Game information


"Look, we're just the lookout for the Underground Railroad. Main station is right around the corner. They'll get you started on the right foot."
BoxCar Joe[src]

Station 1[1] is the first and main Underground Railroad station visited by Gordon Freeman during his journey to Black Mesa East. It is located in the City 17 Canals, next to the railroad.


Connected to the outside by a large pipe, Station 1 is located in a large, concealed sewer room where Resistance members could live in relative comfort, or use the dedicated radio. The room also includes a sofa, a table, two chairs, and several mattresses. There is also a number of medical supplies and batteries, most likely scavenged from the nearby Civil Protection forces or stray City Scanners.

Nearby are damaged train boxcars, one of them housing Joe and a Vortigaunt. As often seen in the Canals, several Barnacles hang on ceilings in the surroundings.

Half-Life 2[edit]

Not so long before Gordon's arrival at Station 1, Civil Protection forces found the station and commenced a raid to destroy it.

When Gordon arrives, CPs have already rounded up outside some of the Rebels who were stationed there and gun them down with an Emplacement Gun mounted on the station's roof, while they beg for mercy. One survivor sees Gordon from the main room access tunnel when he arrives and pleads for help, but is shot from behind by a Metrocop.

After eliminating the Civil Protection presence in the area while being unable to save any Rebel, Gordon continues on. He soon finds Mary, a Rebel who was hiding in a nearby concrete pipe, who urges him to go on.
