This area is only accessible during the 2nd scenario, following a cutscene after reaching here by either using the Lift (Leon) / Turntable (Claire) platform. During gameplay, the player can enter the cargo that contains a Typewriter and Item Box, along with several items nearby: two Gunpowder (Large) and Combat Knife. Entering the next cargo will spawn G that has mutated into its final form, forcing the player to fight it by using any available weapons. Once G approach closely, it will reveal its weak spot (eyeball), applying enough damage will defeat it. Fail to do so will cause instant death.
The train reacts differently between the games that it depicts:
- In the original 1998 game, there's a biohazard detection on the train, make it explode right after it detected a G-virus creature on the train. Sherry managed to emergency stop the train and the trio run toward the tunnel before the self-destruct explode, taking G along with it.
- In both Darkside Chronicles & 2019 game, G is destroyed by the car getting dissected from the running train, and G and taken with the lab self-destruction. The main train car is intact and led the trio out of the tunnel safely.
