Typically if you have rail service that has an 8 min interval with 2 trains, that means the trip takes apx 8 minutes in addition to the possible 8 minute wait, giving you an average of 12 minutes from station to station.  Factor in time for product to travel to and from station and you can easily exceed the 20 min rule.

Until you have massive production from a mill, make smaller cheaper trains 1-2 cars and shorter distances.  Use trucks to help offset the time it takes from the Mill to the platform if there’s any distance.  even 1 lone truck can reduce travel time significantly, plus u make profit from the truck and train now.
