Abc Rail Guide: 2010 by Colin J. Marsden
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


This informative new book is designed to guide railway enthusiasts through the pitfalls of spotting, and to provide tips on how to make the most of this popular hobby. Renowned enthusiast and railway author Colin Marsden provides advice on everything from basic number sequences to the legal position of enthusiasts, defining how, where and when enthusiast activity is officially permitted. This will also cover the increasingly thorny subject of copyright and photography rights. Other topics examined include a full locoshed and works guide with addresses, contact details and types of work undertaken for each of the depots currently in use. This is supplemented by information on how to obtain shed permits for visits, and clearly highlights those sheds that under no circumstances allow visits. All the TOCs and other operators are included and described, and the guide also lists comprehensive information about services and stock operated, together with contact details and website information. The author also provides details of a selection of good photographic locations around the UK, as although most enthusiasts have their own 'pet' locations, there are a number of well-known and generally accessible sites which can be enjoyed by all. This winning combination of topics is covered in depth, with a quality of information that is unsurpassed. Beautifully illustrated throughout with over 500 colour illustrations, this is the definitive handbook that no railway enthusiast will want to be without.
