When it comes to getting the real time information of any particular train, it was pretty difficult in the old times. In the past, people were used to wait for hours in the stations for their own trains or for receiving their friends or relatives. This was a very irritating thing, which people had to endure anyway. But with the automation of processes in Indian railways, these problems no more exist to haunt people. People no more go to the telephonic inquiry for their problems rather take the help of the website of Indian railways. There are live numbers with which the people still make telephonic inquiries. These numbers are 139 and 131. Through these numbers, it is possible to get the timetable of running trains. The position of the trains can also be known by calling on these numbers.
The different information, which one can get out of the train running status service is:
· Train time table
· Live running status of trains
· Late positioning of trains
· Location of these trains
· Train schedules
· Expected time of arrival and departure.
But at many points, it happens that people are not able to get through to these help lines, and they are in a hurry to know the information.
