Does anyone have any copies of the above that they are willing to sell?

Section 45 is, more or less,
Caerffili, but where is 48A? I have also been looking for 45. Does anyone know of a second copy?
I think we will have to find a library and use their copying machine.
Does anyone know which library keeps copies? Cardiff perhaps. Or perhaps we will have to use Aberystwyth's copy at Nat Lib. The disadvantage of page copying is that Mr Cooke's books can be quite thick (60 pages and more which could run us into copyright problems, as well as copying charges).

The Lightmoor Press are re-issuing revised versions of Tony Cooke's track plans books although 45 and 48A are not yet available.
See http://lightmoor.co.uk/category.php?section=Track%20Plans for the latest information.

Note the comment that "When the final nine parts which will complete the series are eventually issued, the entire GWR and BR(WR) system will be covered". This seems to imply that those 9 have never been issued as yet, although there is no indication of which these are, and they need not be in Wales.
