I can't find it in the rules or FAQ, but when exactly does a player lose ownership of a link he is not extending? Is it immediately at the end of his turn during the build track phase, or at the end of the phase before moving goods? It makes a pretty big difference, so any clarification would be most welcome.

They lose ownership of an incomplete link at the end of *THEIR* track-building phase in the turn in which they did not extend the link - which allows the very next player in track-building turn order to extend it and claim it for their own (unless they too lose control of it later, by not extending an incomplete link).

Players must extend an incomplete track in the following round. If they haven't done so, at the end of their turn, they lose ownership of it.

This means that players placing rail after them in the turn order may extend it if they meet the requirements.

I fail to see the "pretty big difference" since you can't move goods over incomplete links anyway. However, we played that the control is lost at the end of the building phase.

I was wrong, apparently.

I think the best way to look at it is that the links become unowned at the beginning of the player's build phase. During the build phase, the player may reclaim any of his incomplete links the same way he may claim links abandoned by others: By extending the track.
