The Train tunnel is an unmarked location in Fallout: New Vegas.


The tunnel is located between Raul's Shack and the Brotherhood of Steel Safehouse, north of Gypsum train yard. It is home to some 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, (Lockpick skill 100).

The tunnels main purpose is an alternative route to reach Nellis Air Force Base in order to avoid the shelling. It will exit just south of Nellis within view of the control tower. Following the right-hand tracks to the fence and then heading left along the fence line will avoid the bombardment.

Notable loot

  • Xbox 360Icon xbox360.png PlayStation 3Icon ps3.png There is a bug where you glitch through the floor at a set of stairs and a patch of wall on the opposite side, inside the train tunnel. Falling through the stairs will land you at the far end of the train tunnel. For Xbox 360/PS3 this has been patched.
