Raccoon City Subway

Raccoon City Subway during the outbreak incident.

The Kite Brothers Railway was the subway rail service used by the industrious midwestern town of Raccoon City.[1]

HistoryEdit

It was developed by brothers Oral and Werner Kite in the 1960s, and was opened in April 1969.[1] When it first opened, it ran on only one mile of track, with three stops. Thanks to the "bright 21st century" plan set up by Mayor Michael Warren, which was funded by Umbrella, the company received enough funding to add another five stations and seven-and-a-half more miles of track.[1]

By September 1998, the subway had stations at South Raccoon Street,;[2] New Lock Square[2] and Main Street.[3][4] Another platform was located underneath the Raccoon University, though was not used for commercial usage.

During the Raccoon City Destruction Incident, employee Jim Chapman led a group of survivors in the subway to escape the zombie hordes above ground, not knowing the station and tunnels had been taken over by infected creatures called Megabites. Without human control, at least one train on the line crashed.
