Victory Jigsaw Puzzle LNER Flying Scotsman (vintage)


A vintage wooden jigsaw puzzle from days of old (1940s-50s?), featuring Flying Scotsman. The box says ‘About 175 pieces’ and we counted them and there are 180 pieces. The puzzle originally sold at 2 shillings and sixpence. The pieces are made of sturdy wood and are in mint condition.

Pre-loved. The box has some fading due to its age and a small tear on one edge. The box measures approx. 24 x 19 x 5 cm

The Flying Scotsman set two world records for steam traction, becoming the first steam locomotive to be officially authenticated at reaching 100 miles per hour (160.9 km/h) on 30 November 1934, and then setting a record for the longest non-stop run by a steam locomotive when it ran 422 miles (679 km) on 8 August 1989 while in Australia.
Retired from regular service in 1963 after covering 2.08 million miles, Flying Scotsman was preserved and held by a number of private owners and finally the National Railway Museum (NRM). It now carries out regular tours around the country after a massive £4.5 million restoration.
