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 imprint, 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, Amberley, British Bus Publishing, Capital Transport, Crecy, Key, Middleton Press, Pen & Sword, Silver Link, Transport Treasury 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 second-hand book stock codes start with a Z)

Our shop in Glossop is open week days between 10:00am and 4:30pm (CLOSED ALL DAY WEDNESDAY) and our sales stand can often be 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 going to be back on the shelves shortly so a quick call prior to your visit will ensure we've got - or can get - what you're looking for.
