The last Express Tips & Tricks

Tags: The last Express Game Guides, The last Express Hints, The last Express Walkthrough

The last Express

Introduction
   
This walkthrough assumes you are familiar with operating the game's
user interface.
   
The Last Express is not a completely linear game, so this walkthrough
is only one order of events while others will also lead to a
successful game completion.
   
The events in this game do not always happen at the same time or in
same place for each game played. For this reason you may find it
difficult to follow this walkthrough exactly. You may get behind
schedule and miss opportunities. Usually you will get another chance
to perform critical actions. If the game ends prematurely you can
always rewind.
  
General Hints
   
   1.Whenever the conductors are not at their stations take a look at
   their books. One of them sketches the passengers. These pictures may
   provide clues. Check this book as often as you can. As the journey
   progresses, you will find more sketches in his book. The other book
   contains the passenger list. 2.The newspaper in the smoking
   compartment contains interesting political information. 3.Whenever the
   conductors' views are blocked you can try to enter other passenger's
   compartments. 4.When the guard leaves his office in the baggage car,
   usually to make announcements for meals or stops, you can explore the
   forward baggage compartment. 5.Eavesdrop as much as possible. 6.Engage
   the other passengers in conversation as often as possible. This
   walkthrough will not enable you to listen to every conversation, but
   you will hear most of them. 7.Follow the passengers when they move.
   This may represent another opportunity for eavesdropping or
   conversation. 8.This game, although mainly a puzzle solving adventure,
   involves a few action sequences where you have to fight with an
   assailant. The fights involve hand-eye coordination and fast
   reactions. They get increasingly difficult as the game progresses. The
   game will end prematurely if you lose the fight. But with practice you
   will win. Don't despair! 9.To begin with you will be unfamiliar with
   the layout of the train. Here is the initial configuration:

   24th July 1914, Paris to Chalons
   
   19:14 Tyler Whitney looks out from the stationary Orient Express. He
   is clearly expecting someone.
   
   19:39 The Orient Express has left Paris. Robert Cath jumps on to the
   moving train.
   
   At this point you take control of Cath's actions. You are positioned
   between the Private Car and the Rear Sleeping Car. Turn right and go
   into the Rear Sleeping Car.
   
   
   
   Find Compartment 1. This is Tyler Whitney's compartment. Open the door
   and go inside. You find Tyler's dead body. You must get rid of the
   body or you will be arrested for Tyler's murder! Open the compartment
   window. Pick up Tyler's body and throw it out of the window. Your
   jacket is bloody. If the conductor sees you like this you will be
   arrested, so swap it for Tyler's jacket hanging near the window. Get
   Tyler's case down from the rack and open it. Read Cath's telegram to
   Tyler. Take the Russian scroll. Try to read it. You are going to need
   a translator!
   
   19:40 First Service Dinner is announced.
   
   Go to the Restaurant Car. On your way through the Smoking Compartment,
   stop and listen to Sophie and Rebecca chatting.
   
   Go into the Dining Compartment and talk with the older man sitting by
   himself, August Schmidt. Tyler & August clearly had a deal! You have
   to find some gold or this deal will go ahead. After August returns to
   his compartment, stay in the Dining Compartment. Now talk to the
   younger man sitting on his own, Alexei Dolnikov. When Alexei leaves
   pick up his book and take the timetable inside it. Note he has marked
   the time 10:40 on the timetable. Alexei returns shortly to retrieve
   his book. Listen to the elderly gentleman and young woman chatting.
   This is the Count and Tatiana, his granddaughter
   
   Leave the Restaurant Car and walk through the Sleeping Cars, until you
   encounter the child Francois Boutarel blowing a whistle. Follow
   Francois to Compartment D. He will tell his mother how he saw a dead
   man being thrown from the train!
   
   Return to the Dining Compartment. When the elegant woman, Anna,
   enters, talk to her.
   
   Go into the Smoking Compartment and show Alexei the Russian scroll. He
   wasn't very helpful. You will need someone else who is fluent in
   Russian
   
   Return to the Dining Compartment. Listen to the Boutarel's discussion.
   Listen and watch August flirting with Anna.
   
   Leave and walk through to the Rear Sleeping Car. The conductor tells
   you that you are requested to go to the Private Car. Do so.
   
   20:30 Second Service Dinner is announced.
   
   In the Private Car, you meet Kronos and Tahina. Kronos alludes to a
   very significant exchange of something highly valuable...and a very
   heavy briefcase. Return to the Dining Car.
   
   The Count and Tatiana are leaving. Follow them. As they go through the
   Smoking Compartment, Alexei confronts the Count. Talk to Alexei. He
   leaves.
   
   Return to the Dining Compartment and listen to Sophie and Rebecca's
   discussion.
   
   
   
   Return to your compartment, number 1, and you will be attacked by
   Milos. When you win the fight by disarming him, he will talk to you.

   see Tahina in the Sleeping Cars corridor searching other people's
   compartments for something.

   his apprentice are chatting. Return to the Sleeping Cars Corridor.

   You should see Tahina leaving your compartment, stopping outside
   Anna's then entering someone else's.

   arrested! I found the best place to hide was in the Count's washroom.
   Go into Compartment A, then into the washroom. Stay here until you
   here the police disembark. Go out to the corridor.

   Around 15:10 go to the Private Car where the music concert is
   starting. Sit down and appreciate the music. Watch Tahina. Tahina
   leaves the concert (to search compartments again). Tahina returns to
   the concert a few minutes later. Now it is safe to do some compartment
   searching yourself! Leave the concert.
   
   You have half an hour to an hour to complete the following very
   interesting activities while several people are occupied by the
   concert.
   
   Go into Compartment E. Search it and read Rebecca's diary. Exit
   through the window and enter Anna's compartment. Open the trunk. In
   the bottom drawer is an enlightening letter. Look at the jewel case.
   In the bottom of it there is a secret compartment. Open it and take
   the master key.
   
   The master key will open all the compartment and outer doors. Leave
   Anna's compartment and go to the outside door area between the Rear
   Sleeping Car and Private Car. Use the key to unlock the right-hand
   side door and go outside. Use the ladder to climb up to the roof of
   the train. Turn around and walk to the back of the train along the
   roof. When you get to the glass roof of the Private Car (you should
   hear the concert), smash it. Jump down into Kronos's private bedroom.
   
   Look at the papers on the bedside table. It seems as though Tyler had
   the egg when he left Paris. Find the hidden switch on the wall to the
   right of the wardrobe and press it. This opens up a cabinet and
   reveals a briefcase. Look at the case. It is full of gold. Take it.
   Leave via the door and go into the music concert! This causes a bit of
   a stir. Leave.
   
   Return to your compartment. Put the case under your bed. Retrieve the
   golden egg.
   
   Go to the Baggage Car and go though to the very end (when the guard is
   elsewhere), so that you can see the engine. Open the dog's cage. Let
   Max out. Deposit the golden egg in the cage.
   
   Return to the Sleeping Car corridor. Abbot tries to talk to Alexei in
   the Smoking Compartment. Alexei leaves.
   
   Alexei's return will enable you to enter Compartment 3 using the
   master key. Search August's compartment. Search his case. You will
   find a draft letter. Return to the concert.
   
   When the concert ends return to your compartment. Collect the case
   full of gold. Go back out to the Sleeping Car corridor. In the Forward
   Sleeping Car, Anna and August are chatting. Return to the Rear
   Sleeping Car.
   
   Go to Compartment 3. Wait for August to go in. Visit August and show
   him the gold.
   
   Tahina tells you at gun point to see Kronos. Surprise, surprise! Go to
   the Private Car. Kronos will reclaim the case full of gold. Return to
   the Rear Sleeping Car.
   
   Milos will chat with you. Go to Compartment G. Visit Milos and talk to
   him some more.
   
   You may hear Tatiana reporting to Anna, that the egg has been stolen!
   Go to the Smoking Compartment.
   
   Listen to Abbot and August chatting. When Abbot leaves chat with
   August.
   
   Go to the Baggage Car. And go into the now open baggage area. Find the
   box that was loaded on the train by August in Munich. Try to open it.
   Anna will appear and you will hear her story about Tyler and the egg.
   Then Vesna attacks you. Keep avoiding Vesna's attack until Anna takes
   control of the situation. Take a look in the box if you get a chance.
   
   18:00 The train arrives at Vienna.
   
   
   
   25th July 1914, Vienna to Budapest
   
   19:35 First Service Dinner is announced.
   
   Visit Compartment F and chat with Anna. Return to the Dining
   Compartment.
   
   August is waiting for Anna. But Anna sends a message canceling the
   appointment. Leave and go to the area between the Rear Sleeping Car
   and the Private Car.
   
   Here you will find Alexei and Tatiana talking. You can only eavesdrop
   if you listen from next to the guard's station so that they don't know
   you are there. You should overhear Alexei planning to blow up the
   train! Go to Compartment 2.
   
   20:08 The train arrives at Poszony.
   
   Search Alexei's compartment. Get the case from the rack and take the
   detonator you find there. Abbot will walk in on you!
   
   When you return to the corridor Alexei and Tatiana should be parting
   company. Go to the Forward Sleeping Car. Claude and Abbot are chatting
   in Compartment C.
   
   20:30 Second Service Dinner is announced.
   
   20:47 The train arrives at Galanta.
   
   Return to your compartment. When you hear the knocking, open the door.
   Tatiana visits you and asks for your help. Go to the Smoking
   Compartment.
   
   Chat with a very drunk August. Return to your compartment.
   
   Go to sleep. You dream.
   
   22:30 You wake up
   
   Go to Compartment A. In Compartment A, you hear Alexei's last words
   and witness his death. Leave.
   
   You overhear Abbot asking the Guard to keep the incident quiet. You
   should be hearing a fairly loud ticking. Remember how Alexei had noted
   down the time of 10:40 p.m. on his train timetable?
   
   Track down the sound of the clock to the Guard's forward station
   panel. Open the panel and find the bomb. Move the bomb once only. Use
   a cigarette on the exposed wires to burn through the wires. Do not
   open the box! Turn the box around and remove the screws from the
   hinges. Place the telegram between the moving contacts to disarm the
   bomb. Phew! Not a second too soon! Congratulations! Go to the Smoking
   Compartment.
   
   Chat with Abbot. Follow Anna to her compartment. Although she is tired
   be persistent in talking to her . . . The Serbs take over the train!
   
   
   
   26th July 1914, Budapest to Istanbul
   
   04:40 You wake up.
   
   You are bound and imprisoned in a baggage compartment. Free yourself.
   Fight the Serb. You must hit him a few times to win. Then free Anna.
   Go to the back of the train, go outside and up the ladder onto the
   roof.
   
   Go toward the engine and fight the Serb. Avoid the attacks, then grab
   the bar he is using to attack you to win. Turn around and fight Vesna.
   Avoid Vesna's attacks then when she ducks, you must duck too. Return
   to the Dining Compartment.
   
   You explain what has happened and most passengers return to their
   compartments.
   
   The Count and Tatiana won't move. Chat with them. Go to the area
   between the Restaurant Car and the Sleeping Car.
   
   Open up the floor here, and de-couple the cars. August is not a happy
   man! Return to the roof of the train.
   
   Go to the engine and chat with Milos, Anna shoots Milos and tries to
   stop the train.
   
   Release the brake and the train will continue on crashing through the
   Serbian barrier. Go to the passenger compartment in the Baggage Car.
   Chat with Anna . . .
   
   
   
   27th July 1914, Budapest to Istanbul
   
   07:00 You wake up.
   
   When Anna leaves. Go to the Restaurant Car. Chat with Kronos. Fetch
   the Firebird egg from the dog's cage. Open the Firebird by clicking on
   the gems according to the order in the Firebird scroll:
   
   Australia (aqua), Denmark (blue), China (red), Island in the South
   Pacific (purple), the Near East (green).
   
   Anna will make the Firebird sing by playing the violin.
   
   When Kronos tells you to close the Firebird, immediately use the gold
   whistle on the Firebird . . . At last you understand how Tyler died.
   
   Enjoy the closing sequences and history lesson!
