Latest available Timetable information and 'Stop Press' [Updated 28 November 2016]
Quail China Railway Atlas
A Little History
[NEW] I am preparing an eleventh edition of the Full Timetable, but this will not be completed for some time. I plan that, like the seventh edition, it will be freely available under a Creative Commons licence. An interim edition, containing tables for about 40% of the high speed network (but none of the conventional network) is now available - see The Timetable for more information.
I have copies of the Quail China Railway Atlas available for sale. For price and ordering information please see Quail China Railway Atlas.
[AMENDED] Where am I? - I am travelling in Europe until 17 April, then via Thailand and Malaysia to Japan, where I will be travelling from 3 to 31 May - then back again via Malaysia and Thailand to Melbourne, Australia arriving 14 June. Please contact me if I am/will be in your part of the world and you would be interested in meeting.
