I realize this is picking tiny nits, but I was reading the 1846 rule book and I found some ambiguity in different rules referring to the Token spot reserved for the C&WI private and the bonus token that goes there when it is bought in.
1846 Rule book page 2 wrote:
The Chicago & Western Indiana Railroad ($60 price, $10 income) reserves a token placement in Chicago for its purchasing corporation, as indicated on the yellow (preprinted) and green Chicago tiles. If this company is in play, no token may be placed in this city space until the C&WI is purchased or removed. Upon being purchased, place an additional token of its purchasing corporation at no cost on this city space, unless this corporation already has a token in Chicago.
1846 Rule book page 6 wrote:
The various Chicago tiles all depict several distinct cities. A corporation can not have more than one token in Chicago (remove one if this occurs due to the C&WI).
Chicago & Western Indiana card wrote:
Reserves a token slot in chicago (D5), in which the owning corporation may place an extra token at no cost.
So, a few specific questions:
1) If a corporation already has a token in Chicago when it buys in the C&WI, does it A) Keep its existing token, B) Move its existing token to the C&WI spot or C) Choose between A and B?
2) Regardless of the answer to 1, does the corporation in question get to put an extra token on its charter, or does it just lose out on the fact that the C&WI normally increases the total number of tokens that a corporation will get by one.
3) May a corporation buy in the C&WI but choose not to place the token immediately?
4) If (due to 1A, the answer to 3 being yes, or some other reason) The C&WI spot is still empty after the C&WI is bought in, may another railroad buy a token in that spot A) Immediately or B) After the C&WI closes at the start of phase 3?
