4.1 - In what order do companies operate?

1812 Private companies, then Minor companies in descending order of share price, then Public companies in descending order of share price. If two companies occupy the same space, the company with a token on top operates next.
1824 Mountain Railways, Coal Railways, pre-Staatsbahnen, then major companies in dynamic share price order (See 'Rest' for details of this).
1825 Major companies in set order of initial value with ties broken by formation order, followed by minor companies from highest par value to lowest with ties broken by formation order.
1829, 1829 Mainline, 1853, 1853 v2 Set order.
1830 As for 'rest' below. However, note the special case of the three value '67' spaces one above the other in the same column. The rules resolve issues where more than one company is on the same priced space by giving preference to companies further to the right, which does not resolve this situation. It seems to be generally agreed that companies further up the chart run first.
1830BC Order of fewest shares in player hands; ties broken in set order.
1846, 18Neb Current 'dynamic' share price. By 'dynamic', this means that each time a company finishes operating, you look at the current stock price chart to see who is next. The highest value company that has not operated operates next. If two companies occupy the same space, the company with a token on top operates next. If two companies have the same value but are in different spaces, the company with a token furthest to the right operates next. For the first operating round only, this is reversed, with the companies operating from lowest to highest price.
1850 The rules simply state (4.1.2) that companies 'operate in share price order'. I have confirmed with John Tamplin that this works as current 'dynamic' share price, as stated under 'rest' below.
1858 Private companies in numerical order, then public companies in price order.
1861 Private companies, then Minor companies in descending order of share price, then Public companies in descending order of share price, then the Russian State Railway. If two companies occupy the same space, the company with a token on top operates next. If two companies have the same value but are in different spaces, the company with a token furthest to the right operates next.
1862 Current static price, i.e. in order of stock price as at the start of the operating round.
1880 In the order of the turn order list, the positions in this list being chosen by the Director at the time the company becomes operational.
18EU Minor companies operate in numerical order, followed by major companies as stated under 'rest' below.
18EZ Level 1 In seating order round the table.
18FL, 18US The highest value company that has not operated operates next. If more than one company occupies the same space, the  company with a token on top operates first.
18Ruhr Private companies, then active PMCs in ascending numerical order, then Public companies in descending order of share price. If two companies occupy the same space, the company with a token on top operates next.
18West The highest value company that has not operated operates next. If more than one company occupies the same space, the  company with a token on top operates first. The v2.3 retuned rules clarify that all Granger Roads operate before all other companies regardless of current market value.
Rolling Stock Current 'dynamic' share price. By 'dynamic', this means that each time a company finishes operating, you look at the current stock price chart to see who is next. The highest value company that has not operated operates next. Each share price can only be occupied by a single company, so no further ambiguity is possible.
Steam Over Holland In descending price order, with ties being resolved from left to right.
Rest Current 'dynamic' share price. By 'dynamic', this means that each time a company finishes operating, you look at the current stock price chart to see who is next. The highest value company that has not operated operates next. If two companies occupy the same space, the company with a token on top operates next. If two companies have the same value but are in different spaces, the company with a token furthest to the right operates next.
