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

Return enough to the bank pool to get down to the train limit.

[JC is using language more precisely than I did. When I said "bank pool" the term in the rules is "Open Market".]

I think I read somewhere there is a difference between the train store and the bank?

Not sure if it matters, but is that true?

2.0: ...The game starts in Phase 2. ... Phase 3 starts on the purchase of the first 3-Train. ... Phase 4 starts on the purchase of the first 4-train. ... Phase 5 starts on the purchase of the first 5-train. ...

6.7: ... New trains are purchased from the Bank in the order they appear at the top of the train stack. Trains in the Open Market may also be purchased from the Bank at face value.
...
If a phase change includes a reduction in the Train Limit, all Public Companies, including the one operating, must immediately discard any trains Limit to the Open Market.
...


7.0: ... If a company is above its train limit at any time, it must put excess trains of its choice in the open market. ...
