Railroad Books & Publications
P.O. Box 247, Cottleville, MO 63338 USA
You will need the free Adobe Acrobat Reader to be able to view and print it.
These titles are books that are published in the same format as the Quick Pic Book series with a spiral binding for use in modeling even though they include many unique unusual or even rare images.
The images in them are ones
we feel would be of benefit or interest to our readers but do not
fit into the other two major series.
Quick Pic Books
Each book is a photographic guide
of one subject or class paying particular attention to the details
with many never before published views. These titles are prized by manufacturers and modelers because the photos included show the details better than anything else.
Quick Pic COLOR
These books are all in color. These titles do not show the
details in as great of depth as
the regular Quick Pic Books but
are intended to show the
subjects in color to show weathering and usage.
They also may include images
that did not necessarily fit into
the Quick Pic Book format.
