Well I'm glad you asked, dear players: the board (obvs) and the following cards...

2 - 'Miss Ludgrove the Vet...'
3 - 'Taking a flat truck of potatoes...'
8 - 'Taking the family of birds...'
18 - 'Taking some new boots...'
19 - 'Going to see the bubble-making machine...'
27 - 'Fetching a new Loom for Miss Olga Plovsky...'
33 - 'Taking Mr Pugh home...'
34 - 'Picking up more coal...'
38 - 'Picking up (more) Sheep for the Sheepdog trials...' (one of my faves)
40 - 'Collecting Professor Longfellow's Telescope Lens cap...'
46 - 'Picking up Tony and his family from Gwynaudolion Halt...' (!)
48 - 'They need a Hand-Pump & a Fireman...'
49 - 'For the joy of being alive and steaming...'
52 - 'The Cuckoo Clock'

PLUS _all_ the lettering is by Peter's own hand especially for this game.

The rest of the images are from the official image library and a couple of scans from the original books.

Oh, and you see that picture on the back of the rulebook? THAT is an ultra-rare picture that's never been printed since being in a children's comic in the 1960s...and how many of THEM are left? You should really think about framing THAT too
