You can't be really close to the side of the train. You have to be a little farther away because Smoke can't shoot the guys when you are too close. If you have to, try to get on the train and kill them like that

Follow the train, and stay close enough to let B.S. (haha funny initials) shoot the four gang members on top. When you get to that barricade at the end of the tunnel, dont go around it, go right a bit and go up the dirt incline to avoid being hit by the other oncoming train. When this train passes by, you can either keep following the dirt path or jump back down onto the tracks to keep shooting.

Hope that answers your questions I have almost beaten the game anymore questions, ask me

Since you have almost beaten the game would you know where to find a Mesa for the export missions? Apparently its down at the docks on the first Island but I cannot find it please help me.

The best way to complete this mission is kill them fools on your own how to do this is simple mate trust me, you know when smoke tells you to take a right up that hill? And then says another train is approaching this is where you do it. As soon as you see that tree turn left and head for the tracks you will land on top of the approaching train and end up on top of the train you are chasing, jump off the bike and kill 'em.

To get an advantage, at the beginning of the race take the ramp at the right of the tracks. It is short but each shot made will have double the effect taking out one whole enemy in such a little distance.

In response to Joker's answer....

Yes, now I have technically beaten the game (Beaten all storyline missions). No, I don't know where the Mesa is, although I've seen one in Las Venturas and a couple in the desert and backcountry. It also might be at the beach. TIP-Use the jetpack when searching for cars. You can make quick, easy, fast landings when you find your car.

Make sure that Big Smoke is not missing at all. If you let them leave Los Santos you lose the mission. You need to kill them as quick as possible.

Get better at your driving skills and stay close to the train.

To quote from our unofficial guide to San Andreas;

Mission 3: Wrong Side of the Tracks

Follow the yellow icon on the radar to reach Unity Station. Drive into the red marker there to trigger a cutscene. The four Vagos at the station drop down onto the moving train in an attempt to escape; immediately hop onto the nearby motorbike and speed after the train. All you have to do here is keep up with the train while Smoke fires at the Vagos, all four of which must be dead before the train leaves Los Santos. This mission can be somewhat difficult because each of the four Vagos has quite a bit of health. Not only that, but several obstacles are encountered on the tracks.

Smoke will target the second Vagos (from the back to the front of the carriage) initially, then the first, then third, and finally the fourth. Even if you're riding in front of the train, Smoke still focuses on the targets in that order, so you'll want to trail a bit behind his current target to give him the best shot. Hold down the Accelerate button and move along the tracks until you are a bit ahead of Smoke's current target, then release the Accelerate button, periodically pressing down on it to maintain speed. If the train starts to get too far ahead, hold down the Accelerate button to pick up speed. Make sure you're moving along the outside of the track for best results.

As mentioned, there are a couple of obstacles along the way: an idle car on the tracks that promptly explodes upon impact with the train, and an oncoming train that forces you to take a high ground trail. These obstacles are easily avoided if you can see them coming; slow down when you spot the parked car on the tracks, and listen for Smoke's cue to take to the high ground. The mission's a failure if even one gang member is left standing when the train reaches the city exit.
