By very popular demand, they are back! It’s been a while since we’ve done a Express Coaches and Long Distance Bus Services guide, with a loose-leaf one under preparation for a while now! But, now that National Express have publicly allowed everyone access to their Coach Guide-style timetables, the project has taken renewed emphasis!

So, what do the books cover?
•   Express Coach Services
•   Rail Link Services
•   Long Distance Services
•   Airport and other Strategic Services (including some short connections where routes have been split or rationalised)
•   A few occasional routes that supplement the main network, like A14
… so we have a combined four volume set. This is bound permanently, not in an updatable ring binder this time round ! A little less information on Scotland is deliberate, as we’re looking at Passing Around Scotland covering this in more detail.

So, for now, this is an expanded version of our previous editions. Part 1 contains timetables and farecharts for National Express Services. Part 2 contains Megabus, Citylink, timetables, including those that Megabus sell through tickets to. Part 2, 3, 4 cover GreenLine, AirportBusExpress, EasyBus, New Bharat, Commonwealth Coaches, plus selected other bus and coach services. The latter are those where bus/train tickets, or bus/coach through tickets are offered, including those that appeared in the Other Operators part of NX Guide years ago. This section also includes those services that used to be part of the National Rail Timetable, largely those which connected airports or between lines. We also include other strategic services, as much as we can squeeze in!  If you’d like to find a list of services in each part, go to or drop us a line and we can post one to you!

In this guide, we have four books, see as follows;
Volume 1 (XC1) – National Express -
Volume 2 (XC2) – Megabus, Citylink, Other Services, 1 to 69 -
Volume 3 (XC3) – Other Services, 70 to Red Arrow -
Volume 4 (XC4) – Other Services, S1 to XL -

A4 parts – between 450 and 500 pages each. All include an Index to Places Served (covering all four volumes), while each part includes an Index to Services for the routes in that particular volume. Cover is 250micron laminated, and side bound.

Purchasing Options – a hard copy of each part, including UK postage/packing, will cost £45.00. Buy all four for £160.00 – saving £20.00 !

You can buy all four on CD or DVD for £40.00.

The books are in final stages of proofing, and will be sent out w/c 7th April 2018. We hope to have a few at the Enfield sale the previous Saturday.
