Live Train Running Status

Train Live Running Status

Railrestro Services

Indian Railways through its digital services allow the passengers to check the live train running status online helping them to get details on the exact location of trains along with their estimated arrival time. The main component used to check this functionality is:

Train Number and Name: Every train has a specific number.  It’s the relevant five-digit number which is required to check the train status during any time of the journey. Eg. If you’re traveling to New Delhi via Patna Rajdhani Express, the train number is “12309” and the same number will be used for checking the train running status.

Steps to Check the Train running status Online

  • Enter your Train Number:  The interface offers a search box where the passenger can enter the train number on which the journey is scheduled.
  • Hit the Check Schedule button: After you enter the train number, the interface suggests you the exact train which has to be selected. Click the “Check Schedule” button and you will get the exact status of your train.    

Elements Displayed while Checking the Live Status:
Once you hit the “Check Schedule” button, the webpage will redirect you to the results which will contain:

  • A vertical table of the stations en route: The interface will list out the total number of stations, date of Journey (DOJ), the exact timings, arrival/departure time, and the current status of the train i.e., its departure on right time (highlighted in green color) or any delay (highlighted in red color).
  • Current departure/Halt Status:  The tabular data will highlight the station with a blue dot blinking on the left side of the station name. This shows that the train has departed from the station.
  • Options to Check the Status for Three Days: Though the interface shows you the current status of train, of that date, it also gives you the option to check the status of the next day and the previous day.
