Early in the Second Tiberium War, rail transport was used by both GDI and Nod in the southern United States theater of operations. One mission during that war saw GDI forces, under the command of McNeil, capture a Nod train station that was being used to evacuate artifacts from a crashed Scrin ship. The train that the GDI forces captured was later destroyed by a Nod defensive fortification (laser defenses) in the following mission.
Several Nod missions involved capturing or disabling trains.
Command & Conquer: Generals saw railway technology still based on old railway technology, even steam locomotives is still used widely. The railway might be significant in few missions, from deploying troops to stopping enemy deployments. It is noted that the railway is durable enough to handle heavy cargo such as the Chinese Overlord tank.
