Falls Church/Mason Dst Metro, or Franklin Station, is a Metro station, and a stop on the Blue Line. This station is east of Falls Church Metro and west of Minuteman Metro. Like all stations, the subway tunnels are destroyed. The subway tracks ran east to west. On the westbound track, to the east of the platform, a track coming from the south-east intersects. A secured door for Franklin Metro Utility is located on this track. The platform is buried under debris, while the mezzanine has been converted into a Raiders camp. Station lobby is pretty much intact. On the lobby level, there is a restroom, The DCTA Status Monitor identifies this station as currently active.

This station is one of two metro stations accessed at the Falls Church Metro location on the World Map. The entrance to the Falls Church/Mason Dst Metro is on the eastern end of the Falls Church Metro marker. The entrance to the Marigold Station tunnels is at the west end.


Sometime in the early 22nd century, technicians working for RobCo Industries installed a newer version of the Unified Operating System into the new mainframe.

Much later, a gang of Raiders constructed a camp on the Mezzanine. Feral Ghouls moved in seeking shelter. Both factions now compete over the mezzanine and platform.


The platform near the Mason District exit to Hubris Comics is home to a Raider base that is usually under siege from a group of Feral Ghouls. Depending on the character's level, the Raider leader may be armed with a Flamer, and there may be a Glowing One (or more) accompanying the Ghouls. If the Broken Steel add-on is installed there may even be a Feral Ghoul Reaver or two among the pack, likely making short work of the Raiders. Broken Steel can add an enormous number of Feral Ghoul Reavers. You can encounter around 10 Reavers if you're unlucky! Although less dangerous, there are a small number of Radroaches and Mole Rats lurking throughout the station.
