This is a good atlas. Things I like are that there is plenty of overlap between the pages, so that it is possible to follow the map more easily than some others. The map could usefully have more distinction between lines open for passengers and those which are freight only. In Italy (in particular) the map has not kept pace with service suspensions and closures, and I have spotted a few errors. However, for the task it sets out to do it is very much better than anything which has gone before it.

I bought this atlas after a holiday in Sweden which left me realising that about half the lines I'd travelled on hadn't been built when my 20-year-old Ian Allan pocket European railway atlas was printed! If anything the title is an understatement- the atlas includes Norway, Switzerland and the ex-Yugoslav countries not in the EU- as well as articles (in German only) on various items about the modern European railway. There are a few errors of detail (no electrification in Ireland, eh?) but given the scope of the book this is understandable. As a large format hardback, it's probably not something to take on an Inter-Railing holiday, but would be ideal for planning a train-based holiday in Europe and also for reference if you read the European sections of railway magazines to understand where things are happening. You certainly don't need more than a passing acquaintance with German to get a lot out of this atlas and there are enough translation sites online to help with the (fairly short) articles which make up the first section of the book. Highly recommended and certainly more than meets the eye.

Not up to Schweers + Wall's usual standard. The scale just isn't big enough to show any kind of detail, and there are far too many errors.

For a general overview of European railways this Atlas is excellent. My knowledge of European railway routes is very much in its infancy, whereas the routes of the UK and Ireland are far more familiar. I have spotted a couple of minor errors regarding our own network, as a result one may assume the odd inaccuracy may possibly occur at locations that are less familiar. That small point aside, I feel this is a fine offering, portraying the rail routes of our closest neighbours. I like it a lot. Recommended!

useful high level railway atlas of Europe, to complement their much more detailed publications for several countries. Good - enjoy

The maps are very clear, but , it would be good if there were captions in English as well. The main text could be translated on a leaflet as not to spoil the page layout. This is a very good Atlas.
