Contraband

Says they rebuild rails faster. How is this relevant when rails are built in 1 turn or they are not. Only thing I can think of is that if your railing someone through a line that's broken maybe it gets built faster but then my question is how fast are rails built with them and without them?

Funny, but true, what difference do they make. They are much like engineers, they speed entrenchment and other building. You have likely never seen when a repair rail does not fire.

Repairing rail takes a certain amount of days, afaik, not a turn. So getting the job done and still have enough days left to enter another region might well make a difference.

Has anybody ever done testing on this? How many days does it speed up the process. Also, would a division repair a rail faster than a Regiment?

I set a contraband unit in Baltimore and a Brigade combat unit in Philly to repair a rail line and then move to an adjacent region. Both rail lines were repaired. However, neither unit was able to accomplish this and move to an adjacent region in the same turn. No bad weather was present.

On a second run through, both repaired their rail line and moved to the adjacent region. It actually appeared that the Brigade was faster at repairing the rails.

I'm thinking it was more of a historical "flavour" unit. They played part of a role
in the war so perhaps the next iteration can fine toon it.
