The legend of Lee Christmas grew out of his amazing turn of luck and a fearless streak that led him to the brink of death many times over. In the United States, Christmas was a tramp railroader, taking positions at five different stations between 1880 and 1891. After being blacklisted by the railroad companies for three years, he applied again only to find out that his colorblindness left him unemployable as an engineer . . . except in Honduras.
