History

This is just an average rail road station...but it has been the location of a few memorable events. Built in the art deco style of the 1920s (despite being constructed in the early 1950s) this rail station was the home of a notorious pickpocket gang in the 60s, large amounts of radioactive waste were transferred through here in the late 80s, and it was completely restored in the mid 90s. It's in a rather rough area so the restoration effort came as a complete surprise to both the locals and City Hall. It was later found out that the estimated 20 million dollar restoration project came about due to a typo. The secretary at fault was promptly fired and, ironically enough, she was one of the first zombies to shamble into City Hall. On that note, let's go for a tour.

Tour

On your left you'll see the main entrance. It's usually barricaded up but, you know, stuff happens. Like the dead walk...and stuff. Anyway, on your right you'll see the escalators that lead down to the subway. We don't go down there anymore...Oh, its nothing sinister, just that the escalators stopped working a few months back and people are too lazy to take the stairs. Moving along, you'll see our makeshift kitchen. No, you can't have any rats, you have to have worked the 'cades or be wounded before you can eat. Yes, this the main floor of the train station, which we've found is perfect for a kitchen. Up above here are the offices, which we use as sleeping areas. Oh, and don't mind the Soviet flags. We had a rather zealous tourist here, and she was quite vocal about her flags. Finally, we come to the train loading area, which we tend to use as a hospital/soccer field. Well, we can't use the local park anymore, right?

Current Events

This train station is the headquarters of the AlQilya Jihad and is open to any well-intentioned survivors. However, AlQilya is currently operating near Caiger Mall, but the offer of entry still stands.
