Railway Books & Publications

During my research for this website, and for purely recreational purposes, I have unearthed a wealth of railway publications covering the region that I would recommend obtaining. Many of the titles are long out of print but with the likes of eBay these days, tracking down a copy shouldn't be too much of a problem!
