Wild Swan Books

Beautiful books created with care

Established in 1979, Wild Swan have gained a reputation for producing quality books to a consistently high standard. Although the choice of titles covers a wide variety of railway related topics, the range is probably most closely associated with railway modelling, branch line histories, rolling stock and locomotive profiles. Whatever the theme of each book, we ensure that the subject has been properly explored and described, with a well written text based upon, and backed up by, thorough research and the experience and interest of the author(s).
