Is there a real map out there with railway lines ?

Hello

I’m super frustrated with the planning process for my trip to Scotland :-/

Among other frustrating things about interrail, there is no map available, neither on the website nor on the app (I know there is a map of your trips but only after booking your trip - so not helpful at all). The map on the interrail-website is a road map only, which is a bad joke :-/

I tried open railway map, which is helpful if you have a computer or notebook, but it is hard to see where stations are (or not).

I also tried the printed/pdf map but again this is not detailed enough

Any help for a good map to use would be highly appreciated.

Here are some maps of rail routes in Scotland: https://www.scotrail.co.uk/plan-your-journey/our-routes

Guess your best bet is indeed go for a combo of OpenRailway map and local rail maps.

Some options:

Belgium: https://cdn.belgiantrain.be/-/media/images/travel-info/leaflets/network-map-large.ashx?la=nl&hash=9BD97174E1A354B26D692D8F28CCABE1E5FA1149 or digital: https://trainmap.belgiantrain.be/

Netherlands: https://www.ns.nl/binaries/_ht_1604421377494/content/assets/ns-nl/dienstregeling/nieuwe-dienstregeling/spoorkaart-2021.pdf

France: https://www.sncf-reseau.com/sites/default/files/2020-06/CARTE%20RFN%202020_WEB_0.pdf

Switzerland: https://maps.trafimage.ch/ch.sbb.netzkarte?baselayers=ch.sbb.netzkarte,ch.sbb.netzkarte.dark,ch.sbb.netzkarte.luftbild.group,ch.sbb.netzkarte.landeskarte,ch.sbb.netzkarte.landeskarte.grau&lang=de&layers=&x=951333.93&y=5910491.7&z=8.33

@Steve Weber Actually, the Swiss Railways nail it again: 😎

The online map I just sent is very detailed, and encompasses almost all of Europe.

Although the features only work in Switzerland but all other passenger rail maps seem to be correct.
