To start making trains, you need to have some tasks pre-completed. First, you need to get to the Tier 6 milestone level. In Satisfactory, as you progress through the game, you will unlock more and more advanced technology to use and build that is locked behind tiers. There are eight tiers in total and range in complexity from your basic coal shoveling to nuclear power.

Once you make it to Tier 6, you will unlock the power to build trains. For an actual train to exist, you need to make a railway, which can be done using steel pipes and steel beams. You will need one of each for the first eighteen meters of railway you make and then one of each for every twelve after that. How big or how small your railway is depends on your personal preference and how you have your map setup.

What Train Stations Do

In addition, you also need a train station for the railway. Train stations pull the entire system together, providing an autopilot function and allowing freight trains to easily unload cargo. You can even make extra stations and set the train to stop only at certain ones.

Once you have those basics, you can go ahead and start building your train set. You can make it as long or as short as you like. Trains are fast, efficient, and provide a straightforward method of delivery.
