Need info on generic railroad rank titles!

Unread postby lordziba » Tue Apr 03, 2007 6:13 am

He-hey! I am currently watching an interesting, Japanese sci-fi, anime – called Galaxy Railways. Kind of fascinating concept, imagine that humanity (and aliens) colonize a good chunk of their known universe, and a bureau in charge of space travel between those planets based on old railroad rather space/air line system. So, my question is, what would be generic rank for railroad personnel and what kind of rank title would for defense/militia/security forces that protected the railways. Furthermore, was any in real life incidents where the railroad defense played a role in a war?

Thank u ahead, Ziba! smilies-04

E8-Senior Detective Sergeant
E7-Detective Sergeant
E6-Patrol Sergeant
E5-Staff Sergeant

American Civil War had raids on railroad stations and raids to destroy tracks and trains.

ex. the raid of the pro Confederate Missouri Bushwackers on the pro Union Kansas Jayhawks at Centralia, Missouri; this incident was depicted in the 1999 movie "Ride with the Devil"and the 1970s "The Outlaw Josie Wales". Union Cavalry also launched many raids into Confederate territory to rip up tracks and such.
