Tommy Whispers is a deceased member of the Railroad in the Switchboard in 2287.


Tommy Whispers, a "heavy" agent for the Railroad, started off as a B team scout.[1] In 2281, he discovered an old DIA facility in Lexington, codenamed "Switchboard," which would later serve as the HQ for the Railroad.[1] He was mentored by Glory and eventually became a heavy agent himself in 2282 and was gifted a custom pistol by Tinker Tom.[2]

In 2287, the Switchboard was discovered by the Institute and was attacked by a large number of synths.[3] In the ensuing carnage, Tommy closed the door to a secret prototype - protecting it from the invading synths, but sacrificing himself.[4] His corpse is later discovered by the Sole Survivor and Deacon in search for the prototype.
