HL train[edit]

Hm, this is making me think, we don't actually have an article on the electric train in Half-Life, so it's about time we started one, but... what do we call it? >_> --MattyDienhoff 11:26, 10 October 2008 (UTC)

Well it seems to be called a monorail on the rest of this wiki, but what do they call it in the tutorial in HL? I'm pretty sure you ride one there, don't you?--ImWithFreeman 11:28, 10 October 2008 (UTC)
You do, but the instructor just calls it "the train". I guess we'll go with monorail, it fits. --MattyDienhoff 11:33, 10 October 2008 (UTC)
We can put a nice fat link at the top of this page pointing anyone who comes here for the train to the monorail article.--ImWithFreeman 11:34, 10 October 2008 (UTC)
Like For the electric train featured in Half-Life, see Monorail?, good idea. --MattyDienhoff 11:38, 10 October 2008 (UTC)
Exactly.--ImWithFreeman 11:39, 10 October 2008 (UTC)


According to the featured article queue this should be the featured article at the moment, I don't know how to deal with that so someone else will have to sort it out.--Eateroftheflame 18:48, 8 July 2009 (UTC)

Oops. It was not too late to fix that. Sorry. Klow 15:42, 9 July 2009 (UTC)

More images[edit]

Okay, I think we need images of the models for the following vehicles: ~Freight monorails from Half-Life(there were two types) ~The yard shunter from Blue Shift ~The "open" Razor Train freight car ~The carriage that Gordon Freeman is in as he arrives in City 17. --JohnnySnib 11:08, June 22, 2011 (UTC)

You are completely right. Klow 19:19, June 24, 2011 (UTC)

EP2 Locomotive?[edit]

I believe the EP2 locomotive isn't a TEM2 - It's more accurately half a TEM-7 - the shorter front hood and the bogie design give it away as being partly TEM7
