Locomotives can be found sitting idle on railroad tracks throughout the Mojave Wasteland in Fallout: New Vegas. The locomotives appear to belong to the same railroad company, as they are all decorated with the same livery. While an operational example cannot be found in the game, Chomps Lewis at Sloan will tell you that what they dig from the quarry is shipped off by train to the New Vegas Strip and other parts of the Mojave Wasteland


Locomotives can be found on the rail lines around New Vegas. Two examples include a lone engine sitting outside of the entrance to Boulder City, and one attached to several boxcars in the Gypsum Train Yard.

Behind the scenes

  • The locomotives are very similar in appearance to the iconic F-Unit series of locomotives manufactured between 1939 and 1960 by the General Motors corporation.
  • The locomotive at the entrance to Boulder City is adorned with the logo for the fictional "Barstow Strong Express". This may be a reference to William Barstow Strong (1837–1914), former president of the real world "Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe Railroad," which is now known as the "BNSF."
  • The locomotives' paint scheme appears to reference the Southern paint scheme.
