I'm to system timetables as "The Jerk" was to the new phone books! :lol: Getting lost in a system timetable is the next best thing to being on the train. Thank you immensely for this wonderful gift that you have presented the community. I will have many hours to immerse myself between rail trips! You guys are great! :)

Anthony: Would you be interested in a site such as this one ? : Streamliner Schedules it's run by a guy named E. H. Bowen.

This is a wonderful resource, and beautifully executed. It is a rare pleasure to be able to view in full resolution. Thank you very much.

Thank you also for the nicely conceived and well run AmtrakUnlimited website.

Is anyone aware of online editions of Railway Guides for those of us who need pre-Amtrak schedule data?

Thanks for the compliments.

Try eBay for Official Railway guides, both printed and on DVD. That site usually has lots of them for sale.

Can anyone suggest a place to buy old Amtrak timetables on line? Or, for that matter, pre-Amtrak timetables? Thanks in advance!

eBay



Thanks... I imagine that that would work well if you were looking for a specific timetable, or even topic (such as, "Pennsylvania Railroad"). I'd be interested in a place that had a catalogue of different things for sale, since I am working on a collection. But I'll try ebay, and see what I can find....

There are some timetable dealers out there who issue catalogs. The first one that comes to mind (since I've been seeing his ads in railroad publications for decades) is Carl Loucks -- no website, but you can call him at 203-288-3765 to have a catalog sent to you.

I believe my collection (not catalogued) has some items not in your archive.   Do you want them either the treeware or scans?  I want to empty the shelf space.  
Thank you
