The Library

We have one of the finest collections of books on railway and modelling topics in Europe. The library is open on Thursday track nights, when members use it to carry out historical research, to browse and to borrow books. The library is also open at other times by arrangement.

Library FAQ

I would like to model (for example) a branch line near Ilfracombe, but I can't find many photographs for the period I'm interested in. Do you have any in your library?

Almost certainly there will be many photographs of the station, buildings locos and stock for the period you are interested in. Unfortunately we cannot do the research for you. You will need to visit the library to browse through our collection. The first three visits are free. After that, you will need to join our club.

Come and meet us on Thursday evenings from 7pm to 9pm at our Keen House clubrooms, and visit the library.
