4.0 out of 5 stars Good book but same mistakes every year
This is a very good book published to a very high standard on top quality paper. However, every year, the same mistakes seem to appear. Yet again it misses out nearly 20 class 60 locomotives that DBS still own and also a large number of Class 150 that FGW operate have been omitted for the 3rd year running.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good in parts
This has all the information needed to keep up with the changes year on year but it is difficult to append changes obtained week to week from the web should one wish to. The paper on which it is printed does not lend itself to the use of most gel type pens, or even old fashioned biros, as the ink takes forever to dry.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good book but same mistakes every year, 4 May 2012

This review is from: abc Rail Guide 2012 (Hardcover)
This is a very good book published to a very high standard on top quality paper. However, every year, the same mistakes seem to appear. Yet again it misses out nearly 20 class 60 locomotives that DBS still own and also a large number of Class 150 that FGW operate have been omitted for the 3rd year running.
There are also a few omissions in the list of stations with the new stations opened during 2011 not included (Buckshaw Village is one example)
While it is accepted that these books can never be 100% accurate due to the dynamic nature of its content, these are things that the publishers should be rectifying for future editions by proper reseacrh and taking action on feedback received.
Come on Ian Allan/Colin Marsden - please make an effort for the 2013 edition to correct these errors.

This has all the information needed to keep up with the changes year on year but it is difficult to append changes obtained week to week from the web should one wish to. The paper on which it is printed does not lend itself to the use of most gel type pens, or even old fashioned biros, as the ink takes forever to dry. And why does Abellio Greater Anglia come in between Merseyrail and Northern Rail in an otherwise alphabetically arranged order?
These misgivings apart the maps are good as are most of the photos and there is a comprehensive list of all the bewildering livery, pool, site, depot, operator and owner codes so much in vogue these days.
