The Morgantown monorail is a public transportation system in Appalachia's Forest region, operational before the Great War.

Background

Prior to 2077, the monorail system served the citizens in the Morgantown area, including those attending Vault-Tec University.

Layout

Elevated above the streets on a continuous platform line, monorail pod train cars traversed back and forth, connected to the track below.[1] The monorail provided service to four stations in Morgantown, connecting several parts of the town to Vault-Tec University.[2]

The line begins (or ends) at the Morgantown south station, curving towards the residential area and then running parallel with the Morgantown Airport. Vault-Tec University station is situated next on the line, connected via skybridge to the East Campus Building.[3][4] Heading farther north will lead to a sharp curve directly in front of the airport. The path branches off to circle the north station, rejoining the main line, and sweeping down to the last station at the airport.

Having since fallen into disrepair since the Great War, many sections of the monorail line have been commandeered as makeshift homes. There are six monorail pods still sitting upon the track. Where the track itself has broken, makeshift repairs have been made with wood and metal scrap.

Notable loot

    "The taller structures in town are surrounded by a monorail loop and several stations (North, South, University, and Airport) you can reach by wandering on or below the rails. When you reach the southern edge of Morgantown's sprawling settlement, there's a small farmstead with a cottage (and flooded basement), a silo, and a red barn."

    "Exterior: The university is comprised of three campus structures made of old imposing brick edifices, all with red doors that are easily entered. The interiors of the structure link underground to each other, while a skybridge links one of the campus buildings to the Monorail station. Check the area under the monorail station for a small tent city, which has a few additional items to scavenge."

    "The largest of the three campus buildings is east of the Vault Boy garden statue and links the gardens (west) with the monorail (east). Inside is a central foyer with a "cog" display and access to four main corridors and stairs, including an entrance to the Simulation Vault via a terminal. Three classrooms are on the ground floor. Up the stairs is the Overseer’s Holotape, access to the monorail bridge, a large lecture hall, and the "B" wing of rooms."
