Transport & Industrial History Books – as one of the UK’s leading dealers we pay top prices for top quality books and ephemera anywhere in the UK - no collection is too big!

Are you disposing of your collection or that of a deceased relative or friend or just downsizing? We offer an efficient and swift means of sale and disposal to a reputable dealer such as ourselves will often achieve a much better price and quicker sale than going through an Auction etc. (where the Auctioneers will usually take a 25 to 35% cut these days!). Unlike many dealers we will buy complete collections - we do not 'cherry pick' the better books and leave you with the rest (conversely we are not interested in collections which have already been picked over by others!). We are always interested in all quality titles on all aspects of British & Irish Railways, also Overseas Railways (including foreign language titles) and related books - generally books by the following Publishers are particularly wanted:

Capital Transport

Golden West
Irwell Press
La Vie du Rail
Lightmoor Press

Middleton Press
Morning Sun
Oakwood Press
Plateway Press
Rail Romances
