3. You’ll need to create a ramp in order to slide Edison’s luggage up and into the train. Therefore, you will need to place the items in order from largest to smallest (largest on the right, smallest on the left).

When you’re done placing the items into the correct positions, select the brown board located below the items to test your ramp.

Anthony), a Telegram, and a Le Monde newspaper (from Le Monde Reporter). Head left all the way until you reach a Pencil. Pick up the Pencil, and proceed left until you reach Thomas Edison’s cabin.

7. A cut-scene of the Mystery Train heading into a tunnel will appear. All of a sudden, the screen will turn pitch-black. When the light comes back on, Edison’s device will have vanished! You’re now on the case – you must prove that you’re not the real thief by uncovering the real criminal. You must find clues and ask witnesses what they might know regarding the crime. Everyone aboard the Mystery Train is a suspect.

It turns out that nothing in relation to Thomas Edison’s lost device is hidden inside of the compartment, but rather the Manuscript of a book that Mark Twain had been working on.
10. After speaking to Mark Twain, the train will suddenly come to an unexpected stop. You’ll find yourself on the outside of the Mystery Train. Speak to the three people standing near you, including the Train Conductor, the New York Times Reporter and George Ferris. The New York Times Reporter will mention that he had heard somebody running passed his cabin (from the direction of Thomas Edison’s room) at the time of the thieft.

You’ll need proof that he’s not the thief, though.

Erik Weisz directs you to talk to Nikola Tesla and ask what he may have been hiding.
35. Go back right to the Luggage Car. Enter through the opening and on to the top of the Mystery Train. Proceed right until you reach Nikola’s car.

To get passed the trap, jump on to the crate. Jump from the crate on to the to the wooden platform. To get passed the can attached to string, you’ll need to jump right over it.

The rest is pretty straight forward – simply go down to the middle wooden platform and walk right on by. Enter the next train car.
39. You’ve reached the last wooden car, the one in which the Mysterious Fellow resides. Walk up to the Mysterious Fellow and talk to him. Select option two, and the Mysterious Fellow will say that you have enough evidence to collar together a suspect. Let’s get down to business!

After putting all of the evidence together, you’ll need to take a closer look at the Luggage Bag that contained Thomas Edison’s device.
41. Head right all the way back to the Luggage Car. When you’ve reached the Luggage Car, go into your inventory and select USE under your Luggage Key. The Luggage Bag will open and you’ll need to take a closer look at everything inside. After looking a bit, you’ll uncover the top of the bag and discover several items that are from France.

43. When you exit the train, go left until you reach La Monde Reporter. She’ll start running away, you’ll need to chase her. La Monde Reporter will start to get the guard’s assitance. You’ll need to stay out of reach. Climb up the ladder, and jump from lion to lion (make sure their mouths are closed before you jump) until you reach the platform at the end.
44. When you’ve reached the platform, you’ll need to jump and bounce on several more platforms until you reach the next stable platform. Jump up on to the snake that’s moving up and down, and jump from the snake to the higher platform.
45. Proceed left until you reach La Monde Reporter once again. She’ll get more guards to assist her. You’ll need to jump from statue, to the green light, to the statue, to the green light, until you reach the very end. When you’ve reached the very last statue, you’ll automatically be taken to the top when the guards will tip it over. Quickly proceed left into the Ferris Wheel room.
46. La Monde Reporter won’t be running for much longer. Climb up the Ferris Wheel using the ropes. When you approach La Monde Reporter, she’ll push a crate on to you. Jump on to the broken rope, and it’ll swing you across the entire Ferris Wheel. Climb up some more until you reach the very top. La Monde Reporter will throw the Transformer. You’ll need to jump on to the broken rope (labelled in red) very quickly if you want to save the Transformer before it hits the ground!
47. The swinging rope will take you all the way to the other side of the Ferris Wheel. Climb up to the top and click on La Monde Reporter. She’ll fall from the Ferris Wheel and land in the tank.
