A note of caution for this inventory - my copy is incomplete and was probably a prototype. None of the maps in my copy bear version numbers and are not identical to the images on BGG. My thanks to Ron for providing me with copies of maps J and K, which were not included (probably added later on). However, with a little bit of help from BoardGameGeek images, I believe this is reasonably accurate.

Many maps have hexes that can have NY/OO tiles laid. These have all been listed as 'OO' hexes.
Some maps have extended off-board routes with multiple towns on them. If there are six towns on the route, it is counted as six fixed hexes.

The total count of individual items will usually exceed the total number of hexes shown. This will be due to hexes that contain multiple items, such as towns and cities in off-board areas and fixed locations.
Clear Where tiles with plain track may be laid. May include hexes with pre-printed track.
1 Town Where tiles with a single town (no station token space) may be laid.
2 Towns Where tiles with two towns (no station token spaces) may be laid.
Cities Where tiles with station token spaces may be laid, or where stations printed on the board may be upgraded. Does not include 'OO' hexes.
'OO' Yellow hexes where green tiles designated as 'OO' tiles with two separate station token spaces may be laid.
Off-Board Static, where trains may run to off-board areas, typically with values that vary according to the phase of the game.
Usually includes fixed locations that have variable income.
No tile lays allowed.
An off-board area may consist of more than one hex - each area is usually counted only once for each train.
Fixed Static, usually with track or fixed value stations printed on the map.
No tile lays allowed.
Rivers and
Mountains
Hexes that contain these features with a cost to place or upgrade tiles. Other features appear occasionally (Desert, Forest, Swamp).

Map J has two islands and has a set of trains for each island. I do not know the quantities for these trains. However, given that are fourteen train types for each island, there is a good chance that there is only one of each train. 15 additional trains are needed to meet this requirement. The trains shown with yellow backgrounds are optional.
