1000 piece jigsaw puzzle.
This is a wonderful jigsaw puzzle map illustrating the history of the Railways from the first Steam Engine to run on rails to the introduction of Diesel Electric Locomotives. Drawn by Laurence Richardson and last published in 1974 by Collins Bartholomew as a fold up map. Now re-digitized and re-published by Mapseeker in association with the Collins Bartholomew Archive, the jigsaw map covers all of England, Wales, Scotland and Ireland with various historical railway history events, progress, iconic steam locomotives, heritage railways illustrated pictorially in the form of eye catching vignettes. The map is surrounded by the crests of many of the Railway Companies that were founded over time until they were consumed under the Amalgamation of 1923.
