I got gold on this, but it was a while back. You'll need to experiment, firstly. Don't overload your smaller engines, either. More to come if I load up my save and remember things.
Alright I can't edit my post so I'll make a new one. I didn't put more than 4 cars on any of my trains(3 cars when hauling weapons), and it worked well for me. Also look at where your trains are positioned on the map and deploy them to maximize efficiency. I would try not to deploy them to far-away areas, and I would make sure they are adequately serviced on your routes. Try to start supplying the frontline territories ASAP.

You will likely lose one or two territories. There are five territories you need to defend to start with: two in the north and three in the south. I lost the two southernmost territories, and I may have intentionally sacrificed them to buy more time and supply the territories right behind them. Particularly the territory closest to Moscow. It'll be longer to get supplies to Murmansk and the other northern territory, but it's possible to hold on to them.

You may also want to use the cargo flags to collect cargo more efficiently, or to use one train to store cargo at another station where a second train promptly hauls it to the frontline. IIRC there's a fixed amount of supplies available, so you MIGHT have to adjust your routes accordingly. And of course, if a territory is captured you lose the track and probably the trains in that territory.

Good luck.

Also consult the strategy guide in the game directory if you need more help.
