I can confirm that the under-10-minutes trains still happily haul cargo, although mainly for raw materials, it seems less happy doing so with goods – the amount (and hence the production of the factory) tends to fall off when you swap to trains…

One thing to remember, though – in the 1800’s, the trains are much faster than the road alternative, so despite being more expensive, they can still be highly useful. Another thing to remember, they DO like more frequent hauls when possible, so rather than double-headering trains, it might be better to swap to 2 trains instead. I found myself triple-headering an iron ore train early on and suddenly found myself wondering why the heck I was doing so when I could be running 3 smaller trains instead, so ensuring a much smoother income and supply.
