Welcome to the Titfield Thunderbolt specialist railway and transport bookshop. From early beginnings in Bath's Green Park Station market in September 1992 the business has journeyed through the old Great Western Station at Limpley Stoke, the Somerset Coal Canal at Brassknocker Basin and a mail order only period before finally arriving at its present premises in Larkhall on the east side of Bath.
We stock the complete ranges of quality publishers such as Wild Swan, Lightmoor, Twelveheads, Oakwood and Irwell Press, together with a huge number of other specialist railway publishers books. Also Canal, Maritime and Local History books, Alan Godfrey's historic OS map reprints, current Ordnance Survey maps for our area and a number of ranges of greetings cards including Peter Barnfield's superb art cards.
