This is part one of a three-part series looking at how freight trains have grown from humble beginnings to become an expensive business.

Cargo trains The freight train was the first rail freight train to be built in Australia, and for many years it was Australia’s fastest and most profitable way to move goods.
As the cost of transporting goods has risen, freight trains also have become the most popular form of transport for Australians.
Rail freight trains The largest freight trains in Australia today are the Cargo Train and Rail Car freight trains.
These are made of a composite frame and are designed to carry up to 600 tonnes of cargo.
They are often referred to as “rail freight” trains.
Transport by rail Transport by train trains is a form of passenger railway where the trains run on rails to carry goods.
The trains are often known as “by rail” trains because they use a rail-based design.
Rail cars Cargo trains and rail cars are similar in design to the freight trains, but they are made from a composite material.
They can carry up 30 tonnes of goods per hour.
The cars also have extra cargo space, so they are able to accommodate extra goods or passengers.
The world’s most expensive rail carsThe world’s second-most expensive rail car, the BNSF BNS-100, is currently used on many international trains.
It has an estimated value of $1.4 billion.
The future of rail freight trainsThe rail freight railway has been around for some time, and is still very popular with freight train companies.
The Australian Rail Transport Group has recently announced it will build more than 60 new rail freight freight trains from 2017 to 2027, but it is unlikely these trains will be the only rail freight rail car to appear in Australia.
How much do freight trains cost?
Freight trains are made up of a pair of rails that connect two platforms on either side of a railway car.
They use an iron-framed frame to support the rails and they can be up to 400 metres long.
The rail car then uses a steel or aluminium structure to carry cargo.
What is the freight train price?
The freight train company is the seller of the goods.
For each tonne of goods bought by a freight train, the buyer is entitled to pay a freight charge of $7.50.
If the freight charge is over the freight rail limit, the freight price is set at the freight limit.
Why are goods on freight trains expensive?
The cost of freight trains is higher than most other modes of transport.
As well as the cost to transport goods, freight costs are also a factor in deciding whether or not a company will invest in its infrastructure.
How to choose the right freight train The most expensive freight train in Australia is the BNPS BNS100 freight train.
The BNS 100 is currently the most expensive passenger train in the world.
It costs $9.8 million.
What are the benefits of a freight freight train?
Freight freight trains are a way for businesses to move around large numbers of goods and have higher profits.
How do freight rail cars differ from rail cars?
Rail car transport is much more expensive than freight freight rail trains because rail cars have more weight and have more track capacity.
Rail car transport also requires extra infrastructure, such as power lines, which can cost an extra $2.50 per kilometre.
How is the cost per tonne different between freight trains?
Freights can be classified into two different types, rail car and rail car.
Rail trains are constructed using steel or aluminum structures.
Railcars are built using composite materials.
How many freight train cars do you need to operate?
Currently, freight rail is made up only of rail cars and the B-Rail BNSB100 freight rail train, but in the future freight trains could be built up to 100 per cent of the BBSF BBS100 freight car.
How long does it take to build a freight railcar?
Rail cars can be built over several years depending on the needs of the company.
How does a freight railway work?
Freay rail cars consist of a single rail car with two or more rails on either end.
The rails are designed in such a way that they can carry as much as 60 tonnes of freight per hour, but can be more than 500 metres long if needed.
The main part of the rail car is usually the bottom rail, which is made of aluminium or steel and has a diameter of up to 80 centimetres.
The second part of a rail car has a length of up
