Question by chicago2210: What is the difference between a through freight train and a local freight train?
What is the difference between a local freight train and a through freight train? Please let me know thank you.
Answer by Gunslinger
A through freight travels across a full subdivision with out stopping and a local freight stops to pick up or set out cars along the way. Most Unit trains (ex. coal, potash, or inter-model), are through freight. Were as a local freight will be a mix of anything.

We caught the train for our return trip to downtown Skagway. There’s a stop at the trail head, but no station or platform.
