Ravensburger has signed a deal with Science Museum Group Enterprises to produce a range of National Railway Museum puzzles.
The first three 1,000-piece jigsaws for 2012 and 2013 are based on railway posters from the museum: Yorkshire, East Coast and Wales.
Retailers already on board include Amazon, John Lewis (selected designs), The Official UK Puzzle Club and various Toymaster stockists.
The posters are from the National Railway Museum collection, commissioned by railway companies in the post-war years. These posters were designed to tempt passengers to explore British towns and coastal resorts.
"We are delighted to have Ravensburger on board and look forward to extending the brand with an amazing range of National Railway Museum Poster jigsaws," said Anya Hollis, SCMG Head of Commercial Development B2B.
Ravensburger Product Manager Sarah Stevens commented: "We were delighted to discover the amazing imagery hidden away in the National Railway collection. It’s ideal for the adult puzzle market, and we expect the range to be very well received by our retailers and consumers alike."
The National Railway Museum is the largest railway museum in the world, with exhibitions and collections illustrating over 300 years of British railway history.
