Abbotsford Books has been trading since 1991, and is a member of the prestigious booktrade organisation the PBFA (Provincial Book Fairs Association). We trade almost exclusively on the Internet, however we also attend a few PBFA organised book fairs in the UK, and have stands at a few preserved railways gala days. We specialise in transport - particularly European and US railways, but with a range of other titles - and Scottish literature (hence the name of the shop!).  We are still adding to our catalogues, so check back frequently, and do, of course, feel free to contact us if you want to know more about something you've seen, or want to know if we have a particular title that hasn't made it onto the site just yet.
