I just bought Colt Express and the Stagecoach expansion and have managed to work it so that it all fits in the base game box. Used up the extra slot with the stagecoach and then separated the cards into the various slots along with the cars.

I don't have Marshal & Prisoners yet, but I'm not seeing how this is ever going to fit into the main box.

Any thoughts, or has anybody built an insert or something that incorporates both expansions into the main box?

I know we don't know the contents of the next expansion, but it would be nice to plan for that as well (i.e. I hope there is not another new car in it).

I am fairly confident that if I removed the box insert I could make the Marshall expansion fit as well, but it is going to be quite the puzzle. But after that. shake

Take out the central dividers, then all the carriages fit in. I have. It's expansions and the Time Travel car and it all fits in nicely. I have each players cards and Meeple in individual bags, and all the other cards bagged by type. It all fits in nicely : )

If it adds about the same amount of content as the previous two it'll be fine. I can take out the rest of the insert (the bit round the edges) which gives a surprising amount of space.

Everything between now and the next game is just killing time. Matchstickman. True, so very true.

Another way to gain badly needed space is to put the meeples and other bits in the train cars. You may be able to put that DeLorean in a couple train cars, width-wise.

I removed the insert completely, and made some separations with foam core.
Plenty of room now.
