Fairfax station is a part of the DCTA Metro system. The station is named after the city of Fairfax, Virginia, within which it is located. Station identification signs are badly worn and are no longer legible. The mezzanine is largely intact, whereas the platform has been heavily damaged. The subway tunnels however have been destroyed, the tracks of which ran east to west.
Raiders have established a presence in the station with a work area on the mezzanine and a living area on the platform. The work area has a workbench. Several defensive measures were placed strategically in the station, including several frag mines near the entrance, a trip wire at the bottom of a sloping hallway activates a grenade bouquet, and a second trip wire placed in front of the turnstiles that activates a rigged shotgun placed inside a ticket agent's booth on the mezzanine. Unfortunately for the raiders, these defenses, save for the mines, have a greater chance of hurting them than the Lone Wanderer.
Fairfax station appears only in Fallout 3.
Behind the scenes
- Fairfax Metro Station may be the equivalent of Vienna/Fairfax-GMU Station, the westernmost station on the orange line of the real Washington Metro.
