Deadlands Reloaded: The Weird West
Dixie Rails Railroad
Dixie Rails was owned in part by retired General Robert E. Lee now deceased. The company is now both managed and owned by his nephew, Fitzhugh Lee. Like Joshua Chamberlain of Union Blue, both uncle and nephew thought it their patriotic duty to secure the riches of the Great Maze for their own struggling country. The Lees chose to build their railroad along the border so that it could be used to quickly shuttle Confederate troops along the frontier in times of war.
Fitzhugh Lee is privy to the Confederacy’s greatest secrets, however, and his close ties to the Confederate administration allow them to test secret Rebel war machines from Roswell. A few of their war trains rival those of even Darius Hellstromme. In the Rebel tradition, Dixie Rails has fewer secret devices, but the ones they have are top quality.
Dixie Rails makes most of its money contracting out to the Confederacy. The railroad’s greatest obstacle to winning the Great Rail Wars is that Fitzhugh is nowhere near as crafty as his uncle Robert was. When Fitzhugh is left to his own devices, the railroad struggles along at a moderate pace.
