Maybe not much more than pics for those of you who don't speak a Scandinavian language, but this guy has over 30000 timetables. But he doesn't like to fly.

Cool pics though. The caption for the 1938 German version of a Sabena timetable says that the woman originally had dark hair, but for the German market it was changed to a lighter color.

EDIT: Here is the man'n own homepage: http://www.timetableimages.com/

I don't know if he is, but I know folks who know and have met him.

Here in the US is a collector named David Keller who is a regular at all of the aviation collectibles shows. I saw him up in Atlanta earlier this month. He travels with several thousand timetables just for sale. I believe his personal collection is well in excess of 45,000.

I'm no timetable collector but thats is one extremely comprehensive site.

I wouldn't be surprised if this guy lurks around A.Net's Aviation Hobby Forum.
Its better to be on the ground wishing you were in the air than be in the air wishing you were on the ground. Fly safe!
