Thomas Cook Timetable Bites the Dust...

Jump to last reply

with the German company that owns the brand pulls the plug due to understandably falling sales not recouping printing costs, etc after 140 years of publishing it - well the Guardian article says that a new Eurail App has been downloaded 30,000 times - times change but the Thomas Cook did not - why did they not have a Thomas Cook app? Dinosaurs die eventually. But again a sad event for me and others.

Apparently some old Thomas Cook timetable hands want to buy and rescue this iconic timetable that many of us in Neanderthal days used to plan our train trips and chugged along to get schedules as we went.

I lament the demise of Cooks and have many lining my shelves gathering dust.

Uesd to be the first thing I would do in Europe would be to track down a Thomas Cook office to nab my current timetable.
