Track connect HQ capital to the capitals of all regions. Resourses are being gathered from areas in a provinces and sent to provincial capitals automatically. Afterward, if your HQ connect to provincial capitals, resources will be transported to your HQ and get counted in your ledger thus eligible to be spent.

A particular tactic is to connect to (one) area with mines in the region to gather its resources since you have trouble with capture its provincial capital (e.g: recover an invaded mine from cultist but the province still belong to psionics)

It is possible to build more tracks than 40, but this is enough to connect most bases in the world, and is fairly costly to upkeep.   This really highlights the importance of having knowledge buildings in provinces with rare resources. Later in the game when you start being attacked and losing provinces to propaganda you may want to build in safeguards into your track system.  By having a continuous track that runs round the entire world, losing one link should not lose you any bases as they are connected to Stuttgart by going the other way round the world.  While this will increase the upkeep slightly, through having more track, it reduces the disruption when you get attacked.Track costs do not vary with game difficulty, though resource production from mines does fall when you play on harder difficulty levels
