Cheona Publications was first started in 1995 when Geoff Gamble produced a book on the British Railways Diesel Multiple Units with Brian Golding. This book contains informative text and 360 line diagrams for each of the DMU classes including the 4-wheel railbuses, Southern Region DEMUs and the Blue Pullmans.

Geoff then developed the well received 'Railways In Profile' series of books in 1996, which started with a look at the British Railway Open and Hopper type wagons. Just before Geoffs untimely death at the end of 2000, Book No. 11 "British Railway Vans - Volume 2" was published.


The site is split into several sections accessed from the links below. At present there are seven different book series and these can be viewed by clicking on one of the links below to take to the books. Each book has a brief description and excerpts.
