What an excellent book. It harks back to a golden age and is detailed with adverts for products some of which are still with us like Enos and Collis Brown's medecine. The adverts for the hotels are very evocative and the timetables transport you (sorry for the pun) to a different era. Hours of endless amusement in front of me. The surprise bonus are the pull out maps.

I was so jealous when Michael Portillo had this and I didn't. But now I have and I love it. So much fun. But, unless you have excellent eyesight, buy a magnifying glass too!

This book is the facsimile of the book Michael Portillo uses in his latest (2012) railway television series. If you liked that and we're intrigued by the original 1913 book he carries everywhere you will be delighted with this very thick book. Twice as thick as a phone book and nicely printed the good quality is also enhanced by the fold-out coloured maps and also the large separate coloured map in a clever pocket inside the front cover. This takes you right into 1913 Europe just before the First World War changed everything. For £16 this is very reasonable, treat yourself!
Also Amazon's delivery was like lightning.

This hefty tome, as austere and daunting as it looks, has to rank as one of the most outstanding works in the history of railway literature, here is something no well heeled traveller, in the death throes of genteel Edwardian England, could afford to be without, over the course of its 1106 pages, the traveller has everything at their fingertips they would ever need, a comprehensive guide of direct routes to the principle cities, railway timetable of each country of europe, a hotel directory, general advice to travellers, almanac & tide table, information on money, weights & measures, a short descriptive guide to each country and its principle cities and much much more, this is in my opinion another five star hit for old house who have given us an invaluable treasure, a snapshot of a bustling but genteel Europe who could have no idea of the horror that was waiting to unfold

Having watched the outstanding new series on BBC TV, I have decided to take myself to Switzerland. This volume is very large, but outstanding. However there is a Kindle version for a fraction of the price (you don't need an actual Kindle - a tablet with app will do fine). Go for it!

Exactly what I expected. I have been able to follow the BBC HD programme using this book. Very detailed journies

I chose this book for my father, who is a keen railway fan and is planning a rail trip to Italy next year. Although the book is rather thick and heavy he tells me that it will be traveling with him (I guess that's one of the pleasures of rail travel - no weight restrictions!) and we have already amused ourselves by reading the guide to the cities he'll be visiting. He also plans to read the timetables within it and compare the journey times, stops etc to his own journey. It's a hit.
