Latest news: I have now uploaded my Summer List to the Latest Arrivals page.      

We sell second hand books on railways, overseas railways, model railways, canals, buses & trams, and industrial history.

Also on traction engines and maritime topics.

Batterdale Books is a specialist mail-order business located in the ancient cathedral city of York in the north of England.  Our main specialist subject has always been railways, and we maintain one of the largest stock of second hand books on British and Overseas railways, including model railways, in the north of England.  We also have large stocks of books on buses, trams, trolleybuses, canals and industrial history.

We pride ourselves on our efficient mail order service and on the quality of our packaging.  We also take great care to describe every title posted on our web site as accurately as possible.
