Timetable Archive - Update

For those interested, there have now been further updates to the archive which include a selection of timetables from Eurostar, First Hull Trains, London Midland, Greater Anglia, National Express East Anglia and Anglia Railways. The latter also has London Crosslink and Amsterdam Express timetables included where they were available.

I have also added a new US section which features Amtrak timetables as far back as 2003. I'm unsure what our friends over the pond use for scenario creation but if you know of anyone that could benefit then please let them know about the archive.
