This is one of the earliest unified national timetables for Scotland, prepared for the newly-created Scottish Region of BR.Passenger services on a number of branches had been withdrawn in 1940 as wartime economies were sought. The 1948 timetable continues to record their existence, and directs travellers to the replacement bus services.

The Western Region of British Railways covers the south-west of England, the south Midlands and most of Wales. Many routes are rural and sparsely-populated, but the South Wales coalfield contrasts with a dense railway network criss-crossing and tunneling the hilly terrain.The spelling of many Welsh station names have been altered (de-Anglicised) in recent years. Timetable World reflects the original names.

The Western Region in 1965 has lost one of its premier routes, transferred to the London Midland region - Paddington to Birmingham Snow Hill and onwards to Shrewsbury and Birkenhead. The Birmingham route hangs on for another year or so until electrification from Euston is completed, and several rural routes in the South West are also on borrowed time. The Severn Tunnel carries car-trains for another year also, awaiting completion of the first road bridge.This is a re-issued Winter timetable after the cutbacks of 1964. To 2011, train fares have more than doubled in real terms (retail price index up 15-fold, rail fares up 33-fold).
