Working Timetables.

We built up a large collection of working timetables, however, someone who should have known better had them all burnt; in fact two skip-loads of archive railway paper records were destroyed this way, and this despite representations that it shouldn't be done from the two men who were tasked to do the deed.

I have always had tremendous enjoyment out of reading old timetables, both public & working, and on hearing what had happened, four of my late father's pals gave me their entire collections. So what follows in this section (mostly GWR/WR WTTs covering between 1910 and 1964) is solely due to the generosity of Dennis Bath (Stafford), Dr Brian Rogers (Worcester), Alan Maund (Worcester) and David Evans (Ledbury) - of whom the first three have now passed on themselves.

Click on the links below, then the link for the timetable you would like to examine, and then the attached document box on the RHS of the page concerned. If you can, and in particular with section A), it is best to read the PDFs in a two page side-by-side view, as this is how the originals are laid out.

Some of the timetables in section A) are physically large and thick, these proved quite difficult to scan as they wouldn't bend easily, as a result some of the scans don't include all the information on the pages concerned.
