>the "Railcentres" series
I have Leeds & Bradford - the adjective - "Exhaustive" seems appropriate.

I would echo the suggestion that you visit specialist book shops and browse; a lot of exhibitions have one or more book sellers too. For the period you are modelling, colour photography was becoming more common so you might get some colour guide as well. For the mid 50's period I model, it's almost all black and white. The other thing I've noticed is that most of the subjects are locomotives. The trains and general railway infrastructure get much less of a look in.

And finally, keep an eye on places like "Bookends". I picked up a collection of Eric Treacy photographs in one of those. Presumably some publisher did a limited rerun.

>indeed there are a couple in the shopping centre near Bury station
That's a good point; local shops are more likely to stock railway books about the local area than any other railway category which makes getting books about up t' North in t' South rather more difficult. Books about railways in Oxfordshire? no problem.
