Books about railroads of England and the United Kingdom


These books are from the estate of the original owner, and appear to have never been read. They were in storage since his death in 1994 until we purchased them in 2004. Most titles I have found available only in England, so I am pleased to be able to provide them to our US customers without the expense of shipping from overseas.  Of course, I fully expect that a good number of these books will head back home across the Atlantic, and they have. Please do tell your train buff friends, or Railroad historical societies and museums to browse this page and to order books for their collections. Here are 198 titles remaining on August 20, 2012 from the over 1,200 we had. Thank you, yours, RAY
