Railway CDs



Recordings of Deltics, other classic UK diesels,
aircraft, tanks, classic cars, and steam engines on CD.


Update 26th March 2017: I'm phasing in the option for you to purchase mp3 downloads of each audio album (and an ebook version of Deltic De-Mythology). Note that payments for downloads are taken via debit/credit card (not PayPal). CDs (and printed booklet) will remain available (payments via PayPal). Digital downloads are subject to VAT (if applicable for your location), but overall prices are still lower than buying the physical goods. Let me know if you have any difficulties with downloads, as this is a new venture (e-mail Ian).
