StoryEditAfter several days of being on the run, Billy decided to head for the Black River Mine where he could stowaway on a train to San Jose. Heading through a rocky, patchy forest path that he thought looked familiar, Billy was attacked by two wolves which he dispatched. Coming to a cliff side, he spotted the train on the other side of a canyon. Billy kept on trekking through the darkness and came across the body of an Apache Renegade, and he took the bow and arrows. (Bow doesn't appear on the PC version.)
Billy found several more bodies, and stopped at the edge of a cliff. He discovered the entrance to the mine, and figured he had about a mile to go. Seeing a campfire in the distance, Billy assumed the men were plundering the mine and decided to sneak past, thinking he would be killed if they saw him. Carefully traversing a small cave, he overheard two men talking and realized they were outlaws. Coming out the other side of the cave, one of the men walked toward Billy and under the flash of lightning thought he heard something. The other outlaw nearby told him it was probably just the wind, and, satisfied he turned around and headed back to the other criminal.Some time later the fugitive hid nearby another camp and listened in on the criminals' conversation. They spoke of robbing the train. Billy continued onward and came across outlaws discussing the bridge into the Black River Mine, saying that it might not hold up because the wind was too strong. Attempting to cross the bridge only for it to collapse, Billy was plunged into river below and narrowly avoided being taken by the rapid flow of the water.
Billy got up on the other side and began to look for another way inside. After some climbing he eventually reached the train tracks and decided to hole up and wait for the train. However, he perceives outlaws coming outside. Billy attacked and several more showed up behind them. Two more exited the mine but were shot down by an emerging Reverend Ray. The train appeared, and Billy leapt onto the roof, barely avoiding being shot by Ray.

- When being attacked by the wolves, if the player jumps backwards off the cliff, they can see the wolves jumping at the player, causing them to perish in addition to the player.
- If the player whips high up at a tree, and climbs up, they can swing around, and the wolves will attempt to attack the player without success.
- A chest can be found hidden behind some bushes at a cliff wall a short distance from the starting point. Since Billy mentions having been here before, it is likely he may have placed the chest and the weapon it contains there, or discovered it once before.
- "He Shall Flee from the Iron Weapon" is a reference to a passage in the Bible, Job 20:24. The full verse reads as follows: "He shall flee from the iron weapon, and the bow of steel shall strike him through."
