At the end of the game, every player takes one last grand tour on the colored line matching his oval token (can't remember what it was called) given to him at the beginning of the game. The rules say to score this as a normal grand tour. I don't see the sense in this. In a four player game, 4 of the 5 lines would score, so it doesn't seem like it would play much into the strategy. I suppose you could get unlucky and have a lot of your businesses laid out along the line that wasn't scored. I was wondering if it meant on the last grand tour, that you only score for your businesses. Any ideas?

The scores can be very close in this game. If you don't score well in the last grand tour, that could cost you the game.

So am I reading it correctly - on the last grand tour do you score as normal or only for yourself?

Score it as normal. You want to try to discern which routes will score based on how everybody is playing.

My favorite 18xx game for six players is two games of 1846 with three players each.

On BSW you can use the "German tournament rules" in which every line has one last grand tour at the end. I think it's meant to take randomness out of the game.
