Red Jack decided to keep clear of the shipping lanes for a while after his encounter with a british ship of the line, he heads for the american mainland to have a go at the Spanish Silver Train which still runs over the isthmus of Panama.
Red Jack has worked his way inland and intends to ambush the train on its run into Portobello, before it gets to the way-station of San Miguel.
The silver train halts for a rest, the offficers confer. They are usually met here by a patrol of dragoons from the way-station of San Miguel.
The pirates have charged into the rear and flank of the the silver train, while pirates from the rocks have charged down hill pushing back the regulars. The rest of the regulars regroup ....
The pirates have success at the rear of the train and push back the regulars, and start to lead some of the mules towards the jungle ....
As the pirates lead more of the mules into the jungle, they hold off the regulars, meanwhile at the front of the train the regrouped reulars exchange fire with the pirates - the way-sation patrol has just arrived to join the fight ...
The pirates disappear into the jungle leading the mules away - they have taken over half the silver train ..
