NOTE: Some railroads build their own freight cars and cabooses for their own use.

Yet another spin on :iconborisfedorov:'s ideas. This time, we are dealing with the idea of how I'd have freight trains work.

The trains would be going 125mph on the the long lines more then one state or a small region like New England. These are the engines working them.

B-B wheel arrangement road switchers:
top speed 90mph, 
Slow Goods on long lines (2 to 6 units), work on Medium (one state) lines (2 to 4) and maintenance and yard switching work (1 unit)

C-C wheel arrangement road switchers:
top speed 125mph, 
Fast freight (2 to 6 units)

2-8-0 steam engines:
top speed 80 mph
local freights

2-8-2 steam engines: 
top speed 100mph
Fast freight

2-8-4 steam engines:
top speed 100mph
Fast freight

10-coupled steam engines:
top speed 90 mph
slow goods

articulated steam engines:
top speed 90mph
fast freight
slow goods

How about in addition, some railroads build their own freight cars and cabooses.
