The Technical Trainstation (see below for a note regarding the name) is an industrial / freight trainstation seen at the very end of Episode One. According to a sign on the platforms, it is connected to Nova Prospekt, like the City 17 Trainstation.


Trains and platforms.

When going out of the hospital, Gordon and Alyx reunite with Barney on a parking lot and start bringing refugees to the escape trains leaving from a nearby industrial trainstation, while being assaulted by Combine forces. While Gordon helps bringing the Citizens, Alyx remains inside the building and covers them with an Emplacement Gun conveniently installed there.

After the last refugees leave, Gordon and Alyx go catch the last train but are momentarily separated when a Strider and Overwatch Soldiers attack them. After defeating the Strider with his RPG, Gordon joins Alyx and they then leave City 17 at last. At this point the Citadel goes critical while Advisor pods can be seen flying from it.

Behind the scenes[edit]

In the parking lot between the hospital and the trainstation, a Cyrillic sign that reads "Техника" can be seen on the trainstation building and also inside, from the tracks. It translates to "technics" ("technical" will be used here, since it fits better). "Техника" is however commonly used for home appliances shops, and thus has nothing to do with a trainstation; it is rather present there as a scenery placeholder, since it can also be seen in Half-Life 2 above regular buildings, such as in the Canals or near Shorepoint.
