European Rail Timetable

Lots of people who head to Europe start out by studying some guidebook, whether it be Rick Steves or The Lonely Planet. You have decided that besides seeing some major cities you also want to get to some smaller towns, perhaps to see a museum. And then you wonder how you are going to get there.

You'll find the answer in "European Rail Timetable" by Thomas Cook. In it you will find information on both international and local trains for 40 countries. The book also has a map for each route so you can see if the village you want to visit is on a specific route.

It includes information on whether or not the train has first class or only second class and if it runs on only certain days of the week. And you'll also find a list of scenic rail routes.

Printed on newsprint, it is lightweight and easy to carry. The summer 2010 edition is now out and is available through Amazon.
