Advice? Any *must have* books for trainspotting

Recommended Posts


Couldn't find mention in forum. Are there any amazing books that show lots of photos of prototype J-trains which could be used to identify?

Not a lot of books in English. We have a thread here on the ones that are in English along with some websites



if you run across more please post them and I’ll add to the list. Also yell if you find any dead links in the list.


this website is handy for the major rr passenger stock and getting started: http://www.allaboutjapantrains.com/


there are scads of railfan books in japanese. Amazon.co.jp has a lot, but shipping can add up fast on them.
