- In game description
Broken Railroad is the seventh region to be added to The Long Dark.
Broken Railroad is described as a section of the Trans-Island Railway Line that was ravaged by earthquakes prior to the First Flare, making navigation rather difficult. The region is connected to Forlorn Muskeg. It is a relatively small region with mild weather, but is home to many predators: 6-8 wolves and a bear, which can be difficult to avoid in the narrow, hilly, and heavily forested region.
Broken Railroad is a relatively small map, but does feature a number of key locations:
- Broken Bridge
- Hunter's Blind
- Hunting Lodge
- Maintenance Shed
- Maintenance Yard
- Locomotive Engine
- Rickety Foot Bridge
Prior to Rugged Sentinel, the winding path and footbridge was inaccessible except by scaling the rocks.
An anchor point ( initially with no deployed mountaineering rope) leads into a ravine along the western side of the region, where the stream terminates. An abundance of items may be found below, including: hunting rifle, rifle ammunition, frozen corpse, wolf carcass, 2 deer carcasses and cattails. Beneath the Broken Bridge is a bin likely containing wood, food or fire starting tools. The climb back out is long: requiring high fatigue, resting at the ledge mid-climb, sleeping in a bedroll, or using an emergency stim to complete and not be trapped.
The bed in the Maintenance Yard office can be used to cure Cabin Fever.
