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for Scotland, prepared for the newly-created Scottish Region of BR.Passenger services on a number of branches had been withdrawn in 1940 as wartime economies were sought.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.
