Does the movement cost to cross a straight double in rain (from +1 to +2)?

The specific case is a unit crossing from Istambul to Scutari in rain and playing with the reduced movement cost through rail-lines optional rule. How many movement points does it cost?

Rain doubles the terrain cost, not the crossing arrow cost. But you do NOT get the -1 for moving along the rail.

So, Istanbul to Scutari in rain is 3 movement points (1 MP doubles to 2, add +1 for strait for 3).

So, to summarize:

Terrain in rain remains twice main terrain; will gain not from a train.

Plain?

In Spain we find this kind of humor tasteless

Actually, I find it quite amusing.
