At Branchstow Books we have been specialising in railway publications since 2019 and bookselling since 2004. Based in Staffordshire and family-run, our particular emphasis is to find and champion UK railway titles from individual authors and independent publishers that are maybe small, new, or difficult to source. With this approach, we offer railway books that are not widely available, and carefully select only the finest books to the extent that each one comes with our recommendation.

If you are an author or independent publisher of railway books then we would be pleased to hear from you.

With a lifelong passion for railways, particularly steam, this interest has evolved into many forms, from photography, model layouts, published articles for a national railway magazine to establishing Branchstow Books.

We are proud of our longstanding reputation in subscribing to traditional values of customer service in association with our extensive knowledge.

Reproduced below are just a few of the kind comments Branchstow, a trading name of First Pasture,  have received from our customers.
