Not sure this would work with my stock.Out of 5000+ I doubt if 10 are by women authors!

Promoting your bookshop can be costly and many know that money spent on conventional advertising is not the most effective option. So does it pay to be original?
Earlier this year, as part of National Woman's Month, Loganberry Books in Ohio owned and staffed entirely by women, decided to rearrange the stock to mark the event. They spent hours turning all books written by male authors so that the foredge was facing outwards - a metaphor for silencing the male voice. Not a quick task. Unsurprisingly, the idea has been featured as 'news' in the local media which, of course, cost very little.

Ticket to Dent-Book Review.
Just finished reading this, which came out a few weeks ago.In many ways not a railway book as such, more a biography of the author and his recollections of buying Dent station and running it is a very up market holiday let.It makes very interesting reading (if rather repetitive as he uses it as a marketing tool more than once!) Some of the photo reproduction is rather poor with heavy pixelation of images, which in this day and age there is no excuse for surely.I remember the station being up for sale and me wishing if I only had £300,000+ spare it would be agreat place to live and run a railway bookshop from-daydreaming again!Copies are available from Booklaw (www.booklaw.co.uk) at £25+ p&p.

Good news on the long awaited Snailbeach book (£30+ p&p).I hope to have stocks within a few days.

Just had this from Talyllyn Railway.Bit of a shock tbh!

We would like to share with you the news that Tracey will be departing the post of General Manager for the Railway to take up a new post on another heritage line. I am sure you will share with us our thanks for the effort and contribution that she has made over the past year.
Tracey has brought energy and a fresh perspective to the Railway which has enabled us to move forwards in a number of ways. Tracey will leave us in a much improved state (currently we have greatly increased passenger numbers and revenue) and has initiated many new ideas, which we are confident will bear fruit in the future. We will wish her well when she leaves for her new role and hope that she will have the success there that her enthusiasm and talents deserve.
In the meantime we will be moving forward with all appropriate speed to find the right person to develop the Railway further. Interim measures will also be put in place after Tracey leaves to ensure the momentum we have developed in recent years will not diminish.
Ian Drummond & David Ventry

Please send any comments or questions to either
Ian Drummond chairman.council@talyllyn.co.uk
or
David Ventry chairman.board@talyllyn.co.uk

A further statement has been issued by Talyllyn Railway."The Talyllyn Railway today announced that their General Manager, Tracey Parkinson, will be leaving on 7 July 2017 to take up the position of General Manager of the East Lancashire Railway.

Given the substantial reduction in new book sales over the last few years resulting in much lower print runs (gone are the days of 2500+ being printed, now on average about 1000-1200 is the norm.) it is very good to hear from the author,Martin Williams, that his superb book
"The Ruabon To Barmouth Line (Reflections of a Lost Welsh Railway)" published by Lightmoor Press in 2015 has almost sold out, with less than 150 remaining.If you want one be quick. Great value at £30.

HAY UP!

The book town of Hay-on-Wye celebrated its 40th Anniversary of Independence last week with three days of events marking this milestone. Hay was the first 'book town' to be founded and many more have been set up in countries across the world. By all accounts a large number of bibliophiles from the UK and overseas travelled to Hay to join in the celebrations - an anniversary that is to become an annual event.
This is great news as the town has been hijacked over many years by the literary 'Hay Festival' which uses its name but is set in marquees outside the town. Thus many of the visitors to the Festival miss the attractions for which the town itself is famous.
Congratulations to the organisers and everyone who helped to make this anniversary a success.

As if Amazon are not making enough in fees,they want more from August 1st.They may well kill the golden goose, as without sellers on their market place they have no business.

Dear Seller,

In the coming months, we will make several changes to features and fees relating to the sale of Media items on the Amazon Marketplace at Amazon.co.uk. We are introducing several changes that will further improve the customer experience and provide you with increased flexibility.

Set your own shipping rates for Media items

Effective 1 August 2017, you will be able to set your own shipping rates (including offering free shipping) for books, music, video, and DVD items and to set different shipping rates by region for expedited delivery or by country for international delivery. No change will be made to your shipping rates without your action.

Changes to Selling on Amazon fees for Media items

We will be making two changes to how Selling on Amazon fees* are charged for Media items (including books, music, video, DVD, software, and video games). These fee changes will not take effect until 1 August 2017 to give you time to plan accordingly.

a) Variable Closing Fees (VCF): The VCF charge in Media categories (books, music, video, DVD, software, and video games) will change as per the table below. This charge will appear as a Closing Fee (CF) instead of as a VCF to avoid confusion, as it will be a fixed fee rate and not variable.

Closing Fees Before 1st August From 1st August
Books £0.43 £0.50
Music £0.24 £0.50
DVD £0.14 £0.50
Video £1.15 £0.50
Video games and software £- £0.50

b) Referral fees: Currently, the referral fee for Media items is an applicable percentage of an item’s sales price (excluding any shipping or gift wrap charges). Effective 1 August 2017, the referral fee will instead be calculated on the total sales price (the total amount paid by the customer, including the item price and any shipping or gift wrap charges).

Back in the "good old days" when a company was putting it's prices up they just said so (sometimes even apologising), now you get all this BS first...(That's Royal Mail, Ebay and now auction sniper all putting up prices, who makes these decisions? I assume they think If we put up our prices more people will use our services, sorry the opposite applies.Royal Mail really need to be aware of this in a very competitive market)

"Update On Services

The Auction Sniper team has built the best sniping program available. Our recently released mobile snipe capability has helped our customers win more than ever before. We are powering the most effective snipers on eBay and continue to make significant improvements to our algorithms, plus our data science team is building machine learning intelligence into the Auction Sniper platform. We’ve made significant investments into Auction Sniper and continue to see the best yield for people who are focused on winning eBay auctions.

We're writing to let you know, we’ll soon be making modifications to our pricing model. These pricing modifications help us offset increased infrastructure and support costs necessary for maintaining and investing in our service. In fact, in over 15 years of service, this is the first time we’ve adjusted our pricing model. Starting April 3, 2017, the modified plan will take effect. Here is a summary of the update: For auctions won that end at $23.99 USD, the fee will now be $0.35 USD; for auctions won that end between $24.00 and $995.00 USD, the fee will be 1.5% of the final price; and for auctions won that end at $995.01 USD or more, the fee will be $14.99 USD. There are no additional fees for adult category or eBay Motors auctions. Foreign currency auctions (GBP, AU dollars, etc.) will be converted to American dollars at the daily currency exchange rate before the 1.5% fee is determined.

As has been the case in our ongoing operations, your credit card will be billed on the last week of each month if your balance exceeds $2.50 USD. If your balance is below $2.50 USD, it will be carried over to the next month for a maximum of six months at which time your account will be charged regardless of the total amount due. During months in which you purchase shipping insurance through Auction Sniper, the minimum charge becomes $1.00 USD.

As usual, Auction Sniper does not pay the seller of items you've won using our service. The fees we collect are only for the cost of using our snipe service. You must pay the seller of your won items in your normal manner.

Sincerely,

The Auction Sniper Team

Some time ago the chap running a bookshop in Hawes was castigated for charging 50p "entry fee" refundable on purchases.I fully understood why he did it.This letter in a book trade newsletter confirms what I feel about the practice, after many years of a few (very few) customers using my stall as a library!

"Sir
After all the publicity surrounding Bloomingdales Bookshop in Hawes, I decided to pay a visit as I was in the area. I was the first customer of the day and was greeted by the pleasant owner Steve Bloom. I told him of my interests and was shown to two areas where I could peruse the shelves. I was not asked for money.
However, Hawes is a small town and as I waited for the shop to open I walked around and could sense boredom in the area among many of the visitors, especially on a wet and windy weekday. While I was in the shop a number of people came in to shelter from the elements. They were asked for 50 pence as it was obvious they were not really interested in purchasing. They then left. Those who were obviously interested in books offered the money when told it would be deducted from purchases. By showing their obvious intent the request for money was declined. In no instance in my nearly two hours in the shop did any 50 pence change hands.
It is obvious that Mr Bloom's tactics work and time-wasters depart hastily. Before I saw events for myself I was inclined to think that the admission fee was outlandish. I have now completely changed my mind and wonder why other small bookshops do not copy the Hawes concept."

Looking for a really fine copy of The Railways of Great Britain-A Historical Atlas by M H Cobb?  Author published in 2003 1st edition. Two hardbound volumes in slipcase, the purpose of the Atlas is to show ALL railway lines opened to traffic in Great Britain (Passenger and Goods) (NOT Northern Ireland) between 1807 and 1994, annotated with historical detail ie owning company, opening and closing years, station renamings (with dates), tunnels (shown and named),water troughs,inclines etc. All this information is shown, superimposed in colour for each operating company   on 1 inch to 1 mile Ordnance Survey Maps (latest being 1971) So you get all the map detail ie towns, villages, rivers,etc etc in 1 inch scale PLUS the route of all railways clearly added on top.Volume  1 has 434 pages,(all maps)  volume 2 has 213 pages of maps PLUS 12 pages of family trees of railway company ownership, plus 31 page index! Each volume is some 13 inches by 12 inches so the detail is clear and legible.High quality printing and binding in purpose made slipcase. A real labour of love. This IS the ultimate railway atlas.Each volume is truly fine,(no inscriptions) the slipcase is also fine.A better used set you will struggle to find.It weighs over 8 kilo's!  Due to weight, postal costs (particularly overseas) will be substantial.  £250.00 + p&p OR Post Free to any UK address for payment by Bank Transfer or Cheque.Cheapest on the Interent!
I believe it is currently back in print at £345+ p&p

Amazon continually ask me why I don't offer my stock to overseas customers.Simple I told them- I don't want to lose £s on the shipping.Their allowance is totally inadeqaute for 90% of books.Their UK allowance of £2.80 is also below the parcel rate of £2.85 (upto 2kgs) never mind the cost of packaging.
It took them several weeks to come back to me with this gobbledygook.So add it to the book price they say-that's what I do already.Buy DIRECT from me by email or phoning taht way you and I both save!!

Dear Seller,

Greetings from Amazon Seller Support.

I am writing to you regarding the issue raised by you about the shipping credit for BMVD credits. Kindly allow me to address your query.

As informed previously by my colleague, unfortunately for Books, Music ,Videos and DVDs Amazon sets all the shipping prices to provide a wholesome buying experience for Sellers on this platform.

Please be informed that Amazon sets the same shipping price for Books, Music ,Videos and DVDs for all the seller's on the Amazon platform. As such, it is not possible for any seller to change the shipping credits for items falling under these categories. You may however choose the carrier and method of your choice.

However, I understand that due to the shipping price you are facing loss on your side in selling BMVD products as the shipping companies charge more than the shipping price allowed on these products. You may however include the loss faced due to this in the item price of the products. This will help you avoid the loss you face due to the low shipping price allowed to be charged.

I was also able to understand that the previous associate have put across your request to change the shipping price for BMVD products as a feature request to the Business Team. However, let me inform you that the decision on this regard by the Business team will effect all the seller's on the Amazon platform and it can't be made without testing it first. Hence we will not be able to provide you with any specific date as to when the changes might go through.

I hope I was able to address your issue.

Please be confident that Seller support is just a mail away from you in case you find any difficulty. Kindly do not hesitate to write back to us if you need any clarification or any kind of support.

Have a lovely day!

Thank you for selling with Amazon.

Issue 224 will be on THE DELTICS and is sure to be a best seller, due out late March, advance orders taken.

How NOT to sell railway books-

1-Place full page advert in two consecutive issues of well known finescale railway modelling magazine listing books for sale, listed by publisher.
2-Don't have access to them when you get enquiries about edition and condition.
3-Invite "offers" despite 2 above.
and I assume
4-Wonder why the potential buyer (me) backs off.
Hey ho................

Just a few years ago copies of Colonel Cobb's Atlas were like gold dust and fetching £200+ I notice there are 3 sets on Ebay now, all under £200 (2 under £150) and no bids so far.It is of course back in print (by his son) at £345!!Great tho it is, that is way too much money.

Just finished reading The Settle-Carlisle Railway 1850-1990 (The Buiding and Saving of a Great Railway A LIne of Critical Decisions) By Martin Pearson.A fascinating look at some of the political goings on leading upto the day in April 1989 when sense and reason kicked in and BR were refused permission to close the line.
If you are interesting in the politics behind railways or are involved in a group trying to re-open a line (or prevent closure of an existing one) it is well worth a read.Well done to The Friends of the S&C Line for all their work way back in 1980's (which continues to this day) that without doubt helped save this wonderful line for us all to enjoy.
Copies of this book can be bought form The Friends on line shop (I am not stocking it) here is the link. £13 well spent!

This is a quote from Heritage Railway magazine "Because the train line exists there is no reason why it cannot go ahead......The plans are in very early stages but why not bring people to our historic train station via public transport" I will reveal who is quoted as saying this idc.A clue-it's some one who should really know much much better!

Due to a page corruption all previous "Nigels Notes" are lost but hey they were old news!
So lets start 2017 afresh.............


Good to see Heritage Railway magazine paying homage to Ian Allan Publishing, following their sale to Crecy Publishing.I suspect without Ian Allan's spotting books (which apparently in the 50's and 60's sold over a million abc's every year!)we would have very few railway enthusiasts, many of whom are the same people that today operate our heritage lines.I hope Crecy realise what a legacy they have acquired.The market for railway books is very different (and much smaller) in 2017 than it was upto say even10 years ago as the "old guard" pass away.Print runs are tiny nowadays (often 1200 or less) compared with the heyday of publishing when 5000+ was normal.
