Trains are our business. We love trains of all types, but you’ll notice that we tend to favor steam locomotives and narrow gauge trains in our inventory. Browse through our selection and find the perfect books about trains for collectors of all levels. If you don’t see what you need, ask us.  We love to search for rare railroad books – and we love passing these railroad gems along to you.

We frequently add new railroad books and railroad magazines to our selection. Check back often for the latest issues of the Narrow Gauge & Short Line Gazette,  Railroad Model Craftsman, and other high quality railroad publications. When you’re looking for railroad information to supplement your interest as a model railroad hobbyist or railroad enthusiast, look first at Montage Worldwide.

Further Reductions On Remaining Stock Of Garden Railways

We gave the magazine a fair trial, but sales haven’t justified the space, time and investment required.  So, we’ve decided to discontinue stocking the magazine. We have reduced prices to help get them out the door.  Garden Railways may not be the "right track" for you, but take a look at the Table of Contents of a few issues.  You might find some articles that would interest and be useful to you, no matter which gauge you model in.  The remaining copies we have are listed in the "Clearance Category".  Take a look; they're CHEAP.  These are NOT culls or damaged copies.  They are nice magazines.

About Shipping Charges:

With few exceptions, we ship with U. S. Postal Service.

However, because of the shape and dimensions of  items vary, we can’t calculate in advance an exact shipping charge. The total seen at checkout time is the MAXIMUM you will be charged.  It may be adjusted downward if we find we can ship in a way that provides the same level of service at a lower rate.  If the amount you have paid is less than the amount needed to ship by the best method, we pay the difference.  You will not pay any more than what you were charged at checkout.  The Regional Priority Flat Rate service of the USPS is what we use for most domestic addresses.  Often we will not be able to select the best shipping method until the order is pulled from inventory, weighed, and an appropriate box size is chosen.  The mix of items in the order can affect the choice of shipping method, as well.  In some cases the dimensions of the package will affect the rate. 

The amount charged on your order is the most you will be charged.  We always will try to select the lowest cost and best shipment method for your order.  If we are able to ship for a lower cost than you were charged, we will refund any overpayment that amounts  to more than $1.00. 

When we get a discounted commercial rate, the savings are passed on to you.  We do not try to make money on shipping or handling fees.  We sell books and magazines- not postage.

About International Shipping Charges:

We are a bit limited in the choice of international shipping methods.  Occasionally we find that we can use International Flat Rate Priority Mail to lower your shipping and handling costs..  When that is possible, the same policy is followed as in domestic shipping.  If the package can be shipped for a lower amount than was charged at checkout, any amount of US$1.00 or more will be refunded to your credit card or PayPal account.  As with domestic sales, the amount you are charged on checkout is the most you will pay.  We adjust charges down, but not up.
