There use to be a company that specialized in selling narrow gauge books. I bought a couple way back when. Is there a company like that these days?

I don't know about that but if you are looking for old and out of print books, check out ABE BOOKS and then type narrow gauge in the search criteria. How much time do you have to look at the puter, and how much money do you want to spend??? I find something every time I look there.

Charley Smalls book..Rails to the rising sun.../ rails to the setting sun..if you can find a set..quite pricey...due rarity..
