The Box (heavy and save place to all game elements):

All game components:

The board: really thick and great looking:

Tiles are very thick:

All tiles:

Cards: one of the best ever made in 18xx games, really thick ones:

And the trains:

Companies tokens:

Money, really nice, but better use poker chips:

Companies charters, very thin, you need to protect them:


Tiles are the same size as pattern on the board (some 18xx players prefer 5% smaller ones):


The revenue chart on board could have got better funcionality:

I prefer to use this one (you can download it here (https://www.boardgamegeek.com/filepage/147294/revenue-share-table):

To protect companies charters you can use binding covers, fast and simple way, not only for 1846 ­čśë
