Characteristics[edit | edit source]
The monorail is an ALWEG-style straddle-beam monorail train that can be used to transport the player character from the Strip to Camp McCarran or vice versa. Traveling on the monorail does not take in-game time and is not seen.
To be allowed to enter the monorail, the player character must have a "Liked" reputation with the New California Republic or be wearing NCR faction armor. It's also possible to enter with Craig Boone as a companion. It is possible to enter the car in-game when on the quest I Put a Spell on You, where the Courier plants or disarms a bomb inside the vent. It is not possible to walk along the top of the track.
Notes[edit | edit source]
- During the mission I Put a Spell on You a pre-recorded announcement, likely from before the war, can be heard reminding passengers to keep children restrained when the monorail is in motion.
- When in the New Vegas side of the monorail station, the sky cannot be seen behind the monorail. This is most likely a bug.
Appearances[edit | edit source]
The monorail appears only in Fallout: New Vegas.
Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]
The monorail is based on the real-life Las Vegas Monorail, 3.9-mile monorail system running along the Las Vegas Strip from the Sahara to the MGM Grand. Unlike the in-game equivalent, the real world monorail does not reach McCarran International Airport.
