European Rail Timetable Rises from the Dust

The former Thomas Cook Rail Timetable has been reborn. Here is news from yesterday's WSJ

Bahn.de has a perfectly good rail schedule for all of europe (except very small local trains such as the one from Naples to the Amalfi Coast) and can be accessed in all languages.

I can't see buying it when you can get the app from DB. Thomas Cook hasn't kept up with technology.

Who cares about Cook's Timetable. For something worthwhile, get a copy of Bradshaw's Continental Railway Guide and read it as you travel to compare then and now. Far more than just a timetable.

A TV series where Michael Portillo did just that. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OMN0roxppsU
