6.3 - Where can you lay a station marker?

1829 It is laid by moving a survey party in the normal way to a city, and then changing its role.
1830BC Waterworks may be built on any land other than that owned by player-owned privates; permission of the owner is required if land in player hands.
1831 The newly-laid station marker must be reachable from one of the laying company's existing station markers by an arbitrarily large train. (Exception for C&O's second home base.)
1837, and in the first edition of 1835, the newly-laid station marker must be connected by track to one belonging to that company; but this track may include one (arguably, more than one) sharp angle that would prevent a train from running over it: "Ein Fahrtrichtungswechsel ist hierbei erlaubt". For 1837 the designer's intention was to allow no more than one backtrack.
1841 As well as the default rule below, the route must be from one of the laying company's existing non-mountain station markers, and must not cross an active border (not even twice).
1853 The newly-laid station marker must be reachable from one of the laying company's existing station markers by an arbitrarily large train, and must be within the company's 'patch'.
1853 v2 The newly-laid station marker must be reachable from one of the laying company's existing station markers by an arbitrarily large train, and must be within the company's 'patch'. After the first '5' train is bought, companies owning at least one '5' or '6' train may place a station marker at any station that they can reach from a home base using one of their trains. A company placing a station marker outside its 'patch' must include that station in one of its routes in the same operating round.
18EZ Level 1 Not applicable (no additional station markers).
18Scan As well as the default rule below, station markers may be placed in off-board hexes with a free token space.
2038 The newly-laid base, refuel, or claim must be reachable from one of the company's bases by a spaceship that it owns.
Crisis On a newly laid yellow station tile if this may be laid somewhere.
Poseidon On all hexes with white circles the ship touched in the turn.
Rolling Stock Not applicable.
Rest The newly-laid station marker must be reachable from one of the laying company's existing station markers by an arbitrarily large train.
