Layout[edit | edit source]
The main entrance of Andrew station is inside a half-collapsed building. The roof of the building can be accessed using makeshift stairs on the side. The station is inhabited by raiders which are led by Chancer. On the ground floor of the station is an automated turret.
Underground the station consists of a long network of tunnels, though most of these have become inaccessible. The tunnels lead both to Eddie Winter's hideout, which can only be accessed at the end of the Long Time Coming quest and to Chancer's quarters. There is another exit in Chancer's quarters that may be opened using the key in Eddie Winter's room.
Andrew Station can be accessed from a Master locked trapdoor behind the counter of Joe's Spuckies sandwich shop, just north of the South Boston Police Department and south of Mass Bay Medical Center. A key to the trapdoor can be found in the small theater room under the trapdoor.
Multiple crafting stations can be used at this location:
- Two weapons workbenches: One on the roof of the building, and another inside the subway station on an open space after a corridor defended by an automated turret.
- One armor workbench: On the roof of the building, next to the weapons workbench.
- Two cooking stations: On the ground floor, in eyesight of the stairs that go down the subway station, and another is located next to the second weapons workbench, inside the subway station.
- Two chemistry stations: On the ground floor, next to the cooking station. A second station can be found behind the door in the same room as Chancer is in. The door is to be unlocked by pressing the button on the wall behind the bar.

Notes[edit | edit source]
- In the quest Long Time Coming, Nick will attempt to move through the station ahead of the player character. This presents a problem since he will run straight into mines. Care should be taken to disarm them while he is fighting raiders. Alternatively, one can simply stay outside the blast radius of any explosives he might hit.
- The locked electric door containing the reward chest is connected to a button behind a bookshelf. Follow the door's copper wire to find the button.
Appearances[edit | edit source]
Andrew station appears only in Fallout 4.
Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]
- The station is based on the real world Andrew station, located in approximately the same area in Boston, Massachusetts.
- The unmarked house near Andrew station, where the Grognak the Barbarian magazine is found, was based on lead designer Emil Pagliarulo's childhood home. He jokingly stated that the bedroom looked about the same as it did in 1984, alongside an unflattering image of the dirty mattress and brain fungus on the wall.
