ARHS Bookshop, Sydney

 
  David10 Station Master

Noticed that the ARHS has sold its building in Redfern and appears to be in the process of vacating. Can't find anything on their website about it, has the bookshop closed permanently?

No.

The bookshop is moving to the Sydney Terminal Concourse further East than and smaller than their previous shop in that location.

The Archives and the Railway Digest and ARH offices are moving to Alexandria.

The new addresses and phone numbers should appear on the website but asking in the bookshop when it opens should work.

The ARHS bookshop will open at its new location at Central tomorrow.

Didn't see any sign of it today, seems that all of the shops on the concourse are already occupied.

The April Members' Newsletter said that the new bookshop would open on 1 May.
But it seems like it hasn't happened yet.

I'm glad to hear they will be back at Central at least.  Its where the shop belongs.

The Sydney Coach Terminal shop on the main concourse opposite platform 2/3 is being vacated this week. Presumably this is to become the new ARHS bookshop.

It is. There was a delay in moving out the current tenants, thus the ARHS is in limbo waiting for the space.

The move is excellent news. I visit Sydney four or five times a year, and it was always so easy to drop in to the shop at Central. When it was forced to move to its little back street at Redfern it was a pain in the backside. Now it's easy again for slack old blokes like me.
Similarly in Melbourne - the ARHS bookshop used to be very accessible in the CBD; now it's out in the sticks at Mont Albert and you have to make considerably more effort to get there.

So that's where it went. I'm usually in Melbourne for only a short time through the day, so it was pretty convenient. Mont Albert isn't.

Firstly, it's not the ARHS bookshop, the Railfan Shop is owned by the ARE.

The location is not just inconvenient, it's only open Wed-Sat so you need to pick your days. It is nice and handy to Mont Albert station, but during the week many trains pass by express. I live in the Eastern suburbs, and when I go to the city I pass through Mont Albert station, which on surface looks ideal to drop in on the way past. But the morning trains from my station don't stop there, so for me it would a train to Box Hill, change to a stopper, get off at Mont Albert, do my shopping, and then stopping-all-stations to the city.

Information that i was given yesterday 7.5.2019. Is that it should be Open at the end of May,2019.

And will be located at Central Station, at the western end of the Main Concourse, opposite Platform 1.

But will not be as big as the old Book Shop that used to be in the old Booking Lounge.

They were originally offered other space in the precinct along platform 1. They were not forced to to move away.

It was an ARHS Management decision to move.
