Schweers+Wall Eisenbahnatlas series
Published by Verlag Schweers + Wall GmbH, but their website address now links only to the Eisenbahn Kurier online shop Rail Atlases page.
These atlases, with keys in German English and other languages, show railways at 1:150 000 or 1:300.000 scale, with enlargements for most large towns and cities. Single and double-track lines, electrified and freight-only railways are distinguished. Passenger train operators other than those of the national company are noted next to lines that they use; privately-owned lines and leased lines, with the operator as well if different. The gauge of narrow-gauge lines is stated. Lines out of use and those entirely closed are also shown. Details can occasionally be confused in congested areas, particularly because parallel lines are used to show railways with more than two tracks. Built-up areas, motorways, rivers, canals and forests are depicted.
The following books have been or are available. Each link leads to ordering and other details on the Eisenbahn Kurier online shop. Some of these maps are also available from Platform 5 Publishing.
