What the heck is going on here?

For the last half hour I have been sitting here watching trucks come and go from my trade port.  What I've seen is that most of the time trucks from my trade port, which is set to import processors (only has processor storage lots), are carrying around ore, coal, etc. and I'd OCCASIONALLY see a truck importing processors.  This trade port also has a rail connection and in the time I was watching I didn't see a single train.  With 2 trade ports each with 3 filled processor storage lots I set them to export.  Once all the processors were gone I looked at my electronics hq only to find that I still couldn't upgrade it (only said 1,306,000 daily profit) even though I made over 2.5 million from the exports.


My questions are:

Why are trucks from my trade port carrying around other resources?

Do trains actually import/export or are they just decorative?

Why can't I upgrade my electronics hq?

I have noticed the same thing...I think the train comes every three hours...it does keep pretty much to that schedule once I figure it out I go back and check and see it drop off and pick up


One tip....trade HQ and whatever speciallity HQ you have...there is really no point to having them turned on you can still up grade without them on...only reason mine are on currently is I needed to provide people with medium wealth jobs so that was an easy fix...and my city makes tons of money so my taxes are at 4 percent across the board and my hourly income is -90k


one tip i read on here that I used and it helped was not having any freight warehouses at any trade depot I depend on for my income...have one set aside just for that otherwise your trucks will be tied up delivering stuff your not profitting from
