The VAPL-58 power station is a power routing station, located south-southwest of Arefu and north of Fort Bannister.


An abandoned pre-War power substation, VAPL-58 has not been sacked by scavengers or travelers. Though the elements claimed some of the equipment, it's still in good shape and contains plenty of loot. A ladder just left of the entry door leads to the roof of the station, giving a decent vantage point for sharpshooters.

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