Modellers!
Avoid this book lest ye be tempted:

The Railway Products of Baguley-Dreary Ltd and its Predecessors
Civil and Etherington
Industrial Railway Society 2008
ISBN 978 901556 44 1
Hardback £29.99p

Light on drawings - only seven - but dozens of clear Works Photos of all manner of standard and narrow gauge Light Railway equipment, steam, petrol, diesel and electric. Plus the kind of detail above on each and every machine built and lots of explanatory text and company/product history.
