European Railway Atlas

Mike-Ball Hello, I'm Mike Ball and welcome to the website of the European Railway Atlas.

I began this project in the late 'eighties in the days before personal computers and the internet. At that time there was nothing to help enthusiasts make sense of the mysterious and confusing geography of Europe's dense railway network with all its track gauges, electrification systems, thousands of stations and hundreds of heritage lines.

That project has grown into three products ideal for the general enthusiast and traveller. The first is the European Railway Atlas (Tourist Edition). This hardback book includes 8,000 of the more important stations and is ideal for those who may not have a special interest in railways but want to travel Europe by train. The second is the European Railway Atlas (All-Europe Concise Edition) which shows all of Europe's railways in a single cardback volume and includes around 23,000 locations. This includes such things as electrification systems, gauges and heritage railways. Finally there is my Regional Series of fourteen books. These cover the whole of Europe at larger scales and show all stations.
