It probably is Give my Regards to Broad Street.  At least it is the only
game whose screenshot features the London Underground logo.  I tried it,
but I can't tell for sure, because it has been 20 years.  Do you happen
to have any walkthrough or hints for this game?

Given that you all were so surprisingly quick, I dare to ask another
question: what is the name of a upwards-scrolling racing game where the
car was viewed from top?  The car was monochrome (dark brown), and the
front tyres would turn about 45 degrees.  The frame of the car would
always be vertically oriented.  The road probably consisted of sections
that were vertical or tilted 45 degrees.  GameBase didn't list this game
in "Racing - Overhead"

To get a little more on-topic, has anyone interfaced their C64 or VIC-20
to a model railway?  That's probably a long-term project, because my sons
are currently very enthusiastic about the Brio wooden railway and trains
from Thomas the Tank Engine series.  I might even pick AVR microcontrollers,
at least for the locomotives.  (I am well aware of ready-made solutions, but
I prefer a DIY solution.)
