I have no tiles on the board, the rules state that in this case you can use an industry card to build that industry anywhere. It doesn't matter what period you are in.
See Martin Wallace's post that this is legal at http://www.boardgamegeek.com/article/1871797#1871797

What error message do you get? Which card from your hand are you trying to use? What tile are you trying to build? What space are you trying to build on?

sorry for the missing info:
coal mine card
trying to build a level 2 coal mind in manchester 2
error message is
You cannot use an industry card to build in that location, as you have neither connected to the location nor built a tile there.

The site's behaviour in that game is correct. You have already built industry tiles in that game. As it happens, you do not currently have any industry tiles on the board, because they were all removed during Canal Phase scoring. But, you have built tiles.

Actually the behaviour is incorrect :( In addition to the post from the game's designer at http://www.boardgamegeek.com/article/1871797#1871797 check out the designers other post at:
"Just to try to make things absolutely clear, if you do not have any counters on the board then you can use a single industry card to build in a location that matches the industry on the card. You are not limited by the actual turn or round of play."
Hope that makes it clear, I can certainly see the confusion which is why it took Martin several times to make it clear.

ps: looks like this message board is now buggy, I'm seeing html markup in the reply I just posted (instead of actualy line breaks)

Thank you for letting me know about that, I was not aware of it. I will alter the program to implement the correct rule.
I will fix the formatting errors in your post as well, they were caused by me fiddling around with a page on the site and missing something out.

It is changed now. You should now be able to build.

Yes, thanks! And thanks for the quick fixes! (I know what it's like)
And yea, I'm in the camp that feels the rule book could have used some more reviewers :) The rules are actually relatively simple, but it's those boundry conditions that makes them confusing in some places.
