The Weird West
A subsidiary of Hellstromme Ironworks, the Bee Line runs west from Salt Lake City to the Colorado Rockies. For most of its history, the railroad has served as a means of quickly funneling raw materials from Hellstromme’s mines at the foot of the Wasatch mountains to his factories in the City O’ Gloom.
However, recently the Bee Line has made a push towards the Rocky Mountains. Rumor has it, Hellstromme has found a cost-effective way to tunnel through the mountains and is looking to take his railroad all the way to Denver and beyond, bypassing The Five Great Railroads.
The Bee Line is known for heavy (often heavy-handed) security provided by private contractors. So far, the only person crazy enough to rob a Bee Line train has been The Mad Arab.
