Does the rail link from Birkenhead to Ellesmere Port score Red

...6 VPs because of the virtual link?
...or only score 2 VP?

We know the Virtual link can't be built on as a link itself. So we're unsure how to score it. Especially since the canal age link would have scored 5 VP.

We have played it so that you get 2 points.

Yeah, we play it's 2 points, since it's a different city. Treat the virtual link only as extending a Liverpool presence to Birkenhead for purposes of playing a ship industry card (and that card only).

Edit: Note than you also cannot ship coal across the virtual link.

Birkenhead has never had so much publicity. Martin Wallace should contact their tourist office for his cut of the profits.

The maximum score is 2 VP's in the Rail Period and 5 VP's on the Canal period (in a 4 player game).

In that example above you would only score 2VP's because Ellesmore Port doesn't connect with Liverpool at the Rail period.

The link from Ellesmere Port to Liverpool can NEVER affect the score of the link from Birkenhead to Ellesmere Port.

Okay, now it makes sense. It's a link, so the two cities are seperate for scoring purposes as well. Thank you everyone!
