John Christopher takes a fresh look at 100 years of Britain's most iconic car company, Aston Martin. From the origins of the Aston Martin marque, through the gadget-laden stars of numerous James Bond films, to the prestigious super-cars that continue to be market leaders throughout the world. Aston Martin was nearly called Bamford Martin, as founders Lionel Martin and Robert Bamford were already selling cars together, but in the end the company was named after the Aston Hill speed hill-climb near Aston Clinton in Buckinghamshire. Their first car was produced in 1915 but war and financial troubles often tempered progress and the company went through various changes in ownership on its way to becoming the global icon it is today. Following the typical Story book format, this sleekest of cars is celebrated with a wealth of colour photographs, facts and statistics.

Aston Martin is now more than a century old – and what a century it has been. Since its birth in London on the eve of the First World War, the company has experienced the highs of racing triumph – most famously in the 1959 Le Mans 24-hour race – and the lows of bankruptcy, yet throughout it all has been in the first rank of British marques. Published in association with the Aston Martin Heritage Trust and written by enthusiast Richard Loveys, Aston Martin is a fully illustrated history of the company that has created some of the the world's best loved and most widely respected cars, including James Bond's iconic DB5. It covers the cars themselves, the personalities and talents who have shaped Aston Martin from owners to engineers, the drivers who have shared with the company in racing glory, and the centenary celebrations of 2013.

This family of fast, alluring and supremely elegant cars first appeared in 1958 in the form of the 240bhp 140mph DB4. The response from the motoring press and the motoring public was rapturous, though the price of this handbuilt supercar was beyond the reach of all but a favoured few. The coupe was soon joined by a 266bhp Vantage version, by the 302bhp short-chassis DB4 GT(only 75 produced) and by a convertible. The DB4 GT Zagato, most powerful of all at 314bhp, is also the rarest, only 19 examples being made. The 1964 replacement for the DB4 was the DB5, again offered as coupe or convertible, with standard 282bhp engine or the 314bhp Vantage unit, and the line concluded with the 1965-70 DB6, with cut-off tail, better aerodynamics and in Vantage form having 325bhp. All these cars remain as special and as exclusive as they ever were, and they command correspondingly high prices based on three factors â?? condition, history and most of all originality. Here James Taylor gives full details of correct original specification and equipment for all these cars, backed up by in-depth colour photography of outstanding examples of all models and variants. Body panels, external trim and badging, paint colours, interior trim, dashboard, instruments and controls, under-bonnet components, engine and transmission, lamps, and other features right down to the tool kit, are all covered.

For Bentley there is no contradiction between supreme luxury and sheer exhilaration. This was James Bond's first car, the record-setting ride of the Bentley Boys, the vision of founder W.O. Bentley-- "a fast car, a good car, the best in its class"-- and a vision that is still unfolding. Here is a grand tour through one of automotive's truly distinctive brands.

Beginning in the mid 1970s, when the TOPS numbering system was first introduced, David Ratcliffe now takes readers on a new journey through the private owner wagon era, bringing the story of this important part of the railways up to date. With an informative introduction which puts the modern private owner wagon scene in context with the recent trends, the author explains everything from two-axle to bogie vehicles. Also included are two useful tables detailing the changes and current classification used by the TOPS numbering system, and examples relevant to explaining the decline of mixed freight services, the growth of block trains, and the consequent influence on the private wagons industry.The wagons are presented in the following broad groupings: 1. Covered hoppers and bulk powder wagons 2. Open hoppers, minerals, opens and tipplers 3. Car carriers 4. Miscellaneous (including vans and specials) 5. Flats and conflats 6. Tanks (all types)This split reflects the balance of types within the domestic wagon fleet, although not all groups are given equal prominence. For example, there were not many batches of purely British vans. As with other volumes in the series, this brilliant new book includes a fantastic array of colour illustrations supplemented by detailed captions to inspire modellers to enhance their layouts. This is the reference source that railway modellers across the country have been waiting for!
