Rail Record is an online train timetables and train schedules website. We have information on nearly every train service in England, Scotland and Wales to help you get from A to B.

The Rail Record website is mobile optimised, which makes it easy to browse train services on all devices little and large.

Live Service Updates

Rail Record gives live train times and live train service updates. Rail Record provides realtime live train timetable data for 99% of train services, as well as VSTP train information.

Nice and Fast

Rail Record live train times website has been designed with mobile users in mind. Good both on mobile and desktop, Rail Record has small page sizes, and optimised backend database and power to improve performance for all users (subject to your data speed)

Comprehensive Information

Rail Record gives detailed information on trains on the UK (exc Ireland) rail network, with all the required information. A quick search will list all train services at a station, whilst clicking the chevron will expand the train service details showing calling points, performance and service details including headcode (if available) and operator.

Search Live Train Times

Search live train times with Rail Record. Using our easy to use train times website, getting from A to B has never been easier.

Live train times for most UK stations

Rail Record has live train times for most stations in England, Scotland and Wales.

Easy to read train times layout

It is clear what trains call at what station. Stations where a train stops are annotated with a stop watch icon. The train schedule table rows are set in alternating colours so its easy to follow.

Find connecting train services with ease

If you need to catch multiple trains, you can tap on a station on the train schedule page to take you to a list of services at that station, around the same time that your train gets in to that station.

Detailed service information

We show detailed train service information such as the train operator (useful if your train ticket excludes you from travelling on certain services) and whether it has been cancelled.

Typical train type analysis

(Coming Soon 2019) We’ll provide an option for people to add information about train services, such as short formations, unusual workings etc (free account required). This will also enable trainspotters to add train allocations and “gen” that they’ve seen working for services.

Email alert updates

(Coming Soon 2019) In addition to the above free user account, we plan for you to be able to get notified about service updates such as when a train gets to a certain location, or if its cancelled or altered.

Historical train times

We’ll aim to keep a history of train schedules for around a year after they ran (subject to database storage allowance).

Latest VSTP Services

VSTP services are Very Short Term Planned train services. These services usually run within 24 hours of the schedule going live. You can view a list of recently created VSTP schedules below. This is a summary of the most recent 10 VSTP paths. If you want a longer list of all VSTP schedules, visit the VSTP Schedules page from the enthusiast resources menu (still in development).

If you’re using a small device, make sure its in landscape mode to see all of the columns. Headcode column will be hidden on devices with very small width.
