There are very few cold foods that go by train, because these items must be refrigerated and it is expensive to transport food cold because of cooling requirements. Rail timber, coal, wood, vehicles, feed, seed, oil, steel, Sea Containers, which are imported and exported. the list is long. Rail transportation is cheaper than by truck, but is actually slower than shipping by truck because of all the train stops to do.

Almost anything that can be transported by truck can be transported by train. There are very few cold foods to go by train, as these items must be refrigerated and is more expensive to transport food cold due to cooling. Rail transportation of timber, coal, newspapers, cars, food, seeds, oil, steel, shipping containers and imported and exported. the list is long. Rail transport is cheaper than by truck, but is actually slower than the trucking industry because of all the stops that the train has to be done.

I know what you're talking about, they do stuff. But I only things on that you've seen time! ha and myself, I work in a rail yard! I'v been told that invites, there are very heavy, and never go very far, as it is not too far away from where they had picked up the fallen, which makes things in the middle ir stronger, and it is really ment for Milled wood, stuff.
