Stagecoach Books, plans and
| I get so many requests for information on the stagecoach that
I have decided to create a page for this vehicle. Some of this info
will be for model makers and some will be how to build full size
stagecoaches and some of the books listed will be for the
historian seeking more information on the days that the stagecoach
connected the west to the rest of the world. There are also a few kits
and models. These items will
also be found in the other pages - but this will sum it up on one page
as best as I can. Some of these books are out of print but
often I can find a copy for you if requested. I do not have ONLINE ordering - you will
have to call with credit card, mail a check or money order or use
