"Offline" Rail Journey Planner for UK and Europe (with an English version too!)

Found this while looking for timetables on the DB website!

There are a number of modes, including one for English. This information can include internal services - I used the English version with the full option to check times of trains from WGC to SVG on Sunday, and the information (rail replacements) was correct and up to date.

Good test, Suzy. I use a similar approach for road atlases: do they show the detail of limited access junctions with which I an familiar?

In my case, I check the A14/M11 Girton interchange (M11 jn 14) the Madingley Road access to the M11 (jn 13) and the Fen Ditton/Horningsea junction with the A14.

I've only found one road atlas brand which meets the test: Geographers' A-Z.
