What sort of freight do trains carry?
 
Almost anything that can be carried by truck can be carried by train. There are very few cold foods that go by train because those items have to be refrigerated and it is more expensive to transport cold food because of the refrigeration needed. Trains transport lumber, coal, logs, automobiles, feed, seed, oil, steel, sea containers that are imported and exported. the list goes on. Train transportation is cheaper than by truck but is actually slower than shipping by truck because of all of the stops the train has to make.

I am a truck driver that specializes in rail freight. So it is true mostly anything and everything. They even put truck trailers full of freight on the railcars then another truck picks it up near the customer. This is cheaper than driving the whole way. Today I took a load of diapers and feminine products that went from Chicago to California on a Norfolk Southern rail car. Yesterday all kinds of Proctor and Gamble products the same.
