In a bid to ensure that we can fulfil all orders in time for Santa's arrival on December 25, it is important that you order any books from the catalogue up to and including December 5. We cannot guarantee any orders will be printed and shipped in time for Christmas if they are later than that. The printers expect to be very busy between now and the festive season and then they shut down for a period over the New Year. So, please help us to help you. At least that way, everyone will enjoy their special festive day with a lovely book or two about the diesel-hydraulics. 


THE 1973-77 WESTERN SERIES is now available for £89.99 by clicking the button below. Do not order this item from the catalogue page as it will cost £125. This is a special sale for stock clearance. For details of the books themselves Winds of Change '73, Teenage Lament '74, Indian Summer '75, Spirit of '76 and Final Salute '77, these can be found on the catalogue page. Click link above. 


Well it is coming up to Christmas seriously, I am having a purge on stock, to make way for....hurray new stock. This means some items are surplus to requirements to quote nan often used BR phrase. So please check our our new offers above in the run up to the end of the year. Thanks. 


This title is coming along in its final stages now and I must say as I go through the pages, it will make a fine, if long awaited end to the trilogy of Western books. The authors need to fine tune it but my part is coming to an end. So full marks to everyone for their patience and hopefully, you will be as pleased as you can be with the results. 


These continue apace, with selection of pictures now proving the last major stepping stone along with some facts and figures in the Summer Saturday trains.  but suffice to say, I am hoping they will all be out in time for new year or shortly after. 


I remain excited about what is coming, the website being worked on behind the scenes for this free resource and new venture is both user friendly and spectacular in terms of its contents. The newly founded Western Loco Research Society has done everyone proud. Can't wait for the unveiling. That will come after a press launch in the new year when all will be revealed to the nation's railway and mainstream media. There will also be updates, blogs and news on all social media platforms. Keep your eyes peeled. 


Mr C has had a difficult few years but he's still found time to leave me with the diesel books and produce what many are saying is his masterpiece. His new book has already generated great interest among the nation's 4, yes 4, million anglers and thousands of supernatural buffs. Stemming from his own experiences on the country's most famous carp water in the history of angling, he and his old friend Len have combined to produce an eagerly awaited volume. I know it is not really for you rail fans, but a link to the publisher's website will be placed here shortly in case any of you like to dabble in a bit of maggot drowning with a ghostly tale or two.
