Background[edit | edit source]
The trainyard on the edge of the Cranberry Bog was severely affected by earthquakes and erosion before the Great War. Owned by New Appalachian Railroad, the location had been under scrutiny following a comprehensive geological stability report showing evidence of imminent catastrophic erosion.
The survey's data and suggested preventative measures were dismissed by decades-long employee R. Wilson, citing they had never personally seen any evidence of what the report claimed, nor did they believe NAR would build trainyard infrastructure in a location that would be unviable long-term. Local mining giant Atomic Mining Services likewise dismissed the report, noting their own geologists had confirmed recent earthquakes were natural occurrences as opposed to a result of the company's mining tests.
Layout[edit | edit source]
The trainyard serves as the beginning (or end) of the region's railway system on the Red Line. The location consists of a vast collection of derelict train cars and ruined buildings, containing a large number of high level loot amidst radiation and enemies.
The ruined warehouses to the northeast include a locked safe and crafting stations for food and power armor, while the maintenance workshops to the northwest have a terminal. By the entrance, a hut with a grisly sight inside is found including a dead settler and a variety of torture implements.
Notable loot[edit | edit source]
