Sorry if this is a late post for the subject, and this has been mentioned before.

Is there a difference between the normal version and the WH Smith's version? Apart from the yellow cover.

Are you confusing the Terry Pratchett one, with the original 1863 one Bradshaw's Handbook (Old House Facsimile edition)
By: George Bradshaw (author) :?:

Could be the case. The bright yellow of the cover did blind me slightly :D

WH Smith have a yellow edition (collectors) as well as the standard Red covered version. Oh and they are both the same inside. It's just the cover. One day I will work out how to display pictures that fit the screen :doh:

Somehow, the normal version looks more authentic. :think:

I agree. The red one looks more in keeping with an old railway guide.

I have bought both :)

But I agree, somehow the red one looks more like a ledger from a dusty old office, that has been well thumbed. No idea why yellow was chosen by WH Smith, anyone think of a reason?

No idea, the 'standard edition' actually looks like a Bradshaw, the Smiths 'collectors edition' is more like Wisden :roll:

One of those? Oh I'm sure I have one somewhere..

I agree. I prefer the red cover.
