Shorttrain (de_shorttrain) is a Demolition map featured in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive.

On the November 13, 2017 update, the map was removed from the game files, making it inaccessible via console.


Shorttrain is a modified version of Train, reworked to include only bombsite A as a demolition map. The rest of the map is completely isolated and cannot be accessed. The Terrorist faction for this map is the Balkans and the Counter-Terrorist faction is the SAS.

Shorttrain begins with the Terrorists and the Counter-Terrorist on their original spawn positions in Train.

Shorttrain was briefly removed from demolition map group after Train was redesigned as of the December 10, 2014 patch, but was updated and re-added as part of the March 31, 2015 update.

Official Description
