AUGUST 2018 EUROPEAN RAIL TIMETABLE
Contains the latest schedules, information on rail passes more.
EUROPE BY RAIL 15TH EDITION
Written by two highly experienced travellers, the book contains useful tips about how to plan your journey, what tickets to buy and where to stop off along the way. There are special sections for holders of rail passes, including Interrail and Eurail, as well as information on night and cruise trains. The country guide summarizes key information about travelling by train through each of the 48 countries listed. Apart from being full of good advice and up-to-date information, the book is also a good read. With its nicely opinionated style and lots of cameo accounts of travel history, there's plenty here for armchair travellers too.

This map shows all major passenger rail routes in Europe (other than those of the suburban networks of major cities) and is the ideal companion to the European Rail Timetable. Important Tourist Railways are also shown, many of which operate only during the tourist season.
