What if the player is the sole shareholder of a company?

his wife along, she to go shopping while he played 18xx. Midway through a
game of 1856 the news came through that she'd had some sort of turn in the
street and had been carted off to hospital. Ever the gentleman, he rushed
off to offer succour.
Without consulting the TD, the rest of the players ran his position by
consensus until the game ended. He finished with the best result for any
game of 1856 during the whole weekend, and won a small prize for it.
I suppose if a player absents himself for less acceptable reasons, you could
always apply postal NMR! rules--his companies do nothing save pay dividends
if possible, and buy trains only when forced. In stock rounds they buy

price order (but not non-counting shares) if over limit. Either way, stock
in other players' companies gets sold first.
