This was joined by their Catalogue of World Horsecar, Horseomnibus, Streetcar, and bus Transportation Tokens. issued 1990.

They wrote me that they were compiling a third catalogue covering the railway tokens - I don't know if this is published? The three volumes designed to replace their 1967 volume of world transportation tokens.

Kenneth E. Smith died 29 March 2001 before producing the book on railway tokens. Likewise, bridge tokens were not covered after the original 1967 work. His son, Kirk S. Smith is not active in cataloging tokens.

Thank you, that is sad  news.

Disappointing that the third volume will not appear.

In January 2004 "A Committee of Vecturists" produced the First Annual Listing of Fare Box Supplements to the Catalogue of World Transportation Tokens & Passes except North America. There has not been a follow-up. However, progress is being made and a new update will hopefully be published next year.

By the way, there is an online catalogue of over nine thousand amusement ride tokens, mostly Germany and mostly plastic.
