For the location that appears in the Fallout 3 add-on The Pitt, see train tunnel (Fallout 3).
...Also, I know there is an old train tunnel that enters the area from the south, but no one has ever come back out of there to say it is safe.Nellis artillery timing details, George

The train tunnel is an unmarked location in the Mojave Wasteland, located between Raul's shack and the Brotherhood of Steel safehouse, and north of Gypsum train yard.


It is home to feral ghouls and glowing ones. It is lined with frag mines throughout, including some placed on the waist-high ledge on either side of the tunnel. Near the western exit are two bear traps. Both ends of the tunnel are locked with a Very Hard lock.

The tunnel serves as an alternative route to reach Nellis Air Force Base in order to avoid most of the shelling. It will exit just south of Nellis within view of the control tower. Follow the right-hand tracks to the fence and then head left along the fence line to avoid the bombardment.

Notable lootEdit

  • PCIcon pc Sometimes the doors will not be locked and can be opened without the need to pick the lock. [verified]
  • Xbox 360Icon xbox360 Sometimes, it is not possible to enter the side room in which a glowing one is waiting. The floor of the stairs is not solid, leading the player character to fall through and into the void, subsequently sent back to the tunnel entrance. The same will happen to any playable/interactable object, any corpses, and to any of companions. No solution found yet, though through the clever use of barrels found in the tunnel can be used to jump the stairs. [verified]
