The Titfield Thunderbolt Bookshop

Bookshop What's New Wild Swan Peter Barnfield Millstream Booksearch

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. Recently added are the very good "Branchline Video" DVDs covering mainly Southern Region branch lines and a whole range of feature films with railway content

In addition there is a constantly changing range of quality secondhand railway books, including back issues of some of the journals.

Model railways are also stocked, the complete Peco 4mm track and accessory range is held, including 009 and their lovely new Lynton and Barnstaple rolling stock, together with selected Bachmann products - S&D and "local" BR locomotives and goods stock especially. Wills, Ratio, Parkside Dundas, and a good selection of the excellent "Woodlands Scenics" range.

1 mile from the Guildhall on the east side of Bath, bus services 6 and 7 from Bath Station and centre will take you straight to the shop. Free on street parking also available in and around Larkhall.

Millstream

I am the official distributor for Millstream Books. All titles are stored here and are fully described on a new section of the website, which also goes into the origins of the company. Millstream was the brainchild of Alan Summers and Tim Graham in 1986 when they were running the late lamented Whiteman's Bookshop at Orange Grove in Bath.

Follow the witterings of a Larkhall bookseller on my "blog" - Talking Shop. Updated Saturday 8th March.

Site last updated Wednesday 16th April latest MRJ added, new Ian Allan and Theodore Press books added to the website, some new reviews, unavailable titles removed, search re-loaded.

New books include "Southern Wagons In Colour" by Mike King and published by Noodle at £17.50. A really good collection of colour images as per the title with the majority of subjects in BR service, I think this is the best yet colour book on wagons of any type to have been published - a brilliant reference for modellers who like to weather their stock. See what's new for a link to full details of this and other new books.

If you cannot find something that you are after, or experience any problems, then please do not hesitate to get in touch. Although this is the World Wide Web and you may be reading this on the other side of the world, the organisation here consists of human beings with an interest and enthusiasm for the books we stock and we are always delighted to hear from our customers via phone, email or in person.
