About meI write books, arrange exhibitions, collect, curate and deal in transport publicity and model railways. The website tells you a lot more. Early in 2009 most of the Forsythe Collection (not the stock) was saved for the nation and relocated to the National Railway Museum Search Engine archive. News from York is brought together at . Railwayana, Public Transport, Local History and Nauticalia auctions were moderated at (now ceased). The best current link to see what I am offering is at . I welcome interest from people wanting auctions set up from our for sale material on a no obligation basis. Normally, I respond to any communication within 72 hours and if that is not possible post here to notify of absence. Since September 2010 has become our professional front door.For chat check out the yahoo group Transport Timetables or Facebook. For niche interests Facebook has to be an excellent way to find potential buyers. I am on Facebook as Robert Forsythe (Prudhoe if you have to add a location) and Robertatforsythe. Friends welcome.

About my libraryA sizeable library covering many subjects but railways, transport and industrial heritage subjects dominate. There are many maps and the subject of grey literature is huge hence the collection now at York as above. The library in all aspects is as much my wife Fiona Forsythe's as mine. She is the chartered librarian with two degrees in that subject from University of Northumbria at Newcastle and from UCW Aberystwyth.

I have a wide interest in railway matters, but my main centers of interest concern trams and railway history. I read effectively English, as well as German and by means of a dictionary, Spanish and Italian. I am member for a long time of the LRTA and I often collaborate in the French and of North Africa news in ' Tramways and Urban Transit '. I am also member of the ERA and of R&LHS in the United States.
The perfect email is:
For a good range of free scholarly books this is an excellent source and printed and properly bound versions will be supplied.
Hi - I just noticed you read Marion Carr - Call of the running Tide - I thought I was the only one - no other interest other than she is my mother!! Lianne
Just read your review of 'To Western Scottish Waters'. Don't you just hate it when that happens?

In a past life, I did proof reading for a minor Government department. This taught me that the bigger the typeface or the more prominent the text, the worse the typo...
