    almost completely useless

    No index. A travel guide with no index! No information about actual train routes, what to see from the train, scenic trips etc. Merely a few random train schedules and then brief information about a relatively few cities in the UK - but one would still need a Fodor's or Frommer's or similar guide for more detailed information. British rail website has free detailed guide to routes, indicating most scenice, things to see along the way, etc.
