Transporting goods can sometimes be a pain due to the weight that certain items bring, which causes your ships to be filled up faster than you would expect them to be.
If you need an early-game transport ship, the Trader Railstar may be an option that you may want to check out as it does not cost as much as most ships.
Featuring a larger cargo capacity with decent speed, the Trader Railstar can be a useful ship when it comes to collecting resources or transporting them.

Trader Railstar Ship Overview
The Trader Railstar is not that different from most Class-A ships but it does have a large cargo capacity and a decent engine to transport your goods.
When it comes to combat, the Trader Railstar might not be as efficient in a fight as other Class-A ships, until you equip new weapons and the components to support them.
The defenses of this ship are one of the best features of the Trader Railstar, combining enough hull health and shields to get you through most tough situations.
It has the following parts:
- Shinigami Dangan PB RF Autocannon
- Shinigami Tsukisasu 13K Missile Launcher
- Reladyne White Dwarf 3000 Engine
- Protectorate Systems Mardux 1010-A Shield Generator
- Deep Core Helios 100 Grav Drive
- Amun Dunn 350T Stellarator Reactor
Trader Railstar Stats
The Trader Railstar features a high storage capacity with good hull and shield health for a Class-A ship, providing you with good mobility and survivability.
It may not have the furthest jump distance but this can be replaced later since the fuel capacity is enough for further grav jumps.
You may want to equip the ship with additional weapons just in case you get into a fight with other ships since its stock weapons may not be enough to take on tougher foes.
The Trader Railstar features shielded cargo, which gives you a good chance to sneak contraband through certain systems when you are scanned.
An honest opinion about this ship is that it is not the best when it comes to battles in space but a few more weapons or alterations can help it out.
One of the best things about the Trader Railstar is that it has a shielded capacity of 160, which is good enough to smuggle a few items in and out of certain locations.
The price of 93125 may be quite high for most ships but if you have already dabbled in selling goods and even contraband items, you might be able to purchase this earlier.
