July 11, 1899, 10 a.m., the Union Pacific Express just left Folsom, New Mexico, with 47 passengers on board. A few minutes later, we hear rushing footsteps on the roof, then the first shots fired. Ruthless bandits armed to the teeth rob travellers to grab their personal belongings. But will they keep their cool and avoid bullets? Who will be able to take the Nice Valley Coal Company's pay case, even though it is under the supervision of Marshal Samuel Ford? Only one bandit will achieve his goal: to become the richest outlaw in the gang.

Each player chooses a character, takes the corresponding Character card and places it in front of him. He places the 6 ball cards of his suit, in increasing order of the number of balls, to the left of his character card. He mixes the 10 Action cards of his suit and places them face down to the right of his Character card: this forms his personal pick. Each player also takes a $250 purse and places it on his card, keeping its value hidden.

In the middle of the table, form a train with as many Wagons as there are players. Choose or randomly select the Wagons and place them in the order of your choice. Then add the Locomotive at one end.

Place in each Wagon the number and types of loot tokens indicated on its floor. The Stock Exchanges are randomly drawn and arranged with their hidden value. Place the Marshal counter and a Kitty in the Locomotive. Unused loot tokens are returned to the box except for the second Kitty, which is placed next to the Locomotive.

Randomly take 4 cards from the 7 cards corresponding to the number of players (2-4 players or 5-6 players) and shuffle them. Then take at random, without revealing it, one of the 3 Arrival at the station cards. Form a 5-card deck by placing the 4 Channel cards face down on the Arrival at the Station card. Put all the other cards in the box.

Place the 13 neutral ball cards next to the Locomotive.
