When building the tracks, I've been using the trains from our stash behind the screen instead of from the general supply. The game seems to work fine like that. How different is it to play it correctly?

Massively. Being unable to easily shed bad shares is a big part of the timing. You let people dump shares they don't want and not let them become available for others.

LOL laugh

You just invented a completely different game.

I don't want to sound mean (sorry), but this is the funniest rules-mistake I've ever read. You might as well have the player with the least money/points win at the end of the game.

If you're playing that way, you're not playing Paris Connection. And you should play Paris Connection, because it's fantastic.
