I made a scenario with a lot of industry, and 4 citys at the corners of the map.
While playing around, I got the message 'can't make more stations in this town', or something like that.
I would love a feature to start a new city during gameplay.
This task depends upon

Rename stations that already exist to free the default names for new stations

So the message "to many stations in this area" is actually incorrect.

I think this needs some fixing. If you are playing with more than one player, your competitors can reserve all station names meaning that you cannot build any stations in that town. You cannot rename station names of some other player.

This sounds more like a bug about limited station-names; if you rename a station you can add an other one. Should be fixed more nicely :)

Maybe when you run out of default names, re-use them adding a number or letter on the end... to avoid that kind of abuse... (configurable)
