Paul Rollinson, the train book seller

Paul at a model train show in happy pre-pandemic times.

Paul at a model train show in happy pre-pandemic times.

Introductory

By Charles:
Paul has been a "fixture" at model train shows in Ontario for many years. His specialty is (out of print) railway books and related print memorabilia of all kinds. This page is offered as a service to readers of my website who may be hunting for this, that or the other.

By Paul:
First, I would like to thank Charles for the opportunity to post part of my collection/ inventory to all train and transportation hobbyists/ collectors.
The condition of the books is reflected by the usual category descriptions:

Fine (F) –  Like new (LN) – good (G) – [my term] a bit shabby (BS) – hard cover (HC) – soft cover (SC) – paperback (PB) – dust jacket (DJ).

They are priced based on the abebooks.com inventory prices. 

IMPORTANT: All my prices include shipping.
Shipping is a significant part of the purchase, and this should be taken into account when comparing prices.

I try to be the cheapest "game in town" by charging in Canadian, not American dollars (so you are saving 30% over on-line prices, which are quoted in US$).

Please note though that I cannot match prices on eBay or on other auction sites. Enough said. Here are my lists:

As previously mentioned offers  or trades will be entertained. There is not a lot that I don’t have at this point but I am still buying. The next list will focus on logging and West Coast with a smattering of U.S. and new additions to previous specifically focused lists If you want to talk  JUST CALL PAUL 705-538-2281

As previously mentioned all prices include postage and are in Canadian funds. If your club or museum would like to receive my monthly list you may contact me at hoostrahohp@gmail.com. The usual symbols apply to this list. I have been known to consider reasonable offers. The next list will have Live Steam hard covers, back issues of Diesel Era, CN lines and CP tracks, East Coast odds and ends and some Toronto based titles. There will be a smattering of U.S. titles as well.   Stay well everyone.

PAUL'S LIST 4A

 

Welcome to list 4a. This will be the start of  logging and narrow gauge( 15 inch to 4 foot  6) railway  titles  with some  additions of heavy machinery, industrial railways and trucks. We will add a little Grand Trunk, some deep pocket items, some ephemera and a taste of some decidedly American lines. This sounds like a list of cooking  books . Alphabetical order has gone out the window for this list-there is way too much stuff.

The next list no. 5 will be regionalised with railway histories and local county /township histories. That way you can get a sense of the importance and the history of railways and the cultural/geographical development of your area. Focus will be on Western Ontario, Northern Ontario and Toronto area. We will get to Eastern Ontario and the Niagara area, for list number 6. As with the other lists postage is included or indicated in the price.

 

PAUL's LIST 5

 

      List 5                 Regional   Histories and the Rails That Ran Through Them

 

   This list will try to do a little more than just list rail books. The surrounding  area  of rail lines were important for the life of railroads and this list will include local and very specific histories across Ontario. This tends to be where my interests are focussed. As there are a lot of books in this general category, we will call this list 6A and the focus will be Northern Ontario   and   Western Ontario. For  me  the  line  for  Northern Ontario starts somewhere around Parry Sound as the southern  boundary  and Hudson’s Bay as the Northern  boundary. I’m sure a lot of you will disagree with me, but it’s my list so you will have to deal with it. I’m fond  of  the  Sudbury  area ,we will start there and work around that as a hub. Western Ontario starts around London for me and goes west and north  from there.

     I will be adding a list of books that are  duplicates , not needed  material(authors I don’t sell a lot of these days) and DAMAGED books. I will not be describing them completely . They will be priced at 4.50 to 15.00 each and postage will be extra. As always, prices are in Canadian and postage is  included with individually priced books (No.’s 1  to 59) .

  All the next titles are duplicates,damaged  or authors that I sell less often than others .  I need to make room on my shelves.  The prices run  5 to 15  plus postage  which in a lot of cases means these are 20.00 or less. I will send the best copy of each title to the first person who orders it. After the first one goes the condition can get less fine , the cost naturally will go down in this case.  All copies, at this point, range from mint to  not so great.
