Marcus Fenix and Dom at Timgad station during the Lightmass Offensive.

"Marcus, we've lost control of the train! Now you'll have to catch it as it passes through Timgad Station."
—Lt. Anya Stroud telling Delta-One that General RAAM took over Tyro Pillar

Timgad Station was one of the many hubs that Mag-lev trains, such as the Tyro Pillar, passed through. It was located in Timgad East, and was a short drive away from East Barricade Academy. This station saw much action in the late hours of the Lightmass Offensive.


Lightmass Offensive[]

Near the end of the Lightmass Offensive, the Tyro Pillar was scheduled to pass through Timgad Station while on its way to deploy the Lightmass Bomb.[1] However, the Locust hijacked the train,[2] and sent a large number of soldiers to the station to prevent Delta-One from getting on board. When Delta arrived at the station, they took out several snipers and closed several Emergence Holes around the station. As the train passed through, Sgt. Marcus Fenix and Pvt. Dominic Santiago managed to jump aboard, but Pvt. Damon Baird and Pvt. Augustus Cole were unable to make it.[3] They were picked up from the station by a King Raven.[4]
