Verg good map, if your interrailing, this is much better than the map you get with the ticket, many more stations are listed, although if your just staying in major cities/capitols you can prob make do with the interrail suypplied map.
Myself and my dad have been using this map as inspiration for a few years now. If you're not sure if a trip is possible, just have a look on here. It's far easier to plan a trip at first using this than trying to get an idea of things on the internet. It's also great for discovering new places you can stop off at en-route.
Dont leave home without this if you are even thinking of taking a train journey in Europe. Mine is now fairly tatty but still useful. Shows every single train line. No roads so you can really concentrate. Brings back great memories too.
This is a review of the 16th edition. So what do you get for your money?
The map is two-sided. On the main side is a map of Europe showing virtually all Europe's railways on a scale of 1:4,000,000. the coverage is from all of Portugal and Ireland in the west as far as (and just beyond) Moscow (Russia), Kharkov (Ukraine), and Ankara (Turkey) in the east; and from the northern tip of the Scottish mainland, Oslo (Norway), Helsinki (Finland), and St Petersburg (Russia) in the north to the southern tips of Sicily (Italy), and the Pelopennese (Greece) in the south. There is a separate inset for the rest of Scandinavia and Finland.
In addition, areas of high mountains are shaded and country borders are shown. The rail-lines themselves are broken down into high-speed links, main lines, secondary lines, lines under construction, lines where service is suspended, and rack railways. Scenic routes are marked in green, and frontier stations shown in a different colour from others. Other items are shown such as tourist railways.
On the second side is a more detailed map of the central European area at a scale of 1:1,500,000. This covers the tip of Kent (northwest corner) to Warsaw (northeast) to Belgrade (southeast) to Nimes (southwest).
It could do with some more colour, but this might detract from the detail, but for European train travel, this is a must-have.
