Until not-so-may years ago, you could buy a great printed tome of all the national rail services - a giant timetable that frightened the newcomer and was endless hours of interest for the initiated.  That succumbed as a national printed production (Middleton Press took it on - not sure if that's still going) but it remains online.    I'm noting that here because it's a bit of a hidden gem.

For the timetable starting this Sunday, the site states:

May 2020 NRT update

The published version of the May 2020 NRT will be available on Friday 15 May 2020.

The delay in publishing the live version is due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation, and our capacity to make appropriate amendments before the timetable goes live.

We apologise for any inconvenience this may have caused.

Please rest assured we are directing as much resource and spare capacity as we can under the current climate to ensure a quality output from the NRT.

Please note that during the development of the May 2020 NRT we have started to introduce new information and review processes, including the introduction of table maps and welcome your feedback ahead of the December iteration. These maps will be available in the Map Index folder on this page and also in each individual table PDF.

Thank you for your patience and understanding in this matter.

We mirror all this timetable on the Coffee Shop.   If you visit our station comparator - I took Radley as an example ( ) - you'll usually find a link to the various tables associated with that station. In this case it's table 116 - London Paddington to Bedwyn and Birmingham. - . Replace the "116" with the table number you want, leading zero fill ... so for table 44 Saltburn and Middlesbrough - Darlington, Bishop Auckland, Sunderland and Newcastle for example.
