LNER Passenger Trains and Formations, Banks and Carter 2013

Post by Quicksilver95 » Fri Mar 22, 2019 10:02 am

I would really like to get hold of a copy of this book - but currently it's only retailing at silly prices on Amazon and AbeBooks. I can only assume their algorithms are set such that when a book has fairly few copies on sale they can put the price up and up. Long shot I know, but does anyone on here have a spare/surplus copy I could purchase for a sensible price?

Thanks in advance

Joshua

Bill Hudson Transport Books has one listed at £60 probably + postage - NO LONGER AVAILABLE

I also found a copy on an Italian website apparently at €43,99 again it would be + postage - https://www.ibs.it/lner-passenger-train ... 0860936497 - though I'm doubtful that they have any stock.

Playing trains, but trying to get serious

Thanks for the replies folks, I'll take a look into a few of the above options. Still perhaps a little more than I'd like to have paid but certainly more realistic!

Given that the list price was £45 I'd not hesitate to buy before someone else reading this forum snaffles the deal :shock: You snooze you lose...
