The AEC Routemaster is a double-decker bus designed by London Transport and built by the Associated Equipment Company (AEC) and Park Royal Vehicles. The first prototype was completed in September 1954 and the last one was delivered in 1968. The first Routemasters entered service with London Transport in February 1956 and the last were withdrawn from regular service in December 2005, although two heritage routes are still operated by Routemasters in central London. Most Routemasters were built for London Transport, although small numbers were built for British European Airways and the Northern General Transport Company. A total of 2,876 Routemasters were built with 1,280 still in existence. This fascinating jigsaw puzzle combines illustrations from the Haynes Manual with detailed close-ups and facts about the spacecraft making it perfect for Routemaster Bus enthusiasts and puzzlers of all ages.
The London Undergroundis a public metro system serving a large part of Greater London and parts of the surrounding counties. The system serves 270 stations and has 402 kilometres (250 mi) of track, 55 per cent of which is above ground. The network has expanded to 11 lines, and in 2012/13 carried over 1 billion passengers. The system’s first tunnels were built just below the surface using the cut and cover method. Later, circular tunnels –which give rise to its nickname the Tube –were dug through the London Clay at a deeper level. The early lines were marketed as the UNDERGROUND in the early 20th century on maps and signs at central London stations. Today in official publicity and in general, the term ‘Tube’ embraces the whole Underground system, not just the lines that run in deep-level tunnels. This fascinating jigsaw puzzle combines illustrations from the Haynes Manual with detailed close-ups and facts about the London Underground making it perfect for transport enthusiasts and puzzlers of all ages.

The development of tanks in World War I was a response to the stalemate that trench warfare had created on the western front. While the British took the lead in tank development, the French were not far behind, fielding their first tanks in April, 1917 and going on to produce more tanks than all the other combatants combined. The Germans, on the other hand, were slower to develop tanks, concentrating on anti-tank weapons to use against British and French tanks. The first really successful use of tanks came in the Battle of Cambrai in 1917. British Colonel J.F.C. Fuller, chief of staff of the Tank Corps, was responsible for the tanks’ role in the battle. Tanks became more effective as the lesson of the early tanks was absorbed. This fascinating jigsaw puzzle combines illustrations from the Haynes Manual with detailed close-ups and facts about the Great War tanks making it perfect for tank & war enthusiasts and puzzlers of all ages.
