I played my first game on Tuesday evening and there was a little confusion about how a player should score when he creates a loop.

I interpreted the rule as a player scores one point for every enclosed station, but the one person in the group who had played before (and happened to be scoring for it)had interpreted it as only the gold-coloured stations within the loop because the illustrated example shows only gold-coloured stations scoring.

We overruled him and gave him eight points instead of the four or five he was claiming; but can anybody tell us if we played correctly?

It's one point for each station inside the loop, irrespective of what kind of station it is - so it's not just gold & white stations but also any enclosed National Rail stations and Connection Stations.

Steve is correct. Every station INSIDE the loop score you points.

Ah, I forgot to include the National Rail stations in my last game. I should've lost by a few points less...

On page three of the rules, it says (emphasis added by me):

Quote:
When building track, points are awarded as follows:
* One point when a line connects to a national rail station.
* Two points and a branch token when a line connects to a Terminus.
* Three points when two connection stations showing the same Symbol are joined using one line.
* One point for each station contained inside, but not part of, a loop created by one line.


From this, it seems clear to me that blue and green stations count when scoring loops.
