So, even though the Chittagong to Madras route is 8 trains long (which the chart doesn't show), it scores no more than a 6-train rout?
The Chittagong-Madras route is 8 trains long - therefore, it scores 21 points. A 6-train route only scores 15 points, so the 8-train route does indeed score more points as it needs more trains.
Click on the link in my previous post, you'll see the points for routes of different lengths:
A route consisting of 1 train = 1 point
2 trains = 2 points
3 trains = 4 points
4 trains = 7 points
6 trains = 15 points
8 trains = 21 points.
Notice that there is no 5-train route in this version.
