Well I just picked up the books today, didn't get all the ones for my collection that I 'require'
, but I got at least 1 of each.
Got home just now, and had a good look through them (like I do with all new networks, have a little study, see what's changed), and if anything, the outside colouring, and designs are much better, and it is really good to have region books instead of one massive unnecessary book.
Quite a few more details have been put into the detail of some of the routes I've noticed as well, which is quite an improvement, and one thing I did notice as I was going through them was the colour used on the routes themselves for each route page. They've gone back with the dark/light blue lines, haven't seen that since the Network '98 timetables. Nice to have a change from all that orange and green.
The formatting of the placement of the numbers is a bit odd, but other than that, I like them this time!
1 thing though I did think was unnecessary, the use of the 200 (Red Rapid) on all the region books, it's not like the Tuggeranong/Belconnen books really
need the 200 (in my opinion).
Also another strange thing is the start of the network. From my memory, I'm pretty sure they've always started the new network on a weekday, and then had the following weekend (if there was a changed weekend network) after, so it will be strange (to me) for the new network to be starting on the weekend before the weekday.
