Paul at a model train show in happy pre-pandemic times.

Introductory

By Charles:
Paul has been a "fixture" at model train shows in Ontario for many years. His specialty is (out of print) railway books and related print memorabilia of all kinds. This page is offered as a service to readers of my website who may be hunting for this, that or the other.

By Paul:
First, I would like to thank Charles for the opportunity to post part of my collection/ inventory to all train and transportation hobbyists/ collectors.
The condition of the books is reflected by the usual category descriptions:

Fine (F) –  Like new (LN) – good (G) – [my term] a bit shabby (BS) – hard cover (HC) – soft cover (SC) – paperback (PB) – dust jacket (DJ).

They are priced based on the abebooks.com inventory prices. 

IMPORTANT: All my prices include shipping.
Shipping is a significant part of the purchase, and this should be taken into account when comparing prices.

I try to be the cheapest "game in town" by charging in Canadian, not American dollars (so you are saving 30% over on-line prices, which are quoted in US$).

Please note though that I cannot match prices on eBay or on other auction sites. Enough said. Here’s my list:
