Does anyone have a M&S Chuggington puzzle which is surplus to requirements?

I know that there's a seperate "buy / sell toys" board, but there are only 3 threads on that, and very few replies so this gets more traffic, plus I don't know whether this is available to buy so.....

I bought DS two Chuggington puzzles in our local charity shop today, both are M&S puzzles with 40 pieces, both have bits missing Sad. DS loves the puzzles so I'm looking to get replacement puzzles to top up the bits which are missing. I've managed to buy this one on eBay but I can't find the other puzzle anywhere. It's the same M&S design box as the one above, but has <a class="break-all" href="http://www.google.co.uk/imgres?start=292&um=1&hl=en&qscrl=1&rlz=1T4ADFA_enGB482GB482&biw=1344&bih=670&tbm=isch&tbnid=YJgqwXjLRvd1ZM:&imgrefurl=en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chuggington&docid=Aah_zpimpG5DrM&imgurl=upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/thumb/2/2a/Chuggington_charactersjpg.jpg/300px-Chuggington_charactersjpg.jpg&w=300&h=169&ei=8XpwUPjXIuH80QXH4YCgCg&zoom=1&iact=rc&dur=156&sig=114436785121611419168&page=13&tbnh=105&tbnw=187&ndsp=24&ved=1t:429,r:4,s:292,i:18&tx=104&ty=29" rel="nofollow noindex" target="_blank">this image on it. It's not in stock anywhere - on eBay, Amazon, M&S, the M&S outlet site. Just as a long shot, does anyone have one of these that your DC has grown out of, if anyone's having a clearout before Christmas? I'm happy to tell you the 3 pieces that are missing (bottom row right corner etc) to save the cost of posting the whole thing if anyone has got one. I'll of course reimburse any costs incurred.

DS just sat on the floor by the puzzle saying "they weren't very kind" and pointing to the missing chunks of puzzle. Why do people give puzzles with missing bits to charity shops - do they think children won't notice? We got a third puzzle from the same shop, almost brand new and complete, but that's stashed away for Christmas; he's so disappointed about his two new puzzles. Gits.......

Builder, if you have got the puzzle, I've posted a photo on my profile, showing the 3 missing pieces - bottom right hand corner, piece above it and two pieces to the left of that - the right hand half of Brewster.

HTH.

Where are you based by the way? I also have a chuggington story book I am getting rid of but would be pricey to post.

You are in luck! Same puzzle totally intact. What shall I do? I can send all the pieces in case any go missing in the future? Or just the 3? Wont bother sending the box perhaps?

Builder have done. Thanks so much for your help with. I'm in awe - with a newborn I wasn't in a fit state to do much other than feed and change nappies, never mind sort out the delivery of jigsaw puzzles.
