A must have wooden jigsaw puzzle for any young railway enthusiast! Your little one will be captivated as they piece together this classic wooden jigsaw puzzle and watch the scene unfold. The Flying Scotsman was designed by Sir Nigel and built in 1923 in Doncaster for the London and North Eastern Railway. It was originally numbered 1472. In 1924, it was re-numbered 4472 and officially given the Flying Scotsman name, after the London/Edinburgh rail service. In 1934 the Flying Scotsman was clocked reaching speeds of 100mph - the first ever locomotive to have reached such speeds. The Flying Scotsman was retired in 1963 after 40 successful years of service. This beautifully designed puzzle is a great way to develop the imagination, as well as improving thinking skills as your little one decides where each piece will fit.
