You should find this site easy to use with all of the main categories listed on the menu bar at the top Many of these have sub categories.
We publish a range of illustrated historical handbooks covering all known industrial locomotives, area by area in the UK, plus some other countries. Other books include builders histories, company histories, and an invaluable guide book (Existing Locomotives - EL Series) listing every current industrial and preserved locomotive in the whole British Isles.
IRS publications are usually offered to members at a substantial discount on the normal purchase price (the members price for each book is shown on the site). You can join the Society for just £24 per year and in addition to these discounts you will receive four quarterly magazines (the Industrial Railway RECORD), six bi-monthly newsletters (Bulletins) plus access to our substantial library and archive.
