LATEST UPDATE: 22/05/2018
GREAT NEWS ON THE WAY
FIRST OF ALL...
Even due to an unprecedented demand for books from our catalogue, we hope to have everyone's orders printed and shipped within the next 14 days...how's that for service? Must admit, the recent glut of orders has been a complete surprise but we rise to the challenge.
I hope to bring you some good news shortly, regarding the publication of the last remaining books, plus interesting news about a major project that is to be rolled out. Please keep your eye on this website for further details. Also, thanks to everyone who has sent me plaudits for the service we provide in turnaround time in book orders,. This is now so honed, we are looking at no more than 14 days before orders are shipped. Thank you also for your continued support. Please continue to avail yourself of the books from the catalogue. Thanks again.
WESTERNS VOL 3 APPEAL
Can you help? Work on this volume is now going on very quickly, and yes, the end is in sight. However, the authors involved have asked if anyone has pictures of D1029 Western Legionnaire or D1035 Western Yeoman in the con yard at Swindon, or the 'A' shop or even on the ground. The pics need to be usable in terms of publishing. They need to be scanned at 300dpi. If anyone has any they could send me, so I can pass on to the authors then please email them to me at address on this website. Sooner we get pics, the sooner we can finish it. A free book is your payment. Thank you.
Take advantage of a glorious special offer - 1973-77 Western series and save more than £40.

ORDER SUCCESS RATE!
It is not often we get to blow our own trumpet, but today is one of those days. For the third month in a row I am delighted to say our book orders from the catalogue have been completed within the advertised 28 days and on average, in fact, 80 per cent, have been achieved within 14 days. Superb service I think you will agree!
THE BOOK CATALOGUE
You can still order from the book catalogue as this will remain here for the foreseeable future. So if you are missing any books from your collection or you have just found them and wish to order, please do so by clicking the relevant buttons. The turn around on these is normally less than 28 days now. So please feel free to order.
First....the website catalogue will remain open. Second, the offer of refunds, except for the last remaining unpublished books, has ended. Third, all books are progressing, publication will take place in 2018. Once these are published they will go into the catalogue, which will then become the only page on this website. Fourth, all orders placed with Sam or his dad, are in the system so there is no need to continually check if I have them, I have. My own website is still a long way off from being as good as I want it as it is being built from the ground up. The link will be posted here when it is ready. But as my main interest is aircraft and EE machines, it is unlikely to attract that many followers.
WESTERNS VOL. 3
Just to clarify about Westerns Vol. 3 Plans are in hand to get this out as soon as. But I keep getting hassled by people asking why it has taken so long. Well, for the record, all the early pics had faded, yellow skies, not true colours, there were no negs, so every picture and there are a lot, has had to be photoshopped correctly to get some semblence of normality back into the pictures. This has taken an immense time and frankly, I wouldn't have bothered. This process is nearing the end, but it has been a mammoth task which Sam virtually did on his jack jones. A book could have been out two years ago, but you would have all panned it with skies resembling nothing like reality. Hope that explains the majority of the reason for the delay.
UPDATE: Work on this volume, Westerns Vol. 3, has now increased in pace following the new year. And we hope to have some good news very shortly. Thank you for your patience everyone.
1000 DAYS: Scanning on pictures for this title has concluded, proof reading is on going.
SPECIALS: I am in the final stages of scanning for this volume. Proof reading will follow.
SUN AND SEA: Once again, scanning is virtually complete, choice of pictures is going well. Proof reading will follow.
ON SHED: Various matter pertaining to choice of sheds to be ironed out, but work proceeding well. Further news shortly.
