Current Timetables

Particularly useful for modern day scenarios, simply pick the area in which you are creating your scenario and you can easily put together the relevant traffic. Here are three but there are more available that do a similar job.

Network Rail also publish the Working Timetable.

The most efficient way to scans of famous Mr. Bradshaw, "inventor of time table collections" in a way.

Most are traveller's handbooks but these two not:
Great Britain and Ireland, 1846
The Continent, 1888 (warning: 2 GB)

Amazon carries both a reprint of the UK and Continental books from other years. They are really fat, I got the latter.

If like me you like collecting Historic Public and WTTs then this site I find particularly useful http://britishrailwaybooks.co.uk/wtt/wtt.php ,another option is "fleabay" or gala days at Preserved lines where you normaly find a loco society selling off old timetables etc.
