Hello and on behalf of the Nuka-Cola Corporation, we'd like to welcome each and every one of you aboard the Nuka-Express Monorail.— Nuka-World announcer

The Nuka-Express is a monorail that connects the Commonwealth with Nuka-World, still operational in 2287.


The Nuka-Express was created to quickly bring visitors to and from Nuka-World. Trains running every 15 minutes transported visitors from the Nuka-World transit center near Boston to the Nuka-World station.[1] The system automatically notified corporate of all unauthorized delays, and ran the following schedule:

Sunday - Thursday
  • 6:00 am thru 9:30 am: Employees only
  • 9:45 am thru 11:55 pm: All traffic allowed
  • 12:00 am: Closed
Friday - Saturday
  • 6:00 am thru 8:30 am: Employees only
  • 8:45 am thru 11:55 pm: All traffic allowed
  • 12:00 am: Closed

After the war, with the main power off, emergency power was diverted to the monorail, keeping it operational.[2][3] Victims are lured into the Nuka-Express by Harvey, and it serves as the beginning of the Gauntlet, an inescapable torture maze built by the Nuka-World raiders for their entertainment.


The line enters the area from the northeast, from a tunnel in the rockface. It traverses above the outskirts of the park until ending at the Nuka-World station. The Nuka-Express monorail cars can be entered, but only the first car of the two can be explored, with the controls for the train located in the driver's cabin.


The Nuka-Express appears only in the Fallout 4 add-on Nuka-World.

Behind the scenes

  • The Nuka-Express announcer, heard on both the monorail itself and at the Nuka-World transit center, was voiced by Jan Johns.
  • Once the monorail is activated, an automated bilingual safety spiel announces, "Please stand clear of the doors. Por favor manténganse alejado de las puertas." This is a direct reference to the Jack Wagner-voiced safety spiel heard on the Walt Disney World Monorail System, where the exact same phrase is famously heard whenever a train is about to depart a station.
