"I just thought I'd let you know how pleased I am with my first order. I came across you by chance whilst searching Google..... The two books are exactly what I have been looking for........ With a two day turn-around & reasonable post/packing charges, I will certainly be ordering from you again". Mr. R. L. U.K.May 2006
"I was recently in receipt of a couple of books I made the mistake of ordering from you. Unfortunately on opening the package I realised that you had sent me, unrequested, your catalogue. Quite frankly I was appalled that you are allowed to distribute this publication. On a brief perusal I found over £1000 of books that I would want to order. I have had to hide this publication in case it is seen by the rest of the household." Yours disgusted, Mr. H.B. UK June 2006
"I received my order today and want to thank you for your prompt, courteous service. To say I am impressed with the books is an understatement..... Camden has earned top position on my railroad and general mechanical sources list".
Mr. A. E. U.S.A.Oct 2006
"... I'm impressed and appreciative that your staff took the trouble to contact me directly. I'm also impressed that the book arrived so quickly. Post Offices around the world generally get a bad rap. Personally I think delivering a parcel to the other side of the world in a week is a pretty good effort. Congratulations and thank you again for such good service".

I ordered 4 Ton Pruissen DVDs on Monday. They arrived first thing on Tuesday. How's that for service - guard's van of technology indeed!!
Oh; the DVDs are magnificent!!

My last Tuesday's order arrived on Thursday and the order I placed late morning on Friday arrived on Monday afternoon. Thank you for such speedy service. Phil Girdlestone's CAMELS AND CADILLACS is a really excellent book. Thank you for stocking it and bringing it to my attention in your advertisement in the RAILWAY MAGAZINE. The other four books I ordered after your latest catalogue arrived on Friday are very good. As an old customer you seem to be getting better and better.

A note to let you know your very well packed parcel of books has just arrived and when opened also had a most unexpected but very welcome refund of 66p which I'm assuming was the difference between the maximum p&p price listed in your current catalogue and the cost of sending the order via a carrier. Sufficient to say I'm delighted (again) with the superb service I receive from you folks. Very many thanks again.

Mr. M.P. U.S.A. 2014
“Goodness! You must have someone on permanent standby,
cellotape in one hand, wrappings in the other. Can't really get
faster response than this. Splendid service.

"What an amazing surprise to receive my replacement in this morning’s post! Thank you. Your considerable efforts to supply my lost order are greatly appreciated. I consider the books and information from Camden Miniature Steam Services to be unique in this world, and one of the best services model engineers could have. There is no other business offering books exactly tailored to what model engineers and steam enthusiasts really want to read and know about. Keep up the excellent work."
Mr. G.C. Australia 2015
Camden surpasses itself ..... again. I ordered very late on Friday afternoon and my DVDs arrived at high noon on Saturday. A 20 hour turn round. Beat that for service!!
Mr J R Morton UK Jan 2016
To the folks at Camden,
WOW, what fast efficient service. 6 days from postage in the UK to New Zealand, through Customs, onto the mail centre, then out to the Rural Mail Contractor to our mail box. All books well packaged and undamaged. Great service.
Mr Dave Scott New Zealand July 2016
short email just to confirm that my order was well and safe delivered, all is OK.
Thanks for your efficiency... and your always great range of intersting books!
