There's no price limit for non-emergency train purchases between companies other than at least $1 and no more than is in the buyer's treasury.
JC, what is is the most efficient way to work out different scenarios (other than in your head) quickly. Is there an excel format you use to test different scenarios or outcomes?
In your head is pretty good, though I also use a lot of paper and pencil. I tend to use spreadsheets only for longer scenarios or ones with many detailed moving pieces. The general problem in this case is that you're attempting to deduce intent, and that's really rough given player's high failure rates.
