Line History Titles

Our catalogue of Railway publications is growing rapidly and so we have split the railway books into four subject headings: Line Histories; Locomotive & Carriage; Private Owner Wagons and General.

Details of new and forthcoming titles are announced in our News section at the appropriate time.

Several of our titles have garnered excellent reviews in the railway heritage and modelling press. The Banbury & Cheltenham Direct Railway was Book of the Month in the April 2005 issue of British Railway Modelling.

The Railway History titles are backed up by the popularity of our journal Railway Archive so why not take a look at what we have published within its pages.
