The New Appalachian central trainyard is a location in the Savage Divide region of Appalachia in 2102.

BackgroundEdit

Located in the lower mountains of the Savage Divide in Appalachia, the New Appalachian central trainyard was a hub for passing freight and passenger trains heading up or down the mountain. Situated alongside Route 63 - a major highway for semi-trailer truck hauling freight, its prime location allowed for easy loading and unloading of freight, if needed. The location had a minor ticket office, bank, an office for yard operations, and a Post Office. At the south of the location was a maintenance warehouse where engines and cars could be moved in for repair work. At the north end was a watchtower for switch operators.

In the months leading up to the Great War, a heist was planned, in which a group of individuals were planning to rob a vault car after it finished loading up with all of the money from the bank.[1] The group initially only had an inside switch operator to rig the switches to work in their favor, but eventually, they were able to bribe one of the guards riding with the vault car to "lay low" so one of the thieves could take his place.[2] Events transpired and the heist went horribly wrong, resulting in a yard full of toppled and damaged cars, spilled and damaged cargo, damage to the main building, in addition to loss of life - namely employees at the bank.[3] Work began to clean up the mess while federal authorities investigated, but their work was ultimately derailed by the war.[4]

LayoutEdit

Along route 63 is the New Appalachian central trainyard, at the northern end of which is the railway switch operators tower. From there, one can find a railyard filled with derailed traincars with a partially destroyed post office, bank and ticket purchase station crushed by railcars running alongside it. On the building's roof is a cooking station and some junk items. At the southern end is a train maintenance warehouse with a weapons workbench and an armor workbench. Next to that is another watchtower and a water tower.

Notable lootEdit

  • Employee notice - On the desk on the second floor of the ransacked bank building.
  • Power armor chassis - In the middle of the building with the train cars.
  • Three random magazines:
    • Can be found on a desk in the railway switch operators tower.
    • Can be found in the ransacked bank, on a table in the vault.
    • On the small metal desk with the ham radio, in the signal tower by the red water tower, east of the main trainyard warehouse.
  • Random Vault-Tec bobblehead - Can be found on a desk in the partially destroyed bank building.

Behind the scenesEdit

Near an observation tower there is a Hangman game written in chalk on the floor. Its letters are presumed to, when complete, fill up as "The Crimson King", a character in the Dark Tower series by Stephen King.
