World Rail Atlas series

by Neil Robinson.

  • World Rail Atlas Vol. 7 North, East and Central Africa - ISBN 978-954-92184-3-5, First Edition, published December 2009.
  • World Rail Atlas Vol. 8 The Middle East and Caucasus - ISBN: 978-954-12-0128-2, First Edition, published August 2006.

As far as the compilers know, only these volumes and editions were ever published. It is very likely that they are now out of print, but copies may be available second-hand.

Other intended volumes in the series include:

  • Vol. 6 South and West Africa (the index map in Vol. 7 includes this area, with countries and railways shown appropriately)
