself here we go to the trailer
and that’s gold so even with that what i consider a pretty reasonable
run we only squeaked that in by nine seconds so yeah that was a close one
so what are your thoughts do you have any tips for other viewers or could this have been done
differently leave your comment down below and check out the video on the left for the next
storyline mission or the one on the right for some more old grumpy game of goodness
