Welcome to Xpress : The Railway Operating Specialist

Books written with the authority of experience! Britain's principal professional producer of transport matter; Xpress differs from railway publishers in that all its staff had full-time careers in Railway Operating during the BR(steam) era and therefore have a professional connection with our subject matter.

The majority of our books are concerned with the minutiae of Railway Operating as it was on British Railways during the steam era and the greatest pains are taken to present the reader with an accurate and highly detailed account of steam operating matters with the emphasis on features such as train and traffic working, engine diagramming and carriage working.

Our list of titles is continually expanding and we look forward to hearing from you in the near future. Our preferred mode of communication is the telephone – 01286 870817 and are delighted to hear from readers, present and prospective and to receive suggestions for future titles.
