I'm curious about something, and maybe there's something I've misunderstood about the rules.
The share value track goes as high as 30. However, as far as I can tell through experimenting, the most valuable company that can be built would be in the northwest corner towards Brest for a share value of 23. That's with 31 trains (the other two on the Paris start hex, the other on the scoring track).
Am I missing something?

I'm not going to count to check whether your 23 is exactly correct, but it is a reasonable number.
I suspect that a graphic designer thought that a score track which went up to exactly 23 would look ugly. It would also preclude minor expansions that tweaked valuations slightly.

Your sea is so great and my boat is so small.
Not sure but I used it effectively as a teaching tool the other day.
There are only 31 trains in play. I gave the example of scoring of considering the extremes to illustrate the goal.
If a train has 30 connections and you have 1 share = 30 pts
If a train has 1 connection and you have 30 shares = 30 pts
If a train has 15 connections and you have 16 shares = 240 pts
Thus, having too many connections is suboptimal and having too many shares is suboptimal. You need to find a balance.
