I'm learning this game and also preparing this example for my Spanish translation at http://tinyurl.com/eueh4

So, I need some advice to avoid any mistake.



The legal routes for Southern Railway (SR), with stations on C and K hexes.

With 1 train #2:
CBA($40), KLJ($50), KIH($50), KIG($50), KPN($80), KMN($80)

With 1 train #3::
CBADEC($40), CBADEG ($50), KLJH($60), KIHG($60), KIGH($60), KIGEC($80), KIGEDA($60), NMKIG($90), NMKIH($90), NPKIG($90), NPKIH($90), NPKLJ($90), NMKLJ($90)

With 1 train #4:
CBADEGH($60), CBADEGIK($90), KLJHG($70), KIGHJ($70), NMKIHG($100), NMKIGEC($120), NMKIGEDA($120), NPKLJH($100), NPKIHG($100), NPKIGEC($120), NPKIGEDA($100), NMKLJH($100)

With 1 train #5:
CBADEGIKPN($130), CBADEGIKMN($130), CBADEGHJ($70), CBADEGHK($100), NPKLJHG(110), NMKLJHG($110)

With 2 trains #3:
* CBADEG($50) and KLJH($60);
* CBADEG($50) and KIHG($60);
* CBADEG($50) and KIGH($60);
* CBADEG($50) and NMKIG($90) or NMKIH($90) or NPKIG($90) or NPKIH($90).

With 2 trains #4:
CBADEGH($60) and NPKLJH($100)
CBADEGH($60) and NMKLJH($100)
CBADEGK($90) and KLJHG($70)
CBADEGK($90) and NPKLJH($100)
CBADEGK($90) and NMKLJH($100)

With 2 trains #5: none

With 3 trains #3:

* CBADEG($50), KLJH($60) and KIHG($60);
* CBADEG($50), NPKLJ($90) and NMKIH($90)
* CBADEG($50), NPKLJ($90) and NMKIG($90)


Everything OK? No more and no less than these routes?

PS.

No. You are counting the towns (black dots/bars) against the train limit. They count for revenue, but not for the train. A 2 Train runs between 2 Cities. For example,

CBADEGIK = $90
1

I concur that the small cities should not count towards the train limit. In addition, your routes have ignored the off-board city of Savannah, which should count against the limit.
As an example, one #2 could run Savannah-CBADEGHJ for $100 or $150, depending on the phase of the game.

Also note that trains are required to run for maximum revenue, I believe. So, enumerating only the 'best' runs for each train is as follows:

1x 2 train
ADEG(I)HJLK(M/P)N ($120)

1x 3-train
CBADEG(I)HJLK(M/P)N ($150)
or, if 5-trains are out,
Savannah-CBADEG(I)HJLK ($190)

1x 4-train
Savannah-CBADEG(I)HJLK(M/P)N ($180/$230, depending on phase)

1x 5-train
Same run as 4-train. Remember, hitting all the stops is always optional.

2x 2 train
NMKIH ($90) + ADEGHJLKPN ($120) = $210

2x 3 train
pre-5 trains
NMKIH ($90) + CBADEGHJLKPN ($150) = $240
post-5-trains
NMKIH ($90) + Sav-CBADEGHJLK ($190) = $280

2x4-trains
NMKIH ($90) + Sav-CBADEGHJLKPN ($180/$240) = $270/$330

etc.

cool?

Cool...thanks, but NMKIH is a 2 train route. When I was searching for 2x 3 train I was thinking in 3 train using all their potential of 3 cities (I understand is not mandatory for a #3 train to include 3 cities).
