New additions


We have received a substantial collection of books by a local resident in Grange which includes many Oakwood Press branch-line histories, scarce books on canals and tramways.

In February we collected over 500 books from supporters in Edinburgh – some really top quality books including some rare material on trams and London railways.

Wigan conductor ‘Amos’ delivers a new consignment of donated books to Kents Bank Station. Thank you!

We have also been given some brand new books published by the Cumbrian Railways Association and the Industrial Railway Society.

In January we were given some sizeable collections. The donations have included some rare handbills, bound volumes of the Great Eastern Railway’s magazine and many Oakwood Press titles. Most recently we have been given a large number of Oakwood Press titles from a friend in Altrincham, as well as some really good material from Friends of the National Railway Museum. These include some bound volumes of the Great Western Railway staff magazine, stretching back to 1907.

Many thanks to all.
