The trainyard is located southeast of the Poseidon Energy Plant WV-06 and is located on the edge of Charleston. There is a wooden control tower next to the railway tracks west of the yard's main building. The trainyard is full of rusted-out New Appalachian Railroad rail cars.
The main building contains a large loading bay and a few smaller employee areas that are located along an upper catwalk which runs around the edge of the building. There is a lunchroom and several lockers found here. The catwalk also allows access to the "roof" of the building which doubles as a parking lot and connects to the main road.
The main trainyard offices can be found on this level. One of the offices contains a locked floor safe (Picklock 1) and a locked terminal (Hacker 1) which controls the safe. The other office contains two desks with a letter of resignation on one of them and a Stealth Boy. There is a weapons workbench and an armor workbench in the lower section.

- Letter of resignation - Note, in the upstairs office with the filing cabinets, on the desk immediately in front of the door.
