Welcome to rail-books.co.uk, here you can order some of the latest railway books online for delivery to your home at competitive prices. The selection of books listed on this site represents the core stock of new and clearance titles. There is also an extensive range of pre-owned titles available. We can obtain most new titles that are in print but not listed on the website within around 10 working days. Therefore, if you are looking a book that is not here, please ring or use the contact page.
We are committed to a high level of service and if you are not satisfied with the service we provide, please contact us using the contact form.
Most orders to UK addresses are post free and are dispatched by Royal Mail's 48 Hour service. Heavier orders may be sent out by courier; we will advise you in advance if an order is being sent via courier instead of Royal Mail.
We aim to dispatch orders within two working days of receipt of cleared payment and will contact you if this is not possible to give you an indication as to the likely delay in case books need to be ordered in. As we attend 10-15 shows a year, some books may occasionally be temporarily out of stock. Certain books are not stock items and will have to be ordered in; these are marked accordingly on the website. This typically takes around 8-10 working days.
Customers may also pre-order books for collection at one of the various shows attended by Rail-Books. Please do not purchase via the website but instead get in touch with us directly or use the "Contact Us" form.

The e-commerce platform we use will accept payments via all major credit and debit cards such as Visa, Mastercard and American Express. You may additionally use PayPal.

If you find that you have purchased a book by mistake, please be aware that UK law allows you 7 working days to cancel and return the book. Once the book has been received in good condition, a refund will be made of the book price and original postage. On-line retailers are not liable for the costs of returning unwanted purchases.
Whilst we endeavour to ensure that books are as described and will do so to the best of our ability, where books are found to be faulty or not as described, a full refund will be made but please contact us BEFORE returning the book.
