"Where trains mean business"
Freight can be thought of as a bonus map. With CP_Steel progress slowing down towards the finish, Fishbus didn't want to just work on fixes for older maps, so he created something within a month to test out some of his optimization abilities, and to keep him familiar with firing out new ideas for maps.
The product of this is cp_freight. A map where trains mean business, literally. The map has an 'S' shaped structure with two rails running through the map, from each teams last point, towards the middle and then back towards the enemies base point. Unlike cp_well, the trains have been extended in size and slowed down, to make them more involved during a battle. The trains are random, and are quite happy to run over or frustrate RED or BLU equally.
The second and fourth point are inside the teams warehouse, slowing down a steamroll and bringing the fight indoors. It breaks the pace and of course, the surrounding environment.
So enjoy this simple and symmetrical control point map with a more involved train system.

Congrats on the pick up! I love the changes, fixed all my complaints from the earlier versions around the 2nd point. This has quickly become one of my favorite maps and one I 100% agree should have been picked up. Congrats again on all the success!
This map would be very funny 3rd and 1st point are good but the 2nd point need changes, the problem in my opinion is that only exit for scouts is the water and always is controlled, the scouts need another exit to sneak, the area in front of doors of second point and distance between doors and 3rd point is too small too.
I suggest increase the size of the area in front of doors and add a seccond floor in the second point must be 2 or 3 stairs to climb to the new floor, this floor have big windows and a balcony from them a scout can jump over enemy heads (to any column or box added for example) for escape and cap the 3rd point
This balcony add another exit for the defenders a good position for soldier/demo spam and is another alternative entrance for scouts and soldiers attackers
Thanks you for you work and this map
