My copy came with what I presume is the normal pair of blank rail car markers, which are normally not used in the game (unless I missed something).

Use the blank rail car markers and mix them into the deck. They represent strikes by railroad workers.

If one of the blank markers is in the zero Guilder space when the countdown marker is moved, remove that Rail Strike marker from the game and slide all the other rail cars down.

Interesting idea; thanks! I see that this would force players sometimes, and temporarily, to spend a little more to purchase a desired rail car (because the empty car is hogging a slot). Do you allow players to purchase the empty rail car to resolve the strike (which might be worth it, if you had enough money and really, really wanted a particular rail car)?

Sure, but it still counts as the one car you are allowed to buy with the action.
