On-Line Bookshop

Robert Humm Bookshop

Robert Humm & Co specialises in rare and out-of-print books about railways, other transport and industrial history. We also stock a wide selection of new books on railways.
For over a quarter of a century our shop was in the former station master's house at Stamford railway station but we have moved to new premises in Stamford and the shop at the station is closed.
We opened at 59 Scotgate, Stamford PE9 2YQ on 15 February 2016.
We look forward to seeing all our loyal customers, and maybe some new ones, now we have finally opened the doors at the new shop.
The new premises are no great distance from Station House and remain convenient for the A1 Great North Road and the railway. Stamford station, with an hourly service on the cross-country Birmingham to East Anglia railway, is ten minutes walk.
Stamford itself is a handsome town with fine architecture, excellent shopping and restaurants - it is well worth a day out in its own right.
We offer, as always, a mail order service and welcome enquiries by phone, post or e-mail. Our knowledgeable and helpful staff are always happy to help.
In addition to the excellent shop stock we issue printed catalogues of our choicest rare and out-of-print books once or twice a year.
You will have gathered that this is not primarily an on-line business. However most of our new books and a little selection of our second-hand stock are listed on this site; most of the listings can be ordered on-line.

Web Site glitches Our sales program has two regrettable quirks:
1. If you have been whizzed back to the Home page while placing an order you'll need to find your way back to the Checkout. To do this use the Checkout link at the top left of this page.
2. On some browsers you will find the running total of your order remains at zero even when there are items on it. To check the contents of your order use the View Order link at the top of any page.

Allen, C J.
Ian Allan, 1967.
Octavo, 249 pages, photo illustrations, maps, jacket, VG. **Switzerland's alpine terrain has presented her road and railway engineers with constructional problems found nowhere else in Europe to the same extent. CJA describes the conquest of the mountains. Over half of the book concerns the major railways; the final seven chapters cover minor railways, rack railways, funiculars, cable suspension, roads and lake vessels. The very last chapter, probably only of nostagic interest these days, offers travel advice.
