Second-Hand Books

Due to the current situation we are somewhat restricted as to what we can supply. However the good news is that we will soon be offering a wide range of second-hand railway books to purchase from our website when Covid-19 allows us to do so. Whilst  we cannot dispatch anything at the moment we will make these available as soon as restrictions are lifted.


Needless to say, donations of railway books of any age, condition, or quantity would be much appreciated and we will arrange to collect these where possible.  Unfortunately we cannot accept magazines timetables and pamphlets for re-sale.

In addition to the new books listed on our Shop Page, The Friends of the National Railway Museum have a range of over 2000 railway books, timetables and pre-1970 magazines which have been donated by members and others for sale for the benefit of the Charity's funds.


They are very competitively priced and proceeds from sales are used to support the work of the NRM.
