In multiplayer games it is essential to keep track of who owns exclusive transport rights in which town. Now i have to open and pin many town windows and always have an eye on them if something changes. This would be alot easier when i could setup a message that is displayed when something changes. There could be also an overview who owns exclusive rights in which town. When playing with human players it is a major task because they can easily take damage to your coorporation by purchasing exclsuive rights without your attention.
This task depends upon

A useful extension would be to display ALL "Local Authorities" on the screen. Change the color of the overlay for the color of the company that has transport rights.

Other options within the GUI:
- Icons in Station List to show a "DO NOT ENTER" sign next to the station, indicating it is blocked.
- Text in the Station Detail window to show "XXX Transport has Exclusive Transport Rights".
