Hi I was wondering if anyone had for sale a copy of Simplex 0-6-0 Tank A Simple Freelance Steam Locomotive. Also any information on the Super Simplex. Or for that matter any of his( Martin Evens) live steam loco building books.
I would also like to purchase set of plans, castings part built for the above.
Am bidding on "E" Bay for some bits,and books, as the local Lanarkshire Library service have little or no model engineering books and the national Library of Scotland are a bit slow, most of the Martin Evens books are out of print.
Thanks AndrewS

Dear Andrew,
For Martin Evans books try
(a) Local book fairs, even if not transport-related
book stalls at model railway/model engineering exhibitions
© Internet - these are a couple I think worth trying: (Geoff Gamble Books) (Bob Pearman Books)

There is someone at Matlock in Derbyshire, (Bill ???) but I don't have the details to hand.
Look in the adverts of 'Model Engineer' and similar mags, including the model railway magazines for other potential book sellers.
Hope you find what you want,
John Webb

Hi John

Bill Hudson of course! on the station concourse

Sorry, Geoff Gamble should read:

Trying to type too fast!

Yes - I remember now it was Bill Hudson - have you ever been to the shop? I went a few years ago now, but also met up with him at a model railway exhibition down this way last year.

Another dealer in books is Andrew Neale of Leeds who has quite extensive NG material

have not got details to hand but might be useful to try.
