Leader and Southern Experimental Steam
Robertson, Kevin
ISBN: 0862997437
Alan Sutton Publishing Stroud, Glos, England 1990 First Edition
 Hard Cover 128 pages b/w photos - price clipped - The SR Leader class was a class of experimental 0-6-6-0 articulated steam locomotive, produced to the design of the innovative engineer Oliver Bulleid. The Leader was an attempt to extend the life of steam traction on Britain's railways by eliminating many of the operational drawbacks associated with existing steam locomotives. It was intended as a replacement for the ageing fleet of M7 class tank engines still in operation on the Southern Railway . Design work began in 1946, and development continued after the nationalisation of the railways in 1948, under the auspices of British Railways The Leader project was part of Bulleid's desire to modernise the steam locomotive based on experience gained with the Southern Railway's fleet of electric stock. Bulleid considered that attitudes towards the labour-intensity of steam operation had changed during the post-war period, favouring dieselisation and electrification. In an attempt to demonstrate the continued potential of steam Bulleid pushed forward the boundaries of steam-power, allowing it to compete with diesel and electric locomotives in terms of labour-saving and ease of operation.The design incorporated many novel features, such as the use of thermic siphons, bogies, and cabs at either end of the locomotive, resulting in its unique - for a steam locomotive - modern diesel-like appearance. Several of its innovations proved to be unsuccessful however, partly accounting for the project's cancellation in the early 1950s. Five Leader locomotives were begun, although only one was completed. The operational locomotive was trialled on the former Southern Railway network around Brighton. Problems with the design, indifferent reports on performance, and political pressure surrounding spiraling development costs, led to all locomotives of the class being scrapped by 1951  Good/Good

 Hard Cover 175 pages index b/w photos line drawings Wolverton railway works was established in Wolverton, Buckinghamshire, by the London and Birmingham Railway Company in 1838 at the midpoint of the 112 mile-long route from London to Birmingham. The line was developed by Robert Stephenson following the great success of the Liverpool and Manchester Railway line. The Victorian era new towns of Wolverton and New Bradwell were built to house the workers and service the works. The older towns of Stony Stratford and Newport Pagnell grew substantially too, being joined to it by a tramway and branch line (known as the "Newport Nobby"), respectively. The trams were also hauled by steam locomotives : the tram cars were certainly the largest ever in the UK and possibly the world.  Very Good/Very Good

Bolton’s Last Tram
Goulding, Peter
The Bolton 66 Tramcar Trust Bolton, England 1985 First Edition
 Soft Cover date approximate 50 pages b/w photos - At the start of the 1980s with the Tramway's centenary approaching Councillor Parkinson, the Chairman of the Transport Committee, suggested that trams should be used from other towns and cities across the country. Bolton 66 was the first of these trams and arrived in 1981 follwing completion of its restoration, and it remains in Blackpool today 22 years later. The tram is an unvestibuled 8 wheel double-decker which was built by the Electric Railway and Tramway Carriage Company in 1901. The tram was originally an open-topper but was enclosed in 1932 although it retained an open drivers platform. In 1940 66 was renumbered 366 and was seen on Bolton-Dunscar and to Farnworth and Westhoughton services. 366 was withdrawn from service in 1946 and the lower saloon was sold as a caravan. It was rescued by local enthusiasts in 1964 and after the restoration (including the building of a completely new top deck)and testing at Kearsley Power Station the tram arrived in Blackpool on 23 June 1981 where it has operated ever since. Since the tram has been in Blackpool it has been fitted with a low voltage lighting system and air brakes.  Good/No Jacket

ABC Signalling in the Age of Steam
Vanns, Michael A.
ISBN: 0711023506
Ian Allan Ltd Shepperton, Surrey, England 1995 First Edition
 Soft Cover 112 pages b/w photos - The subject of railway signalling is one that continues to fascinate railway enthusiasts, preservationists and modellers alike. Over the past 30 years, traditional signalling has, to a considerable extent, disappeared as more modern colour light signalling has replaced it. But on the preserved railways and on many of the more remote lines it is still possible to see traditional semaphore signals in operation from historic signalboxes. In 1991 Ian Allan published Stanley Hall's British Rail Signalling Handbook, which covered the current operation of signalling on the railways. The book, which was later reprinted, inevitably concentrates upon the modern technology of the railway scene. abc Signalling in the Age of Steam goes back further in time to examine the development of signalling and how it can still be found in many places. Detailed examination is given to the operational practices within signal-boxes, thereby providing the reader with a detailed handbook to the subject. Despite the modernisation of the railway industry and the demise of many traditional signalboxes, many of the surviving boxes nationwide still control semaphore signals of a type recognisable to the signalling staff for almost two centuries, and Network Rail, as the non-profit-making body that now controls the nation's railway network concedes, knowledge of the traditional means of signalling remains imperative. Fully illustrated with both photographs and line drawings, abc Signalling in the Age of Steam will become the essential guide to this fascinating topic. First published in 1994 and subsequently reprinted, this book remains the best basic guide to the subject of traditional signalling available. It is recommended reading for those seeking a career in railways and also for those involved in preservation or who want a comprehensive guide to traditional signalling methods.  Good/No Jacket

Also on the 20 acres site are many hundreds of thousands of other items and records of social, technical, artistic and historical interest, exhibited mostly in three large halls of a former motive power depot next to the East Coast Main Line, near York railway station. It is the largest museum of its type in Britain. The NRM was established on its present site, the former York North locomotive depot, in 1975, when it took over the former British Railways collection located in Clapham and the York Railway Museum located elsewhere in the city; since then, the collection has continued to grow.   Good/No Jacket

The Euston Arch and the Growth of the London Midland & Scottish Railway
Smithson, Alison & Peter
Thames & Hudson London, England 1968 First Edition
 Laminated Pictorial Boards approx 100 pages b/w illustrations - The Euston Arch, built in 1837, was the original entrance to Euston station, facing onto Drummond Street, London. Designed by architect Philip Hardwick, it was inspired by the Roman architecture Hardwick encountered on a trip to Italy in 1818 and 1819. Strictly speaking it was not an arch at all, but a propylaeum of the Doric order. The sandstone structure was designed for the London and Birmingham Railway (L&BR), mirroring Birmingham Curzon Street station, at the other end of the company's mainline. The arch was to be not only a fitting gateway to the midlands, but to the whole new world which the railway was to open up. A suggestion to move the arch was made in 1938 by the London Midland & Scottish Railway (LMS), which proposed the rebuilding of Euston Station according to an American-inspired design by Percy Thomas, a respected architect hired with the help of a loan provided by the government. After returning from a tour of modern stations in the United States, Thomas proposed a large stripped-Classical block with wings, which incorporated a hotel and offices as well as the station. This plan required the removal of the Euston Arch. Gerald Wellesley and Albert Richardson of the Georgian Group, a conservation organisation, managed to persuade Lord Stamp, chairman of the LMS, that it could be resited on the Euston Road, even though Thomas had insisted that it would not be possible to move it. Ultimately these plans for reconstruction were never realised as the Second World War commenced the following year.   Very Good/No Jacket

The Great Days of the Express Trains
Thomas, David St John & Whitehouse, Patrick
Guild Publishing London, England 1990 Reprint
 Hard Cover 208 pages colour and b/w photos - The book contains a number of short chapters covering many aspects of railway working from the 1930's and the 50's to early 60's. Some of the short narratives take you "on the journey" with the train, or the loco crew on the footplate. Chapters cover such diverse subjects as cross-country trains, day excursions, summer weekends, sleepers and night trains, shed work, an engineer on the footplate, etc. This is indeed a book for the nostalgic enthusiast, and complements the high standards set by the same authors in their four "150" series, and the "Great Days of the Country Railway" volume. The book has excellent photographic reproduction into the bargain.  Very Good/Good

Triumph & Beyond : The ECML 1939 -1959
Brooksbank, B. W. L.
ISBN: 189962421X
Challenger Publication Oldham, Lancashire, England 1997 First Edition
 Laminated Pictorial Boards 184 pages b/w photos - Challenger Publication have published various railway books over the years in what is a very specialist but competitive market, recently for example the series Yeadon's Register of LNER Locomotives, but Triumph and Beyond is the most challenging and interesting book we have had the good fortune to handle. Ben Brooksbank has truly demonstrated how the brain of a professional scientist, by the combination of incisive and original thinking and clarification of detail, can bring a wealth of new knowledge and insight into what for many is a mundane, to others an overvalued, subject. The aficionados of the LNER have seen many books published on this railway in recent years, which have merely recapitulated the history of the Gresley Pacific's and the streamlined trains, and have offered little, if any, new material or lines of research on other features. Now, at long last, this book, which is the exact opposite, covers the much wider field of the East Coast Main Line (ECML), the backbone of the LNER, in great detail. (Vol. 2 is to follow). It is truly a work of scholarship involving a great deal of research among wide ranging archives from which has been unearthed a vast amount of new information, particularly about the war years. For this, the author is to be congratulated. ... The book is well illustrated, mainly with freight trains -- which was where the money was made, and most are published for the first time. It is primarily about the railway as a public carrier. The engines and rolling stock are merely incidental and do not occupy, as so often, a leading role. It is a satisfying read, much of which will come as news to some readers but it will give them a true understanding of the LNER's magnificent contribution to winning World War 2.  Very Good/No Jacket

Modelling Diesels in 4mm Scale : RTR Conversions and Improvements
Shackleton, Tim
Hawkshill Publishing Cornwall, England 1996 First Edition
 Soft Cover 96 pages colour and b/w photos - Despite their excellent overall quality, there are many ways in which today's RTR diesels (Ready-to-Run) can be improved. This book is packed full of practical ideas and techniques to help you upgrade your models-from simple detailing to far-reaching conversions that will enhance the interest and variety of your loco stud. It also shows ways of refining the running quality of modern RTR diesel drives and demonstrates the painting and weathering techniques that result in truly realistic models. The author states that he chose specific projects for this book that would demonstrate, in successive hands-on stages, a way of going about things. The locomotives selected as guinea pigs don't necessarily represent the ones the reader or author would choose to convert or improve, but the way that the author has treated them is-or at least is intended to be-universal. So, what is written about reworking the Lima 37 can easily be applied to the 47, or the 26.   Very Good/No Jacket

Oxford - Birmingham : Portrait of a Famous Route
Pixton, Bob
ISBN: 1870754662
Runpast Publishing Cheltonham, Gloucestershire, UK 2006 First Edition
 Soft Cover 80 Pages b/w Photos - The story of this route throughout the steam era is covered in some detail. . This important GWR line linked Birmingham Snow Hill with places such as Solihull, Warwick, Leamington, Banbury and Oxford, and on to London. The train services, both freight and passenger, are covered all along the line during the steam era, with its changing motive power well illustrated. It was a full main line, and, even after many London - Birmingham services were diverted onto a new direct route at the southern end, its role in the cross-country railway network means it has always been very busy with long-distance workings, as well as local services. There are some pictures of the branches off the main line, such as to Stratford-upon- Avon, and also of trains that worked over parts of the route - for example those direct London services which used the original line between Birmingham and Aynho and services which went via the old Great Central route to and from Banbury. Informative captions enhance the pictures of all this activity, covering not just the trains and varied motive power in steam days, but also all the stations, plus signal boxes, freight yards etc, giving a good account of the line's fortunes over the years  As New/No Jacket

Locomotives of the LNER - 19 Volumes from Vol 1 to Vol 11
Railway Correspondence and Travel Society
RCTS (Railway Correspondence and Travel Society) Cheam, Surrey, England 1984 First Edition
 Soft Cover volumes 1, 2a, 2b, 3a, 3b, 3c, 4, 5, 6a, 6b, 6c, 7, 8a, 8b, 9a, 9b, 10a, 10b, and 11- The Railway Correspondence & Travel Society has been the compiler and publisher of several seminal series of works which cover in order of completeness the histories of locomotives of (1) the London & North Eastern Railway in some 19 separate parts (all of which have volume numbers and some of which are divided into parts); (2) the Great Western Railway (with similar bibliographical complexity); (3) the Southern Railway (2 volumes for the Southern Railway as such, plus further volumes for its constituents); (4) British Railways on an almost class by class basis; and (5) the London Midland & Scottish Railway which is work in progress on two fronts: (a) volumes on specific aspects of design between 1923 and 1947, such as boilers, non-steam motive power, etc and (b) the locomotives of specific pre-grouping railways, notably the Highland. Each locomotive type is described in considerable depth, and all significant modifications are recorded. Numbers, including changes, names, dates of completion and withdrawal are all tabulated. Details of where the locomotives were allocated and worked are recorded to varying degrees. Most possible variants are illustrated, although the quality of reproduction is sometimes barely adequate. It is, however, worth stressing that the bulk of this effort has been performed on a voluntary basis. Needless to say, much has been culled to form the backbone of works of far less stature. Most conform to a common style which has tended to be upgraded with time: the GWR series is dominated by centre-stapled booklets; the LNER by thin card covered volumes and the later series by (mainly thin) bound volumes.  Very Good/No Jacket

Rails Through Lakeland : An Illustrated History of the Workington - Cockermouth - Keswick - Penrith Railway, 1847 - 1972
Bowtell, Harold D.
ISBN: 0947971262
Silver Link Publishing Peterborough, England 1991 Reprint
 Hard Cover 200 pages B/W Photos - The Cockermouth, Keswick and Penrith Railway (CK&PR) was incorporated by Act of Parliament on 1 August 1861, for a line connecting the town of Cockermouth with the London and North Western Railway (LNWR) West Coast Main Line at Penrith. Arrangements for the use of the stations at either end (Cockermouth was already served by the Cockermouth and Workington Railway (C&WR) were included. Traffic was worked by the LNWR and (originally) by the Stockton and Darlington Railway (later the North Eastern Railway), both of whom had shares in the company. The line was 31 1/2 miles (51 km) in length, and had eight intermediate stations. The line opened on 2 January 1865: trains from Penrith began to work through to Whitehaven along the CK&PR/C&WR route from 1 July 1865, when the C&WR station was closed: that railway was absorbed by the LNWR in 1866. Although the LNWR provided the passenger services, the CK&PR continued to operate as a separate company until the 1923 Grouping, when it was absorbed by the London, Midland and Scottish Railway.  Very Good/Very Good

Oh, now for it. This superfluous practice was invented by a certain Mr Allan who was a numismological wizard - and a great benefactor.' Illustrated throughout with line drawings and cartoons, "4ft 81/2 and All That : A Sort of Railway History" is an antidote to all those highly detailed histories that identify, sleeper by sleeper, the intricacies of operation of some obscure industrial line in the Outer Hebrides.   Very Good/Very Good

The Marlborough Branch
Robertson, Kevin & Abbott, David
ISBN: 1871608120
Irwell Press Pinner, Middlesex, England 1990 First Edition
 Hard Cover 90 pages b/w photos - With the northern extension to Cheltenham complete, the M&SWJR turned its attention in the early 1890s to resolving its problem at Marlborough, where it was paying £1,000 a year to run over the GWR Marlborough branch tracks. It negotiated successfully with the Marquess of Ailesbury to run a new line from the M&SWJR station in Marlborough, through a 640-yard tunnel and across Savernake Forest. The new section then crossed the GWR's Berks and Hants Extension line and joined the southern section of the original SM&AR line just north of Grafton and Burbage station. The new double-track section was called the Marlborough and Grafton Railway and was given the parliamentary go-ahead in 1893. It opened for through traffic on 26 June 1898, at which point the link just outside Marlborough station to the GWR branch line was closed. The only intermediate station on the new section was at Savernake, about 200 yards from the GWR Savernake station but not connected to it. The Marlborough and Grafton Railway was formally taken over by the M&SWJR in 1899 and for the next quarter century Marlborough had regular services on both lines. The April 1910 timetable, for example, shows each line offering about eight services a day, though the GWR did not run any trains on Sundays - The beautiful county of Wiltshire played host to many railway schemes but none more intriguing than that of the Marlborough Branch. This ancient market town with its roots deep in British history, nestling between the Cotswold Hills and the plains to the south, boasted two stations and a direct route to London at Savernake. The Midland and South Western Junction line with its own station (latterly known as Marlborough Low Level to distinguish it from the Marlborough branch station) skirted the town to the east with the little Marlborough line winding its way southwards to its link with the great Western at Savernake. Here the branch train would trundle to Marlborough from a bay platform along the five or so miles to a compact terminus sited just south of the town. Early rationalisation in the Wiltshire area after Grouping consigned the line to no more than a siding, the bulk of traffic being centred at the Low Level station. The relatively early closure of the line has made research all the more difficult but the authors have nevertheless unearthed a wealth of previously unpublished material including many maps, timetables and photographs.  Very Good/Very Good

World Rail Atlas and Historical Summary Volume 7 : North, East and Central Africa
Robinson, Neil
ISBN: 9789549218435
World Rail Atlas Ltd. England 2009 First Edition
 Soft Cover 200 pages maps This is the first time that a rail atlas is published for most of these countries. In this volume, an attempt has been made to document the development of railways in all countries covered by the atlas. Therefore not only is a detailed list of railways and tramways given, but also the basic social and economic changes that have taken place in the country, as the latter undoubtedly has an impact upon the evolution of transport links. The level of details socio-economic changes has, however, been scaled down since the last volume, for reasons of relevance and space considerations. The historical chronology does not cover early periods in the country's history apart from a basic overview (this is a railway atlas after all). But it does give an outline of companies formed, concessions granted, successive mergers, nationalisations and later privatisations. The details of each country's rail and tram routes are then listed.  New/No Jacket

World Rail Atlas and Historical Summary Volume 8 : The Middle East and Caucasaus
Robinson, Neil
ISBN: 9789541201282
World Rail Atlas Ltd. England 2006 First Edition
 Soft Cover 168 pages maps - The World Rail Atlas and historical survey of the Middle East and Caucasus is the first such publication in an emerging series that will cover all parts of Europe, Africa, Asia, Australasia and the Americas.-This volume is the eighth in a series of 20, released as such due to the availability of material. It covers the following countries: Armenia, Azerbaijan, Bahrain, Cyprus, Georgia, Iran, Iraq, Israel, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Oman, Palestine, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Syria, Turkey, United Arab Emirates, and Yemen. This book attempts to be a complete historical register of the railway routes of the regions covered, but of course there will be omissions. Some of these countries' railway networks are diagrammatically represented in print for the first time ever, save for minimal and obscure diagrams produced through the years, and together with all distances shown to the nearest tenth of a kilometre, where known, gives as complete a picture as is possible at this stage. It must be stressed though that kilometre distances are sometimes haphazard even in official documents, and without actually travelling on all routes to verify the distances, errors are likely through either incorrect readings given by railway companies, or in past publications, or by re-alignments of lines and consequent removal of curves.  New/No Jacket

DDLR : The Story of the Dearne District Light Railway & Competitors
Denton, A. S.
ISBN: 0901307351
Omnibus Society London, England 1982 First Edition
 Soft Cover 22 pages b/w photos - The Dearne District Light Railway was a tramway linking Barnsley with the towns of Wombwell, Wath, Bolton on Dearne and Thurnscoe. Opened on the 12th of July, 1924, it was the last street tramway to be built in the UK and one of the first to shut. A "car barn" was built at Wombwell, which later became Yorkshire Traction's bus depot, and single deck vehicles were used throughout its nine year life span. Because of mining in the area the track was laid on wooden sleepers and covered over and was all single track with passing loops, which was the reason for its downfall. When motorbuses started to compete on the same route as the DDLR it was found that because the trams had to wait to pass each other, the bus could complete the journey much quicker and so the electric vehicles had to go. Very few traces of the former DDLR remain now, as the last tram journey reached the end of the line on the 30th September 1933, soon to be replaced by the local bus service.   Very Good/No Jacket

The Book of The A1 and A2 Pacifics
Coster, Peter
ISBN: 190326684X
Irwell Press Clophill, Bedfordshire, England 2007 First Edition
 Laminated Pictorial Boards 232 pages b/w photos - In this book dealing with the principal steam express locomotives of the LNER and its nationalised successor, we consider the Pacifics that followed those of Sir Nigel Gresley, finishing with the last, and perhaps by post-war railway operational standards, the most successful steam design, the A1 Pacific of Arthur Peppercorn. The A1 was introduced not merely in the eleventh hour of the old Big Four , but almost in the last five minutes of that hour. In the mêlée of nationalisation, the new Railway Executive's mechanical engineering team, determined to create a new railway with the new standard locomotives, turned its back on the most successful large passenger designs. These were Gresley's A4 and Sir William's magnificent Duchess Pacific, joined by Peppercorn's A1. The sequence of events that led to the A1 actually started with Gresley's Mikado of 1934, and it was the need to resolve the problems of these magnificent but flawed locomotives that led to the emergence firstly of the Pacifics of Edward Thompson, then secondly those of Arthur Peppercorn. With the relatively abrupt abandonment of steam in favour of diesel and electric traction, the working life of all post-war designs was truncated, and the engines working life became shorter with the later designs.  Very Good/No Jacket

Reflections of the Furness Railway
Davey, C. R.
ISBN: 0950992607
Lakeland Heritage Books Barrow-in-Furness , Cumbria, England 1984 First Edition
 Soft Cover 56 pages b/w photos - The Furness Railway was a railway company operating in the Furness area of Lancashire in North West England. The company was established on May 23, 1844 when the Furness Railway Act was passed by Parliament. The line, as originally laid, was intended principally for mineral traffic (slate and iron ore), and extended from Kirkby-in-Furness to Dalton-in-Furness, this was later extended to Rampside. A later line was built from Dalton to Barrow. That portion was opened on August 11, 1846. Passenger traffic began in December 1846. Subsequent extensions took the railway to Ulverston in April 1854; the Whitehaven and Furness Junction Railway was taken over in 1865 thus extending the Furness Railway to Whitehaven, Carnforth (where the Furness linked with the London and North Western Railway and thence to Lancaster (see below), Coniston and Lakeside). The line was linked to Lancaster on August 27, 1857 by the Ulverston and Lancaster Railway, which was bought out by the Furness Railway in 1862. The Furness Railway was connected to the Midland Railway by the Furness and Midland Joint Railway in 1867. Also in 1867 the Hincaster Branch from Arnside to the Lancaster and Carlisle Railway at Hincaster was opened   Very Good/No Jacket

 Soft Cover 168 pages b/w photos - Very few road passenger transport professionals, and especially those involved in the now almost vanished municipal sector, have ever taken the trouble to write down for publication a record of their activities which would include an outline of the engineering, operation and financial/administrative problems that came their daily way, and what a story so many of them could have told. Just what must it have been like to set up and then run a brand new circa 1900s electric tramway system or to cope later with the vagaries of those temperamental 1920s buses, or in the 1930s to start to abandon tramcars for motor or trolley buses or to engage in the initial and quite unprecedented traffic court battles? Consequently here is the author's attempt to provide present day passenger transport enthusiasts with just a flavour of what it was like to be so involved from the middle of the last century through the next few decades, when almost non-stop change was the name of the game. Before one reached the dizzy heights of finding the legend 'General Manager' affixed to your office door one had to obtain a suitable start in the industry and thereafter try to make progress as opportunity allowed. If anything, obtaining that first start could be far from easy. Here then is the story of how one interested but uninformed schoolboy tried to attain his early and overriding ambition to see his name on the side, preferably of a municipal tramcar, against those almost magic words 'General Manager'  Very Good/No Jacket

 Laminated Pictorial Boards 96 pages colour photos - It is now a decade since Virgin was awarded the franchises and thus an opportune time to examine the development of the services over these years. In this book, the author, who was privy to much of the company's strategic thinking as a result of his role with the Rail Passengers Committee for the Midlands, examines the state of the businesses inherited by Virgin, how the TOC's coped with the massive investment required and overcame the problems with the new fleets of rolling stock. The book provides the first in-depth analysis of the major franchisees to have been published. Many millions of passengers across the country use these services every year which will make this book of interest to a large audience. - usual neat library stamps Ex-Library Good/No Jacket

The Kingsbridge Branch ( The Primrose Line )
Williams, Ken and Reynolds, Dermot
Oxford Publishing Co. Headington, Oxford, UK 1977 First Edition
 Soft Cover 248 pages b/w photos name on title page - The Kingsbridge branch line was a single track branch line railway in Devon, England. The line, which became known as the Primrose Line, opened in 1893 and despite local opposition closed in 1963. It left the Exeter to Plymouth line at Brent and ran 12 miles (19 km), following the route of the River Avon to Kingsbridge. A proposed extension to Salcombe was not constructed. In 1849 the South Devon Railway reached Plymouth with its broad gauge railway, connecting South Devon to London over friendly associate railways. People in Kingsbridge and district felt cut off from the benefits of railway connection, and in 1854 an ambitious project was put forward at a public meeting: the line was to run from Churston to Kingsbridge. The meeting generated huge enthusiasm, but little money was forthcoming and the scheme went no further. Ten years went by and in January 1864 another meeting took place in Kingsbridge proposing a more modest scheme from Brent station on the South Devon Railway main line to Salcombe via Kingsbridge. The cost of construction was to be £130,000, and this time tangible support was available; the scheme went to Parliament and obtained its authorising Act for the Kingsbridge and Salcombe Railway on 29 July 1864, capital £130,000. This early success was not followed with much actual money, but two years later several deviations were required and even more capital needed; an Act of 23 July 1866 authorised additional capital of £60,000. A Mr Chambers was persuaded to be the contractor to the impecunious Company and work started a year later, on 24 June 1867. In fact very little was done and in 1871 it was proposed to abandon the scheme due to lack of money. Ten more years went by, and a new Kingsbridge and Salcombe Railway was authorised by Act of 24 July 1887; the new Company purchased the rights of the earlier line for £3,500, and it was to run to Ibberton Head at Salcombe. Capital was to be £160,000 for the 16 mile line, and working arrangements were provisionally agreed with the Great Western Railway (GWR), which by now had absorbed the South Devon Railway. Yet again enthusiastic planning was not matched by the putting forward of finance, and a year later only £1,500 had been subscribed. Clearly nothing could be done in the circumstances, until on 28 October 1885 discussions took place with the GWR with a view to their taking over the scheme. A figure of £8,000 was tabled, increased to £10,000 which seemed to be acceptable at first. Then ambiguities over land supposed to have been acquired by the old Company was legally owned. Further meetings dragged on until on 21 March 1888 at Paddington, the purchase (of the unbuilt line) was finally agreed. It was formally confirmed on 13 June 1888. With the resources of the GWR behind the scheme, construction now proceeded. The cost of the construction, which included 48 bridges, was £180,000. The line opened on 19 December 1893, 39 years after the first project was put forward. Wrangaton station had been renamed Kingsbridge Road, but reverted to its original name on the same day. Although Brent station lay at the foot of Dartmoor hills, the line leaving Brent fell steeply at 1 in 60 to Avonwick and continued falling, less steeply to Gara Bridge and almost to Loddiswell. Rising there at 1 in 50, it reached a summit at Sorley Tunnel, from where it fell again at 1 in 50 to Kingsbridge. After the second world war increasing use of road transport for goods and personal travel resulted in declining use of the branch line. Losses were stated to be £37,759 annually. The line closed to goods from 9 September 1963, and was to have closed completely on that date; however there was a delay in the substitute bus company obtaining the necessary licence, and the last train ran on 14 September 1963.  Good/No Jacket

Great Orme Tramway : The first 75 Years
Anderson R C
ISBN: 0900433663
Light Rail Transit Association Milton Keynes, Bucks, England 1975 First Edition
 Soft Cover date approximate 20 pages b/w photos - blue cover- The Great Orme Tramway (Welsh : Tramffordd y Gogarth) is a cable-hauled 3 ft 6 in (1,067 mm) gauge tramway in Llandudno in north Wales. This is Great Britain's only remaining cable operated street tramway and one of only three surviving in the world. Operation of the tramway differs from the famous and unique San Francisco system in that it is not a cable car but rather a street running funicular (similar to the Lisbon system), where the cars are permanently fixed to the cable and are stopped and started by stopping and starting the cable. This means that as one car is ascending the other is descending and they must meet half way. The tramway was built in 1902 to take passengers to the summit of the Great Orme and is in two sections. There are two cars on each section. The two sections operate independently and are mechanically different. The lower section is built on or alongside the public road and has gradients as steep as 1 in 3.8. The cable on this section runs out of sight below the road surface in a conduit which is placed centrally between the rails. The bottom half of the section is single track, but above the passing loop it has interlaced double track. In comparison, the upper section is less steep with a maximum gradient of 1 in 10 and is single track apart from a short double track passing loop equipped with Abt type points to accommodate the cable. The original power house, situated at the Halfway station between the lower and upper sections was equipped with winding gear powered by steam from coke-fired boilers. This was replaced in 1958 by electrically powered winding gear. In 2001, the entire Halfway station, its control room and its power plant were completely rebuilt and re-equipped. The tramway uses four tramcars, which were new when the tramway was built in 1902. An overhead wire telegraph was formerly used for communication between the tram and the engineer-driver in charge of winding the drum, but this has now been replaced with a modern induction loop radio-control system. The tramway has three main stations, the lower station, named after the hotel that formerly occupied the station site, the one in the centre aptly named 'Halfway' and the Great Orme Summit station. Passengers must change trams at the Halfway station.   Good/No Jacket

ISBN: 9781857943474
Silver Link Publishing Kettering, Northants, England 2010 First Edition
 Soft Cover 128 Pages b/w Photos - In this fourth and final volume in this popular series, Paul covers the remaining sectors of the Rail Freight business from 1968 to the present day. The types of traffic covered include: * Container traffic * Charterail * Channel Tunnel Intermodal * Chemicals * Nuclear traffic * Milk * Parcels, mail and newspapers Using predominantly his own illustrations Paul examines in detail the changing scene. 1968 saw the end of steam on British Rail and this in itself had a massive impact on the operation of Britain's railways. Gone were the labour intensive steam locomotive depots and many of the rural goods depots. In their place were new diesel and electric traction depots with a wide variety of locomotive types - cleaner to operate and more efficient to run. However many were experimental in nature and breakdowns were not un-common. Gradually even the larger Goods depots were being replaced with larger concentrated freight yards. New methods of handling the goods came in with the advent of containers designed to be used by rail, road and sea. Waggons were larger and carried higher and higher capacities, specialist loading and unloading facilities meant new traffic flows were needed as demand for movement by rail having gone through a massive decline began to recover and the industry is seeing considerable growth potential going forward.  Good/No Jacket

British Rail Standard Diesels of the 1960s
Clough, David N.
ISBN: 9780711033733
Ian Allan Publishing Hersham, Surrey, England 2009 First Edition
 Hard Cover 160 pages b/w photos - This book takes the subject forward and covers the standard diesel locomotive designs that were made during the early 1960s which include the Class 33s, the 37s, the 47s, the Hymeks, the Westerns and the Deltics as well as the less successful Claytons. A number of these early classes proved successful and were built in significant numbers between their introduction and the ceasing of production in the late 1960s. Many of the most productive classes were, in fact, not to arise from the Modernisation Plan but were developed from the early 1960s onwards and this book covers these in detail. The book explores the background to the development of each class and provides an extended overview of diesel locomotive development of this period. Illustrated with unseen photographs, this book will appeal to the growing numbers of diesel modellers and enthusiasts.  Very Good/Very Good

 Soft Cover 36 pages b/w photos - 5593 was built in 1934 by the North British Locomotive Company of Glasgow, Works number 24151, and part of Lot 118, to a design by William Stanier. In May 1936 she was named Kolhapur after Kolhapur, a princely state in western India. Initially built with a low degree superheat domeless boiler, she received a domed boiler in April 1937. 5593 hauled the train carrying Winston Churchill from Liverpool on his return from talks with President Roosevelt in 1942. After nationalisation in January 1948 she was renumbered 45593 by British Railways in December of that year. She was allocated to various sheds during the 1950s and 1960s, including Longsight, Carlisle Upperby, Willesden, Aston, Burton, Patricroft and Newton Heath. On 23 March 1965 she was transferred to Leeds Holbeck and was kept there in good condition to work railtours over the Settle-Carlisle Railway. She was also given a yellow cabside warning stripe to indicate that she was barred from the electrified West Coast Main Line south of Crewe where she was out-of-gauge. She was withdrawn in October 1967  Fair/No Jacket

Off the Rails : The Crisis on Britain’s Railways
Murray Andrew
ISBN: 1859844960
Verso London, England 2002 Reprint
 Soft Cover 196 pages - The train derailment at Hatfield in October 2000, which cost four lives, prompted a national rethink about the state of Britain's railways. The crash has been followed by months of near-paralysis on the system, and has put privatization under the spotlight as never before. Off the Rails looks at the disastrous consequences of private ownership for Britain's railway network and makes the case for the restoration of the system to public control. It traces the history of the privatization process from think-tanks to legislation, and how British Rail came to be sold off in a hurry in one hundred different pieces by the Major government, despite public hostility. It looks at the complex structure of the privately-owned rail industry and identifies the main players, showing how they have failed to work in the public interest. It explains the conflicting roles of the various regulators, and adds up money made for shareholders at the taxpayers' expense in an industry which combines public subsidy with private profit. Written by an author deeply involved in the industry, Off the Rails draws extensively on the testimony of those who work on the railways—the train drivers, maintenance workers, signalers, station staff and passengers' representatives. The Hatfield crash was the final straw for the public reputation of the fragmented railway. The run-up to the disaster and the chaos afterward are examined in detail, as are the limitations of the political response from New Labour. Off the Rails is also a call for change. The book looks at how public ownership could be reintroduced and considers other alternatives for renewing the railways. It also draws on experience in other parts of the world to make the case that only the restoration of the railways as a public service can guarantee the safe and reliable service which passengers expect.  Very Good/No Jacket

Crewe Railway Station
Miller, Frederick P; Vandome, Agnes F & NMcBrewster John
ISBN: 9786130811174
Alphascript Publishing Mauritius 2010 First Edition
 Soft Cover 74 pages b/w photos - Crewe railway station was completed in 1837 and is one of the most historic railway stations in the world. Built in fields near to Crewe Hall, it originally served the village of Crewe with a population (c. 1831) of just 70 residents.[1] Crewe was chosen after Winsford, seven miles to the north, had rejected an earlier proposal, as had local landowners in neighbouring Nantwich, four miles away. Nowadays, as well as serving the town of Crewe that has grown near it, it still operates as a major junction on the West Coast Main Line (WCML). It also serves as a major station on the WCML and as a major rail gateway for the North West. On the WCML, Crewe is located 158 miles north of London Euston, and 243 miles south of Glasgow Central. In April 2006, Network Rail organised its maintenance and train control operations into 26 "Routes". The main line through Crewe forms part of Route 18 (The West Coast Main Line). The line from Shrewsbury and South Wales to the junction south of Crewe station is Route 14 (South and Central Wales and Borders). The North Wales Coast Line to Chester and North Wales is Route 22 (North Wales and Borders) and the Crewe to Manchester Line forms a part of Route 20 (North West Urban). The Crewe to Derby Line is electrified between Crewe, Kidsgrove and Stoke-on-Trent to enable it to serve as a diversionary route and therefore forms a part of Route 18. Crewe currently has 12 platforms in regular use. There is a modern passenger entrance containing a bookshop and ticket office. Passengers access the platforms via a footbridge, stairs and lifts. The platforms have buildings dating from the 19th century containing two more bookshops, bars, buffets and waiting rooms. The last major expenditure on the station was in 1985, when the entire track layout was remodelled and the station facilities updated during a three-month period when few trains called at the station.  Good/No Jacket

Aurum Press London, England 2007 First Edition
 Hard Cover 246 pages colour and b/w photos - When the Golden Age of Steam is mentioned, one train leaps to mind above all others—the Flying Scotsman, Nigel Gresley's elegant masterpiece of a locomotive, which broke the world speed record in 1934 and has enthralled millions with its beauty and power. Uniquely, its postwar career has been even more varied and exciting than the early triumphs. The twists and turns of the tale are detailed here—nearly abandoned on a tour of the United States after the money ran out, owned briefly and unsuccessfully by pop mogul Pete Waterman, and put up for sale yet again when the company that owned her went bankrupt in 2003. A massive public campaign saved her, and she is due to steam again in late 2007, after being restored at the National Railway Museum in York. Now, with the aid of numerous interviews with those involved with the Scotsman over the years, the story of the train and all who have owned and worked on it is brought alive.  Very Good/Very Good

The Greatest Railway Blunder
Vaughan Adrian
Ian Allan Publishing Hersham, Surrey, England 2009 First Edition
 Hard Cover 160 pages b/w photos - Well known railway writer Adrian Vaughan, and author of the very successful title "Railway Blunders", now turns his attention to what he considers to be the greatest blunder the railway industry has ever perpetrated, the privatisation of the 1990s. A personal polemic, he first gives a history from the dawn of the railway age up to 1948 when the industry developed into a number of large, centralised, integrated self-supporting companies, but the efficiencies borne from a common gauge and common standards enabled the railways to withstand even the very worst pressures that two World Wars brought to the transport system. The author then goes on to analyse the process of privatisation and the effects it has had on the industry in the ensuing years.He looks in detail at the franchisees, the contracts, the costs, the successes and more prevalent failures, the comparison with railways abroad, and to the final chapter where he poses the question 'Has privatisation achieved anything that could not have been achieved by BR?' All readers can judge for themselves in this often controversial but always absorbing study.   Very Good/Very Good

British Railways Pre - Grouping Atlas and Gazetteer
Conolly, W. Phillip
ISBN: 0711003203
Ian Allan Ltd Shepperton, Surrey, England 1976 Fifth Edition
 Spiral Bound Wire 84 pages - First published in 1967 as a fifth edition of the original 1958 production, this is a welcome reprint of this useful reference source, last reprinted in 1998. The whole railway system as it existed in the years prior to 1923 are shown with routes in colour coded format on 45 pages of maps. Locations of tunnels, locomotive sheds, works and other features are included. What the volume contains is 45 pages of maps showing the railway network of Great Britain (i.e. excluding Northern Ireland) as it was in 1923, plus an index of the stations named with grid-references. The significance of the year 1923 is that in that year the plethora of small railway companies was grouped into four large concerns. The compilation and drafting must have called for considerable patience, and it has all been carried out with no small skill. The profusion of railway lines in many parts of the country, particularly in and around the major cities, must have made clarity difficult to achieve. Adroit use of contrasting colours and types of lines to distinguish the pre-grouping companies' routes makes the maps surprisingly easy to read, and where the nodal points are particularly dense and complex the most congested areas are exploded into larger-scale presentations. A few routes that had already gone by 1923 are included for completeness, but some are omitted. The number left out is so small that I wish the draughtsmen had gone the whole hog and just given us the lot. There was, for instance, a light railway serving Findhorn in north-eastern Scotland, and I wonder how many among even the most obsessive enthusiasts for this topic have ever even heard of it. In Britain itself a fascination with the railway network of yore is a national phenomenon, as the enormous literature of nostalgic writing and photography from a large range of publishers, generalist as well as specialist, eloquently testifies - name stamp on title page  Good/No Jacket

Cooper, Basil K.
ISBN: 0711018944
Ian Allan Ltd Runnymede, Surrey, England 1990 First Edition
 Laminated Pictorial Boards 96 pages colour and b/w photos - The British Rail Class 33 also known as the BRCW Type 3 or Crompton is a class of Bo-Bo diesel-electric locomotives ordered in 1957 and built for the Southern Region of British Railways between 1960 and 1962. A total of 98 Class 33s were built by the Birmingham Railway Carriage and Wagon Company (BRCW) and were known as "Cromptons" after the Crompton Parkinson electrical equipment installed in them. Like their lower-powered BRCW sisters (BR Classes 26 and 27), their bodywork and cab ends were of all steel construction. The original (1957) number sequence was D6500 - D6597. They began service on the South-Eastern Division of the Southern Region but rapidly spread across the whole Region and many were used much further afield - an example being the weekly Cliffe (Kent) to Uddingston (South Lanarkshire) cement train which was worked as far as York (and occasionally throughout) by pairs of the locomotives. They were built with the ability to supply only the then new electric train heating rather than the ubiquitous steam heating which passenger carriages largely used. Early delivery problems and a shortage of steam locomotives resulted in many Class 24 locomotives being borrowed from the Midland Region and pairs, of 33 + 24, became common on Winter passenger services. This resulted in unpopular, complex run-round manoeuvres at termini as Class 24 needed to be coupled inside to provide steam heat. Emergency provisioning of through-piping for steam heat on some examples of class 33 alleviated this somewhat. The Southern Region was unaccustomed to the operational overhead and maintenance associated with the use of class 24 and they rapidly became unpopular. With the advent of modern stock and warmer seasons, they were sent back home with the Midland as pleased to have them back as the Southern was to see them gone.  Very Good/No Jacket

ISBN: 1899889019

 Soft Cover 128 pages b/w photos - Fascinating pictorial history of the North Staffordshire Railway, known as "The Knotty." Black and white nicely-captioned photos fill every page and show the locomotives in action over the decades, as well as the stations, personnel, and industries served. 128 pages. The NSR's main routes were constructed between 1846 and 1852 and ran from Macclesfield to Norton Bridge, just north of Stafford, and from Crewe to Egginton Junction, west of Derby. Within these main connections with other railway companies, most notably the London and North Western Railway (LNWR), the company operated a network of smaller lines although the total route mileage of the company never exceeded 221 miles (355.7 km). The majority of the passenger traffic was local although a number of LNWR services from Manchester to London were operated via Stoke. Freight traffic was mostly coal and other minerals but the line also carried the vast majority of china and other pottery goods manufactured in England. As the NSR was surrounded by other larger railway companies, there were in the 19th century several attempts emanating from other companies or proposals from NSR shareholders to amalgamate with one or more of the other companies that adjoined it. None of these came to fruition and the NSR remained an independent company up to 1923 when it became part of the London,   Very Good/No Jacket

Eastern Counties Railways
Joby, R. S.
ISBN: 1873676409
Marwood Publishing United Kingdom 1996 First Edition
 Soft Cover 302 pages b/w illustrations - stapled book - he Eastern Counties Railway (ECR) was an English railway company incorporated in 1836 intended to link London with Ipswich via Colchester, and then to Norwich and Yarmouth. Construction began in late March 1837 on the first nine miles at the London end. Construction was beset by engineering and other problems, leading to severe financial difficulties. As a result the project was truncated in April 1839 to Colchester. The railway opened on 20 June 1839 from a temporary terminus at Devonshire Street in Mile End to Romford; on 1 July 1840 it was extended to a new London terminus at Shoreditch (renamed Bishopsgate in 1846) and to Brentwood; on 7 March 1843 to Colchester, a distance of 51 miles, now part of the Great Eastern Main Line. he railway was originally 5 ft (1,524 mm) gauge on the recommendation of engineer John Braithwaite - at this time there was no legislation dictating the choice of gauge, and the directors favoured the Great Western Railways's broad gauge of 7 ft 1/4 in (2,140 mm). On grounds of cost Braithwaite recommended the 5 ft gauge to reduce wear on locomotive parts, and the Northern & Eastern Railway, planning to use the ECR between Stratford and Bishopsgate, was forced to adopt the same gauge. With the extension of the railway in the early 1840s it became apparent that 4 ft 8 1?2 in (1,435 mm) standard gauge was a better choice, and in September and October 1844 gauge conversion was carried out, with the N&ER.   Good/No Jacket

 Soft Cover covers detached but present - 139 pages b/w photos - South Lancashire Tramways was a system of electric tramways in south Lancashire authorised by the South Lancashire Tramways Act of 1900. The South Lancashire Tramways Company was authorised by the act to build over 62 miles (100 km) of track to serve the towns between St Helens (now in Merseyside), Swinton, Westhoughton and Hulton Lane where the Bolton Corporation system ended. The system was the largest standard-gauge electric tramway outside London. The company had difficulty raising capital and at the end of November 1900 its shares were acquired by the South Lancashire Electric Traction and Power Company. It also acquired the shares of the Lancashire Light Railways Company and the South Lancashire Electric Supply Company. Construction began in late 1901 and in October 1902 the first section from Lowton through Leigh and Atherton to Four Lane Ends at Over Hulton opened. Atherton became the centre of the system and the tram sheds, power station and offices were built on the north side of Leigh Road at Howe Bridge.   Poor/No Jacket

Rail Centres : Newcastle
Hoole, K.
ISBN: 1901945189
Book Law Publications Nottingham, England 2008 Reprint
 Hard Cover 128 pages b/w photos - Newcastle railway station (or Newcastle Central Station) is the principal mainline railway station in the city of Newcastle upon Tyne in Tyne and Wear, North East England. Opened in 1850, it is a Grade I listed building and is located in the City Centre at the southern edge of Grainger Town and to the west of the Castle Keep. It is both a terminus and through station serving the East Coast Main Line between London and Edinburgh, the Durham Coast Line to Middlesbrough, and the Tyne Valley Line to Carlisle. It is currently managed by East Coast but will be brought under Network Rail control when the East Coast franchise is returned to the private sector in 2015. The station is a major interchange and is served by InterCity trains operating to destinations across England and Scotland, as well as regional services across the North East and Cumbria. All East Coast services between London and Edinburgh stop at Newcastle, with extensions to Glasgow, Inverness and Aberdeen. Important southbound destinations include Darlington, York, Doncaster and Peterborough. CrossCountry supplements services to Scotland, and operates trains southbound to the South West and south coast via Birmingham and the wider Midlands; trains reach as far as Penzance and Southampton. The station is also a terminus for First TransPennine Express, which connects Newcastle to Liverpool, via Leeds and Manchester, including some services to Manchester Airport. Northern Rail variously combines three routes out of Newcastle in order to provide both terminating and through services. To the west, trains connect the city to the MetroCentre, Hexham and Carlisle, with intermittent extensions to Whitehaven, and to the north, Cramlington and Morpeth on the East Coast Main Line, with extensions to Chathill. To the south east, the Durham Coast Line serves Sunderland, County Durham, and Teesside. Important stops include Hartlepool, Stockton and Middlesbrough, the line being shared with Tyne and Wear Metro services to Sunderland. In peak hours some services arrive from Teesside via the East Coast Main Line. Additionally, Northern and First ScotRail jointly operate a limited service to Glasgow via Carlisle. There is furthermore pressure for the line to Ashington to reopen and be included in the next Northern franchise with regular services from Newcastle. The station is connected to Central Station on the Tyne and Wear Metro, which lies directly beneath the mainline concourse and is an interchange between the green and yellow lines, providing frequent services through central Newcastle to the Airport and Whitley Bay, and through Gateshead to South Shields and Sunderland. Together with many local bus routes, the complex is one of the most important transport hubs in the North East. There are currently two Metro and twelve mainline platforms accounting for 13 million passengers annually, and in lieu of increasing numbers the mainline station is currently undergoing an £8.6 million refurbishment to increase retail space and enhance the station environment including the pedestrianisation of the portico.   Very Good/Very Good

The Welshpool & Llanfair Light Railway : An Illustrated Guide
Anon.
The Welshpool & Llanfair Light Railway Preservation Company United Kingdom 1970 Revised
 Soft Cover 20 pages b/w photos - containing a history of the railway, a description of the route into Welshpool and notes on locomotives, rolling stock and other information. The W&LLR was one of the few narrow gauge branch lines to be built under the provisions of the 1896 Light Railways Act. Noted narrow gauge promoter Everard Calthrop appeared at the Light Railway Inquiry, and proposed the use of transporter wagons. However the line ended up being built by the Cambrian Railways engineer, with consequent conservative 4-wheel wagon and other provisions. It was opened on 4 April 1903 to aid economic development in a remote area, never making a profit. It was originally operated by the Cambrian Railways, connecting with it at the former Oswestry and Newtown Railway station in the town of Welshpool. The line is built through difficult country, having a great number of curves in order to reach the summit of 600 ft. The original terminus at Welshpool was located alongside the main line station and trains wound their way through the town, using the locomotive bell as a warning. In the 1923 Grouping of railway companies, Cambrian Railways, including the Welshpool to Llanfair Caereinion line, was absorbed by the Great Western Railway (GWR). On 9 February 1931 the line lost its passenger service, which was replaced by a bus service, and it became a freight-only line. It was temporarily re-opened to passengers between 6 and 11 August 1945 for the Eisteddfod. The GWR itself was nationalised in 1948 and became part of British Railways. Freight traffic lingered on until 1956, by which time British Railways decided to close the line, with services ceasing on 5 November. A group of volunteers and enthusiasts took the line over and started raising money to restore it. On 6 April 1963 the western half of the line, from Llanfair Caereinion to Castle Caereinion, was reopened as a tourist railway.   Fair/No Jacket

The Welshpool & Llanfair Light Railway : An Illustrated Guide
Anon.
The Welshpool & Llanfair Light Railway Preservation Company United Kingdom 1968 Revised
 Soft Cover 20 pages b/w photos - containing a history of the railway, a description of the route into Welshpool and notes on locomotives, rolling stock and other information. The W&LLR was one of the few narrow gauge branch lines to be built under the provisions of the 1896 Light Railways Act. Noted narrow gauge promoter Everard Calthrop appeared at the Light Railway Inquiry, and proposed the use of transporter wagons. However the line ended up being built by the Cambrian Railways engineer, with consequent conservative 4-wheel wagon and other provisions.

A public holiday was proclaimed to celebrate the occasion. Originally the railway was powered by a simple system using water and gravity. Water was pumped into a 2000 imperial gallon (9000 litre) tank beneath the top car until its weight. Between 1943 and 1944 the system was rebuilt to use electricity   Fair/No Jacket

Chasing the Flying Snail : Irish Railway Photographers

ISBN: 1904242510
Colourpoint Books Newtownards, Northern Ireland 2005 First Edition
 Soft Cover 64 pages b/w photos - In the 1950s, the railways operated by Coras Iompair Eireann (CIE) were more like a working museum rather than a state-owned railway. The vintage coaches and life-expired locomotives were part of the charm of the Irish system and attracted numerous railway enthusiasts. Tony Burges visited many parts of the network during trips in 1953 and 1957, and captured CIE operations at locations such as Rosslare, Wexford, Waterford, Cork, Tralee, Dromod, Portarlington and Dublin. He not only photographed the rolling stock but also the stations, many of which have long since disappeared or been converted to other uses. This book, the first in the new series, contains 54 high-quality black and white photographs, all reproduced at 8 inches (200mm) wide.  Very Good/No Jacket

Kestrel Railway Books Southampton, UK 2008 First Edition
 Soft Cover 142 page b/w photos - Having previously dealt with the routes of the LNWR and the Cheshire Lines (both now out of print) Bob Pixton completes his Liverpool & Manchester trilogy with a pictorial survey of the remaining railway that joined the two great cities of the North West - the Lancashire & Yorkshire Railway. Despite being confined almost entirely within the two counties after which it was named, the railway operated one of the most intense services of any company at the time, connecting the mill towns of the red and white rose counties, and running large numbers of excursions to Lancashire’s coastal resorts.Like its companion volumes, this book takes us on an imaginary journey between Liverpool and Manchester, station by station, along the original main line via Bolton and the later direct line via Atherton. Cut-offs and goods branches are also covered. The three volumes in the series combine to provide a unique and comprehensive study of the railways between these two conurbations, with a total of over 700 photographs from the days of steam.   Very Good/No Jacket

Midland Railway Locomotives Volume Two - the Kirtley Classes
Summerson, Stephen
ISBN: 1903266858
Irwell Press Clophill, Bedfordshire, England 2007 First Edition
 Laminated Pictorial Boards 154 pages b/w photos - The thirty years of the Kirtley era, 1844-73, are a long time ago now. It was a period of rapid change and one of considerable complexity for the historian. Many of the earlier engines did not have long lives, but those built in the last ten years, with a few exceptions, were very long-lived. Their sturdy construction and ready adaptability to accept later and larger boilers resulted in examples of both passenger and goods engines still in use after the Second World War. In this way the more senior members of our enthusiast fraternity have a ready recollection of these ancient engines and form a link with those early days long gone. Indeed, nobody was Anybody in the late 1940s if they had not been to Bournville to see the last of the double frame 0-6-0s gathered there. No.22834 was the ultimate icon. With Johnson pattern boiler, the cab displaying a brass class 1 power class numeral and that amazing horseshoe tank layout of its tender, it was, even in those days, held in some awe as a relic of the distant past. The fact that the Ian Allan ABC said it was class 2 (which was true) and that its tender plate bore the date 1867 (the book said introduced 1868 ) only increased the fascination. Such little items formed the stimulus for research to sort it out , ultimately to result in this volume.  Very Good/No Jacket

The Book of The Stanier 2-6-0s
Sixsmith, Ian
ISBN: 1903266807
Irwell Press Clophill, Bedfordshire, England 2007 First Edition
 Laminated Pictorial Boards 100 pages b/w photos - When William Stanier, C.B. Collett's Principal Assistant at Swindon on the GWR, walked out of the Traveller's Club after a good lunch with Sir Harold Hartley of the LMS, one day in the autumn of 1931, he was looking forward to taking over as CME on the LMS first thing in the new year. At that moment he could hardly have thought that the first design on which he could bring his notions to bear would be a modest and destined-to-be anonymous 2-6-0. Freight power on the LMS was not nearly as good as Stanier had a right to expect. The Midland 4F 0 6 0 had been widely perpetuated; a good machine, it could have been much better if the axle box bearing surfaces had been man enough for the job. The same failing prematurely terminated the careers of the Fowler 7F 0-8-0s, all the more regrettable for the boiler being an excellent steamer. Similar woes afflicted the Garratts, leaving only the curious Hughes Crab 2-6-0s to shine, relatively, on freight working. In the Stanier revolution that was coming, the hordes of 8F 2-8-0s and Class 5 4-6-0s would alter this picture beyond recognition, but it was destined to start in a small way. One of them, The Mighty Mogul , is prominent in preservation today.  Very Good/No Jacket

Airfix : Celebrating 50 Years of the Greatest Modelling Kits Ever Made
Ward, Arthur
ISBN: 0004723279
HarperCollins London, England 1999 First Edition
 Hard Cover 192 pages colour photos - Airfix models will be 50 years old in 1999. Only a very sad minority of men aged 30-50 did not make Airfix kits when they were boys. This book enables the rest of us to relive the glory days of our plastic air forces (or tank fleets) and perhaps to pass the torch to our children. Superbly executed studio photographs show all the obscure and highly collectible kits as well as the best sellers, with illustrations of the packets, box art, adverts in 1960s and 1970s magazines, and a mass of period ephemera. The accompanying text charts the rise, fall and rise again of Airfix models. It’s a jolly read, a nostalgic reminder of kits long vanished, but with a happy ending: Airfix are now re-releasing 40 kits a year, bringing back some not seen for twenty years.  Very Good/Very Good

The Book of The LM Garratts
Sixsmith, Ian
ISBN: 1903266831
Irwell Press Clophill, Bedfordshire, England 2007 First Edition
 Laminated Pictorial Boards 108 pages b/w photos - Two into One Does Go - It was George Hughes, CME of the new LMS, that got development work under way, or at least it was he who first began to think about, a Garratt design for the LMS. This was at the end of 1923, according to E.S. Cox; a mogul and a Pacific had been proposed, together with a Garratt for heavy freight work. The notion of the articulated Garratt, it should be recalled, was the stuff of newness at this time, the design being barely more than a decade old. It is always said of course that the reasoning behind the Garratts was to supersede double headed coal trains on the Midland main line between Toton and Brent and this was indeed the case, though it seems clear that wider horizons were envisaged, or at least contemplated at one stage. The mighty Garratts would replace a pair of 3Fs/4Fs and on every one of the countless coal trains that so characterised the Midland main line and a crew (or rather their wages) would be saved. While it is true that Garratts were indeed able to accomplish this (in spades; their power was restricted only by the loading gauge and the firing rate) and while the Toton-Brent workings may well have been at the forefront of his thinking, the fact that the first stirrings in the evolution of an LMS Garratt should take place at Horwich, and as part of a standard range, rather suggests that Hughes had a wider sphere of operation in mind, at least initially. Not that this matters; within a year or so the strange dynamics of dynasty change and its unexpected consequences meant the Garratt solution was indeed applied to a strictly Midland problem. There were practical reasons too, why it was the Midland main line and no other; it has to be borne in mind (shades of the Mikados on the GN main line) that the operation of long freights was not determined solely by the capacity of the locomotive. Short block sections and refuge sidings hamper and inhibit such workings but the Midland between Toton and Brent was more suited than most, where extensive use was made of the permissive block. Two of the four lines were designat
