Pickering Station
500 Piece Jigsaw Puzzle

$16.00
Description

Harking back to the wonderful age of steam, Pickering Station is the 1930’s themed backdrop for this summer afternoon stop off for 45407; a Black 5 locomotive known as the Lancashire Fusilier. Drawing admiring glances from the crowd, smoke billows as the crew work tirelessly to keep the gleaming engine in tip top condition.

No. 45407 was built in 1937 and formed part of the largest order ever placed with a private builder by a British railway company, worth £2.7 million. Officially known as LMS Stanier Class 5 4-6-0 45407 this loco was withdrawn on 4 August 1968. Part of the North Yorkshire Moors Railway, a highlight of Pickering Station is the magnificent roof structure which was recently re-instated to the same design as the original, built in 1847 by G T Andrews.

As with all Gibsons jigsaws, we use 100% recycled puzzle board, FSC paper and work with the best artists from all around the world. The beautifully illustrated pieces are designed to fit perfectly together; in fact, we use the thickest puzzle board on the market. Everyone loves a Gibsons jigsaw, even Her Majesty the Queen has been spotted with one.

We’ve made some positive changes to our processes, so you can be sure you’re getting the same great puzzles and know that they are kinder to the environment. Not only does the box have a fresh new look, but we’ve used biodegradable clear labels to secure the lid instead of shrink wrap to reduce our plastic waste. There is a gloss coating on the box for extra protection and the puzzle pieces are stored in a plastic bag that can be recycled by most councils.

Because the box is slightly smaller than our previous designs, we need less room to transport our products which reduces our carbon footprint and means you can store your puzzles more easily. We have also popped an artwork poster inside for you to reference whilst you piece together your lovely jigsaw puzzle.

About the Artist

David Noble Leaving school in 1960, Dave worked at a local colliery for 12 years as an electrician, all the time painting and sketching his experiences in the dangerous working environment of the coal mine. In 1972, he won a scholarship to Ruskin College, Oxford and after completing his studies at Oxford and Hull Universities in 1978, he took up teaching at Rotherham College.

His love of steam engines and railways in general were directly inspired by his childhood experiences at Mexborough loco shed, where his father worked as a driver right up until the shed's closure in 1965. Now retired, he devotes more time to painting and drawing, whilst keeping busy fulfilling many commissions.
