About MDS Books

MDS Book Sales is a specialist transport bookseller and publisher. We stock books on buses, trains, light rail, tramways, trolleybuses, shipping, motoring, aircraft, commercial vehicles, emergency services and more, plus DVDs, calendars and bargains. Our associated company Venture Publications produce a wide range of books on the same subjects including the acclaimed Prestige and Super Prestige Series of titles.

We stock all major and minor publishers including Adam Gordon, British Bus Publishing, Capital Transport, Crecy, Irwell Press, Middleton Press, Silver Link, Amberley, Woolybus, etc.

You'll also find details of all new and forthcoming titles from Venture Publications here first.

We also have an extensive second-hand and out of print selection available, all titles being fully catalogued and listed individually. (If in doubt secondhand book stock codes start with a Z)

Our shop in Glossop is open week days between 9:30am and 5:30pm and our sales stand can often been found at the weekends around the UK! See our events page for more information.

If you're coming for a specific book it's as well to check first. With over 5,000 books on our list we can't keep them all in stock all the time but if the one you want is out of stock it's probably only 24-48 hours (in normal circumstances) from being back on the shelves so a quick call will ensure we've got - or can get - what you're looking for.

PLEASE NOTE THAT WHILST WE ARE OPEN FOR MAIL ORDER AND INTERNET ORDERS NOW OUR SHOP IS NOT OPEN TO THE PUBLIC AT PRESENT DUE TO CORONAVIRUS RESTRICTIONS.
