2.4 - Does the bank pool have a per-company share limit?

1800, 1825, 1829, 1829 Mainline, 1830BC, 1853, 1853 v2, 1854, 1860, 1862EA, 1873, Poseidon, Rolling Stock No.
1812, 1826, 1827 Jr., 1830, 1832, 1837, 1844, 1842, 1848, 1850, 1851, 1856, 1858, 1861, 1865 Sardinia, 1870, 1889, 1895, 18Ardennes, 18C2C, 18Dixie, 18EC, 18EU, 18EZ Levels 2 and 3, 18FL, 18GA, 18Mex, 18MS, 18MW, 18Neb, 18NL, 18Rhl Rhineland, 18Ruhr, 18TN, 2038, Steam Over Holland 50%.
1824 50%, but note that there is no separate bank pool. After shares are sold to the bank they are treated the same as new shares.
1831 5 certificates.
1835, 1838 Rheinland 50% - but bear in mind that the rules indicate this is checked before selling shares, after which you may sell as many shares as you wish in one block. This can result in more than 50% of the shares in the pool.
1837SX 60%.
1841, 1849, 1898, 18Scan 50%. But more can get there as the result of an emergency money-raising step.
1846 50%, or more due to a bankruptcy. A President that owns just the President's certificate can sell 'half' of this to the bank, exchanging certificates with the incoming President.
1862 5 certificates (so 50% or 25%), or more due to a bankruptcy.
1876v2 5 certificates, or more by 'panic selling'.
1880, 1893, 18PA No. There is no bank pool.
18EZ Level 1 Not Applicable (no share dealing).
18GL 50%, or more due to bankruptcy or the formation of CONRAIL.
18NY 50%. If a company is selling shares, 50% or the number of shares held by players, whichever is lower.
18US No, but the President's certificate may never enter the bank pool.
18VA 50%, can be exceeded when companies convert to ten-share companies.
18West No, but the Presidents's certificate may never go back into the bank pool once purchased.
Crisis 50% for type I companies, 60% for type II companies. Applies to bank sales only.

[The bankruptcy rules for 1826, 1835, 1837 and 18EU (and probably 1842 and 1847, though it's less clear there) allow more than 50% of a company to end up in the pool if someone goes bankrupt. In 1835, 1837, 1842 and 1847 it is essentially impossible to go bankrupt without a deliberate effort.]
