I have yet to do anything about this as I see it says 2000 to date, whereas the Smith catalogue was published in 1990. this appear to leave a ten [or more] year gap?

The three books published by Kenneth E. Smith (1922-2000) are as follows.

1.  Kenneth E. Smith, Catalogue of world transportation tokens and passes except North America, first edition 1967, Redondo Beach, California. Eleven sections cover passes, transportation tokens, bridge tokens and passes, ship cabin checks, gate tokens and passes, road tokens and passes, amusement park ride tokens, pier passes, ship money, miscellaneous and unidentified tokens and passes. A twelfth section includes transportation words with their English equivalents.

2.  Kenneth E. Smith and Kirk S. Smith, Catalogue of world ferry, ship, and canal transportation tokens and passes, first edition 1981, Redondo Beach, California. This is an updated catalogue of the ferry tokens from the 1967 catalogue.

3.  Kenneh E. Smith and Kirk S. Smith, Catalogue of world horsecar, horseomnibus, streetcar, and bus transportation tokens except North America, first edition 1990, Redondo Beach, California. This is an updated catalogue of land transport tokens from the 1967 catalogue.

After 1990 periodic reports of newly discovered tokens were published in The Fare Box. In January 2004 Bill Weber published a loose-leaf "First Annual Listing of Fare Box Supplements from 1980 thru 2003".

In 2012 I published an online catalogue of bridge, road and city gate tokens of the world except North America.

The next supplement was the one of 2013 described in the first post above.

I don't have the catalogue in front of me, but I remember the Wiener Westbahn-Tokens for example. Austria is not large, but has many trams and small mountain railways.

I have the Vienna in 1938 WStB token. Other than that I have a few modern car wash and parking. I get any  Austrian token I can.
