The VAPL-58 power station is a set of fenced-in power lines and transformers next to a power substation in the Capital Wasteland in 2277. It is located south-southwest of Arefu, north of Jury Street Metro station, and west of Vault 106, where two power lines from the north and east intersect.

Layout[edit | edit source]

The substation here is one of the few in the game which allows access to the roof. A fallen transmission line tore down a hole in the fences, making it possible for one to exit the power station without using the front gate.

Notable loot[edit | edit source]

  • Two Nuka-Cola Quantums - one lying on top of the workbench inside the substation, the other is found in a shack behind a barricade just south-east of the station
  • A copy of Dean's Electronics - Next to the safe, atop the desk inside the substation.
  • The ladder on the east wall inside the station leads to the roof where a copy of U.S. Army: 30 Handy Flamethrower Recipes can be found.
  • On the hanging light fixture, just below the ceiling in the middle of the room is a mini nuke.
  • A bottlecap mine - On the substation workbench.
  • A Stealth Boy - In the back on the control panels of the station.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The first Keller family transcript can be found on a bookshelf in the pylon shack, which is at the third power pylon to the north of the power station as well as a mini-nuke. A pre-War book is lying on the northeast footing of the pylon.
  • On rare occasions, a deathclaw may be in the station upon entering, but because of the cramped space will have no way of attacking.
  • There is a workbench inside the power substation (the building inside the fenced area). Additionally, there are many parts for custom weapons scattered around.
  • The substation's safe is small, being a quarter the size of a typical safe.

Appearances[edit | edit source]

The VAPL-58 power station appears only in Fallout 3.
