7.7 - Must the maximum possible revenue be claimed?

The answers in this section are based on statements in the rules about whether the maximum possible revenue must be declared, which in some rules is referred to as making the 'best possible use' of a company's trains. Unless otherwise stated, any player may demonstrate a better revenue total than that proposed by the Director/President, which must then be taken. As only those people playing the game should be bound by the rules, it is up to individual groups of players to decide whether non-playing observers should be entitled to do the same.

1812, 1830, 1841, 1849, 1851, 1861, 18Dixie Yes. Players are not required to point out a higher revenue total than that claimed.

1844 Yes. {The rules make no comment, but the designer's FAQ states that the highest paying route must always be used, and that it is not permitted to claim lower paying routes in order to activate mountain railways and tunnel companies}
1873 You must run the maximum possible number of routes, and you must run all routes to their ends. No requirement is present to maximise revenue.
1895 Yes, but a lower revenue may be claimed if the president chooses to run via a mine. In this case the run must be the maximum possible including the mine.
1899 Yes, but a lower revenue may be claimed if a better Mail run can thereby be claimed.
