Prototype Information:
A freight train or goods train is a group of freight cars (US) or goods wagons (International Union of Railways) hauled by one or more locomotives on a railway, transporting cargo all or some of the way between the shipper and the intended destination as part of the logistics chain. Trains may haul bulk material, intermodal containers, general freight or specialized freight in purpose-designed cars. Rail freight practices and economics vary by country and region.

During the transition era, steam engines were heavily used by smaller railroads which relied upon secondhand motive power from the Class-I's. During the postwar years, it was fairly uncommon for these railroads to get their hands on modern diesels and furthermore secondhand steam power was both plentiful and cheap.
