Cargo haul distance table

Recommended Posts

Is there a list somewhere for each different type of cargo what the ideal haul distance is (short, medium, long)?

"Ideal" can vary depending on other factors like train speed, economic level, demand etc. Also, there's more than one ideal, depending on how many trains you have to fill. Your profit margin may be higher if you don't haul pax coast-to-coast, but you'll keep your trains full (and adding some value) for longer if you haul as far as possible.

Someone around here did some testing a few years ago. I think the results are buried in one of the old threads. You'll have to do some searching for terms like rot factor and distance.

However, for just a general idea of which are "long" and which are "short", you should have some files that came with the game. Look in the appendices.
