For some reason, jigsaw puzzles and nostalgic pictures have always gone hand in hand. Perhaps it's the patience required for putting together a puzzle that reflects an era when things moved more slowly. Or perhaps it's the simple joy of spending time looking at a painting of times past. Whatever the reason, if you're a fan of both puzzles and bygone eras, there are countless puzzles out there to fit your fancy.

Wooden Steam Train Jigsaws

Trains happen to be a very popular subject for jigsaw puzzles, particularly the handcrafted wooden variety. If you know someone who is a train buff, a wooden train jigsaw puzzle can make a spectacular gift. Jigsaws are available that show all sorts of different trains and train lines, spanning the steam age as well as the era of modern locomotives.

A great way to celebrate a liking for both puzzles and trains would be to collect puzzles displaying each of the major historic train lines of Britain. Once complete, you can mount them and display them on a wall with your other train memorabilia. Any train buff will recognize the subject of each puzzle, and will appreciate the time and patience required in putting it together.

A neat thing about choosing wooden train puzzles is that you're likely to be surprised by the pieces themselves. Specialty jigsaw puzzle makers usually include special "whimsy" pieces in their puzzles that reflect the overall theme of the puzzle. With their train puzzles, you're sure to find pieces in the shape of locomotives or even steam whistles.
