The rules talk about track limits per city hex but don't talk about non-city hex limits that I can see. We weren't sure if you were limited to a single track in a non-city hex (like a lot of other winsome cube rail games) or if you could build to the current tech level. We played that you could build to the tech level because the unlimited building in Chicago didn't seem to make sense otherwise.

Is this correct?

I found no restriction on non-city hex capacity in the rules. When you're reading a Bohrer rule book, if the restriction isn't there it doesn't exist. Also, if you're allowed to do something it will exist in the rulebook.

So for this question, we have two conditions.

1. You are allowed to build track in non-city hexes.
2. No building limit for the non-city hex is listed.

Therefore, there is no limit. Build away.

You can have any number of railroads occupying a non-city hex. The Chicago exception is in the rules because Chicago is a city hex but was a major hub for many railroads so it gets to ignore the normal x number of railroads in a city based on the tech level.

There is no limit for non-city hexes (and Chicago).
