Here in California... the Go-To source is International Hobbies up in Auburn.
The owner, DIck Gilman, usually has a good selection of the various Wild Swan books in his display at various model RR events...
and I've bought several Ian Rice titles from him. (but not the chassis one...)

Thanks Richard-B for this lead. It turns out that Int'l Hobbies is about 150 miles from my home. Far, but not too far. I was shocked to see the price this book (booklet?) fetches on the open market. :shock:
