Summer Saturday at Snow Hill Trains Jigsaw Puzzle

Summer Saturday at Snow Hill whisks the puzzler back to the 1950s through its portrayal of the Birmingham’s famous train station, Snow Hill which at its height, was the most popular station in the city.

Snow Hill was first built by the former Great Western Railway in 1852, and took passengers to destinations including London Paddington, Wolverhampton Low Level and Birkenhead Woodside. Originally named ‘Birmingham Station’, Snow Hill was rebuilt in 1912 and contained lavish facilities, such as a large booking hall with an arched glass roof, extravagant waiting rooms with oak bars, and a main platform area that was covered by a large glass and steel overall roof.
However due to the electrification of the main line from London to New Street in the 1960s, Snow Hill soon had the majority of its services withdrawn, which led to the station’s eventual closure in 1972 and it was largely demolished in 1977. In the mid-1980s, Snow Hill station was revived and with a new rebuild was opened once again in 1987, regularly taking passengers to London Marylebone and Stratford-Upon-Avon.

Painted by Philip D Hawkins, the 1000 piece jigsaw portrays the hustle and bustle that would have occurred on a Saturday morning in the 1950s as holiday makers rush to catch the 09.50am train to Plymouth and Penzance. As passengers wait eagerly with their suitcases on Platform 7, “The Cornishman” headed by “Castle” class 4-6-0 No. 5070 “Sir Daniel Gooch” has been loaded with coal and is ready to make the seven hour journey to the seaside town.

This wonderful keepsake is made from 100% recycled board of the highest quality and is perfect for any train enthusiast or loved one who remembers the lavish Snow Hill station during the 1950s when it was Birmingham’s busiest and most popular station.
