[Solved] How many trains are sent to identically named stations when same limit is set in each station?

How many trains are sent to identically named stations when same limit is set in each station?

Eg 2 stations with same name, the train limit in each of the stations is set to 2 and there are 10 possible trains with that station name as next stop.

Will 2 trains go to each of the stations or 1 to each of the stations?

Yes. Limit is per train stop, not per name.

But I think that the closer station will be priorized over the other station.

The game determines how “far” a station is based on a penalty system, where more signals means a higher penalty, and trains seek the lowest penalty route. This means that nearer stops are prioritized over further stops. However, more trains than the limits allow will cause the further stations to be serviced as well.
