Three panel passenger map, 15 x 22.7 cm, printed in colours on card, corners a little rounded, slight dustiness to covers.

This map marks Beck’s return to designing passenger maps after a brief hiatus when they had been designed by Hans Schleger. He incorporates elegant but short-lived features from his 1939/1940 station map: 60 degree angles and interlinked rings to denote interchange stations. It had a relatively low print run (300,000) and as no further passenger maps were printed until 1943, meaning it stayed in circulation for longer than had been usual, it is one of the more difficult issues to find in good condition.
