Question Help with a book please.

Apologies in advance but this is the nearest thread I could find that may answer a railway book question.
The book, Britain's Historic Railway Buildings by Gordon Biddle. I have the 2003 version but it has been updated in, I think, 2011, Does anyone know how different it is from the 2003 print? It's a great book but quite expensive, even second hand, if it's been radically updated I would go for it but if it's just been lightly tinkered with, maybe not. Thanks all.

Can't answer your question, but it might be worth asking at your local libraries if they have a reference section with a copy.

Might be worth checking online with your county library service to see if they have one in any libraries.

If not you could ask them to get one in from another county.

PS

They don't seem to have a copy in Suffolk or Cambridge.

PPS

Cheapest one on Ebay is this.

Thank's Philip & Richard. Will take all advice on board. Thought I'd ask the forum first. Saw the ebay item and there is another copy for sale at 29 elsewhere. Thanks both

Difference discovered.

The difference between the two editions, as far as I can see, is that every entry has an accompanying photo in the latest book whereas the earlier copy does not. Plenty of great photo's but not for every item mentioned.
