This is our resource stockpile.
Money, Labour, Iron, Horses, Weapons, Railroad capacity.
Money, Labour, Iron, Horses and Weapons will be changed by our current national income every turn.
If you have an iron output of +10 and you have a stockpile of 90, next turn you would have 100 iron (unless off course you spend iron on something).
Added to the national income is the effect of gifts from Europe, and the effect of your blockade runners.
Labour, Iron, Horses and Weapons stockpiles will cap at 500, while money will cap at 2000 (or is it 2500?).
Railroad capacity however is different. This will refill to its maximum every turn, so at this moment 10 is the maximum for the Confederacy, next turn it will remain at 10, it will not be at 20. If I want to increase my railroad capacity, I will need to build railroads in my cities. Every railroad will give +5 to the max ammount of railroad capacity.
And I bet you are thinking, well that is all nice, but what is it used for?
See that greyed out button that says "use Rail move"? If you press that one, you will order your units to travel by train instead of by foot. This can speed up movement greatly. However 10 railroad capacity is not alot. 1 point of railroad capacity allows ONE brigade to travel ONE territory. So to move an army over several provinces by railroad might require a railroad capacity of several hundred.
