We felt it was a little too punishing when a person is unable to obtain any station card on their turn. This happens when you've already used your switch track token. So we house ruled that when you fail to obtain a card on your turn and you don't have your switch track token, you get it back. This only applies if you don't get any cards. If you got one and fail on the second, you don't get your token back.

This keeps the pace of the game moving forward as well as helps players stay in the game, so they don't fall so far behind. In the games we played, one player had two null turns and there was just no way for them to catch up and have any possibility of winning.

Glad you think so! When I've taught the game to friends, I incorporated this rule and they really appreciated it.
