Indian Railways conducts around 11,000 trains everyday in different routes across the country and is the fourth largest rail network in the world. Sometimes you might have faced a great inconvenience when you went to station to catch your train and you came to know that your train is running late or has been delayed for some hour due to certain reasons. This inconvenience is common in winter especially in north India when the visibility drops down due to fog and it is hard to see beyond certain distance. There may be also various reasons which force the train to become late.
However now before going to station, you can track and know your train’s running status whether it is on schedule or delayed. The Indian Railway has launched a website TrainEnquiry.com especially for tracking the running status of any train. In the homepage, you have to either enter the train number or the train name (if you don’t know the train number) and when you press Enter, it quickly gives the description of running status of your train.
How to know where exactly the train is?
This existing website doesn’t give the information about the exact location of your train. However Indian Railways is in the process of developing a website that will not only give you running status of your train but also will tell you where exactly the train is. The new website is more lucrative and useful than the existing one.
Once you find your train in search results, you can know the departure time of your train in the previous two stations and also you’ll be able to know the distance of the next two stoppages on the route with the expected arrival time at these stations.
This website is expected to come in existence in the next few days but if you want to try it navigate to Train Enquiry Search Train Page and select the new look option. This website is not mobile-friendly but you can still get the details on your mobile.
