Welcome to Rail-Books.co.uk (formerly Geoff Gamble Books), here you can order some of the newest railway books online for delivery to your home at competitive prices - most are POST FREE too to UK addresses. Second-hand books are also available.
Rail-Books.co.uk was transferred into new ownership in July 2016 and we hope to continue serving you with mail-order railway books. Please take a look around the site
FINDING YOUR WAY AROUND THE SITE
To look at our selection of books available for ordering online, please use the menu on the left to navigate to the "Books For Sale" pages which are arranged by publisher in alphabetical order. It helps therefore to know the publisher of the book. Smaller publishers can be found on the Smaller Publishers A-L and M-Z pages, but you might find it easier to look down the menu to the left first to see if that publisher has its own page.
If you do not know the publisher, there is also a search engine which purports to be able to search within the site but we are not convinced on its effectiveness! Just enter the title or key words and hit "search"; this then gives you the page numbers where it appears. You may need to scroll down the page to find what you are looking for.
If you are looking for second hand books, a selection can be found towards the end of the menu to the left. Books on Irish Railways are to be found on the "Second Hand Books For Sale" page whilst books on all other overseas prototypes including the US, Canada, France, Italy, Austria and Germany as available can be found on the "Second Hand Continental Books" page.
If you cannot find what you are looking for, or do not wish to use the Paypal on-line ordering please contact us via the form, or ring on 020 8648 7328 (from abroad 0044 208 648 7328). The best time to contact Rail-Books.co.uk is between 18:00 and 21:00 on weekday evenings or between 10:00 and 21:00 at weekends when we are not at shows. There is an answerphone but please note that it cuts in very quickly - if we don't pick up after a short while please leave a message and we will get back to you.
Whilst only the latest publications are available online together with a selection of second-hand books, we hope in time to be able to add more of the older publications for specific publishers.
