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 tunnelling the hilly terrain. The spelling of many Welsh station names has been altered (de-Anglicised) in recent years. Timetable World reflects the original names.

There are some fine street maps of Britain's major cities. The London map shows most lines terminating further out than they currently do - at Bishopsgate, Nine Elms, and outside Paddington.

Four sheets are used for this pleasing railway map of Switzerland. Hatching is used to show the mountainous terrain in immense detail. The first Lötschberg tunnel, having opened in that year, is shown with the bypass that was built when the initial bore was innundated by water. The St Gotthard tunnel had been open since 1882 but the east-west Furka Oberalp Railway was not built until 1926.

Railways are shown but this map is more useful for its coverage of the Reichautobahn network. Construction of autobahns finally ceased in 1941 as all available men were needed for military service. It shows the alignment of some in Poland (the Berlinka) and Czechia that were abandoned never to be completed, and numerous alignments that were in advanced planning by 1940.

Scotland was served by the London, Midland & Scottish (LMS) and London North Eastern Railway [LNER] companies prior to the formation of British Railways in 1948. 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 Passenger services on a number of branches had been withdrawn in 1940 as wartime economies were sought.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.

An early employee timetable covering the industrial NE of England. Lines are working day and night. Traffic separation is clear - until you spot a 'mineral' (probably coal empties) conveying 'market passengers' at 21:00 (9pm). Probably an informal practice when folk had had enough at the pub, regularised in the working timetable.

We publish a complete set of 1955 regional timetables to act as a baseline for comparisons. The Plan was flawed, because it failed to address the modal shifts to road already taking place and was followed just a few years later with the sweeping changes of first Beeching Report.

Timetable World believes this undated map would have been published in Germany around 1871. It shows the political boundaries as they became after the Franco-Prussian War 19 July 1870 – 10 May 1871 and a Germany united by Bismarck, proclaimed on 18th January 1871. The Ottoman empire is still shown encompassing Serbia, which was nominally independent after 1862 but only recognised as such in 1878, which puts an upper limit on the political boundaries. Using railway development for clues: 1. Lemberg (Lviv) to Kijeff (Kyiv), opened in 1871, is shown as operational 2. Zagreb (Agram)-Sisak-Banja Luka line opened in 1869 is shown as incomplete, and 3. the Fréjus between France and Italy which opened 1871 is shown as operational. Data for Great Britain and Ireland seems to be some years out-of-date. The Highland main line in Scotland, which opened 1865, is missing as are Castlebar-Westport (1866), Manulla-Foxford (1868), Carrickfergus-Larne (1862) in Ireland.

The RCH maps provide an interesting snapshot of the railway network. Scotland's network is largely unchanged since our 1912 map but has been consolidated down to two companies. The Cromarty branch shown north of Inverness persists long after it had been abandoned incomplete (1915) and the track lifted. Coastal shipping is much denser than today, with mainland and island communities all looking to the sea for transport.

The railways in Northern Ireland that were part of the LMS passed to the London Midland Region of British Railways; they were purchased by the Northern Ireland Government in 1949. Other 'out-of-area' lines reached South Wales, the south coast (at Bournemouth) and the Essex coast (Shoeburyness).

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.

Bradshaw's continues to include timetables for all Ireland; the Irish Free State was inaugurated in December 1922. The London Midland & Scottish Railway was formed the following year, its main two constituents already owning railways in Ireland, one based in Northern Ireland, the other straddling the border.

DB (the German Federal Railway) produced this substantial timetable to cover the northern half of the former West Germany. The timetable has clear sections for International, long-distance and medium-distance services across the whole country, and then regional sections covering the myriad of local and branch services. German railways are now extensively electrified but, at the time, there were almost no electric services in the north of the country. Diesel rail-buses were widely used on local services but steam was slow to be replaced (surviving to 1975).

A 24-page booklet of maps published in Polish commemorating the opening of the Trans-Siberian Railway in 1904 across the whole of Russia (which included Poland at the time) to Vladivostok. There are some rare photographs of newly-opened country included towards the end. The original line crossed Manchuria. The branch to Khabarovsk was subsequently extended to connect at a second point on the Trans-Siberian (at Chita) to give a longer route wholly within Russian territory.

Timetable World believes this undated map would have been published in Germany around 1905. The map has been annotated in pencil by a cataloguer as “1871” but the data is much later. How much later has been the subject of an online debate. Using political boundaries, an upper limit on the date can be set as 1905 - the date when the union between Norway and Sweden was dissolved – and a lower date of 1881 when Thessaly (the region around Larissa) was acquired by Greece. When looking closely there is a suggestion that some of the railway data may have been updated by hand. The Simplon tunnel between Switzerland and Italy, opened in 1906, is shown in a bolder weight than other completed lines, and may have originally been printed as “under construction”. Similarly, Trieste – Klagenfurt in Austria-Hungary. On the other hand, the Great Central Railway in England opened in 1897 is shown as under construction, presumably because manual updates were only applied selectively to lines of interest to German-speaking users. Other railway clues are that the Lynton & Barnstaple opened 1898 is shown, the Mallaig extension to the West Highland line in Scotland opened in 1901 is shown, the South Wales and Bristol cut-off of 1903 is shown - but not the 1906 Castle Cary to Langport.

Poland was given access to the sea - the Polish Corridor - as part of the 1919 Versailles Treaty. It was largely populated by Poles but had the effect of splitting Germany into two pieces. The ethnically-mixed city of Danzig (now Gdansk) was given free-state status. The map is primarily of German postal districts but it shows the railways in great detail. Towns now in Polish territory are shown still holding their former German names.

With over 1,000 railroad companies, the US had a pressing need for a common timetable. The Official Guide of the Railways started publication in 1868 and grew to its peak in the 1920s. It is still published but has evolved into a guide for freight shippers. The Guide encompassed all countries and territories in North America and included some great - though not always truthful - maps. The Guide at 1,500 pages is also an unusually complex book to navigate. We have written an article on how to read The Guide.

This fascinating timetable from Summer 1944 shows the results of Germany being fought on at least three land fronts - the east, France, and Italy. The Deutsche Reichbahn publishes this timetable to north-western Germany during a period of great uncertainty and diminishing land borders. German-occupied territory is treated as 'international' but services are increasingly sparse. Only a handful of trains now link Germany to Paris, and Italian services are shown as 'New timetable not received'.
