This game originally came in a wooden box with five section inside (similair to a Pope Joan board) and later (or in parallel) the box board was replaced with a paper board.
This is a set of cards only. The 18 main cards are hand stenciled colored but only the main character - not the background. There are also 18 pay and bugle cards that are uncolored. These resemble the earlier edition that I have seen, but coloring was often done afterwards and so this is just a feeling

Condition -The Bugle Horn - cards are in good condition, no damage but odd grubby spots and slightly concave. Photocopy rules can be provided as can a photocopy of the playing sheet / No box

Postage / As postage often changes it will be provided at time of purchase. Postage will be at cost rounded up to the nearest £1.00 to cover packaging.

This game consists of a box into which the board fits. It is small - about 14 by 27 cms (5.5 by 10.5 inches). The board fits snugly into the box, it is small and has no folds.

This is board only and a cheap version of the game ,
It follows the three routes from London to Edinburgh.

In 1860 Walter Leith – General Passenger Superintendent of the Great Northern Railway – suggested that the three companies that operated on the East Coast Route (the GNR, the North Eastern and the North British) share the cost of new coaches for the route from London to Edinburgh.
The result was the East Coast Joint Stock and in June 1862 a new service began using these coaches.
It departed from London Kings Cross going north and from Edinburgh going south, simultaneously at 10am, passing each other roughly half-way.
This game is a standard race game which has three different trains racing along the these three routes.

Condition - The Flying Scotchman - Board only, rules on the back, very good condition
Postage / As postage often changes it will be provided at time of purchase. Postage will be at cost rounded up to the nearest £0.50 to cover packaging

1893 - Ten Little Nigger Boys Puzzle.
The bottom section of the box contains two concentric circles, the outer of which contains ten round counters, each marked with the name of one of the boys:
Sambo, Hank, Pete, Huck, Gabe, Pomp, Lige, Snow, Caesar, and Mose.
The inner circle has two slots which connect the circles, and the printed names of the boys within.

The rules on the inside the lid state
“Put the BOYS into the box promiscuously, and without lifting them off the bottom move them with the finger to their appointed positions in the outer circle; two boys will not pass in the inner circle.”stet

The Tinplate Decorating Company was Ltd from 1885 to 1912. The Puzzle Museum, the only place we can find a copy, dates it as 1893.

The well known rhyme about these characters was written in 1869 by Frank Green.
