#1 I must be missing something here.
It seems a waste of munitions to shoot at a freight train.
Possibly practice for shooting at a troop or passenger train?

#3 Redneck Jim, I have the impression they don't want anything to come through from the outside. If they can discourage innocuous freight trains, the really bad stuff from the modern world won't even try. (And I use the word modern here advisedly.)
