First, you’ll need to find the train. This is in one of the areas where you fight Hartman right near the Eagle Limited AWE Control Point. After clearing that, you’ll be able to approach the train. Go to the back of the train to start the mission. You’ll see an interaction prompt near one of the doors (the door at the picture at the very top of this article).

You’ll see a bunch of items you can interact with. The key here is to play the story the way it unfolded and to interact with the items in the most logical chronological order. Listening to their story gives you clues on what happened first and last. The first one you need to interact with is the briefcase, as you can see in the above picture.

In essence, the Control AWE train puzzle solution is:

  • Briefcase
  • Conductor’s hat
  • Violin
  • Dinner plate
  • Hammer
  • Pile of gears

You must do them in that order. You’ll get a weapon mod, a case file, and crafting materials.
