I am selling the remaining books from my British model railway collection. The prices are Canadian $8.00 each, and I will consider offers on purchases of more than one to clear the stock. Postage and any insurance is extra at cost. Pick up/delivery can also be arranged in the Calgary area.

I also have some Street Level card kits in 4 m.m./foot scale that I have placed on ebay.ca. These are Southern Railway/Southern Region stations (Chessington Branch), shelters, 'Odeon' style stations in one case, and a glass house signal box. They are basic coloured card kits that could do with plastic doors and windows to give them some depth.

The link to my ebay advert is 00/HO 1:76 Scale Street Level Models Southern Railway/Region Card Kits..

You can purchase them through the ebay advert or include them in a book order.
