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. We show you the train operating company on the train’s timetable page. Freight services will also show their operator, whilst some may only show operator once activated.

Rail Record Email SMS Alerts Page

Rail Record offers a free members area. The Rail Record members area enables you to get email / sms* alerts about train services, add information about train allocations and sightings, and share information about lineside locations and stations. Email alerts are free, whilst SMS alerts require purchasable SMS credits.

Receive alerts about the following service statuses:

Cancellation – Get notified about service cancellation, with an option to also get notified if the cancellation is overturned (reinstated).

Activation – Email / SMS alert when the train schedule is activated in the railway computer systems

Reaches Location – Get notified when a train reaches a given location, pick-able from a drop-down list, so you don’t need to keep refreshing the page.

First Movement – Receive a notification when a train service departs its point of origin. This is triggered when the train makes its first movement report.

ID Change – Get notified if a train’s ID changes, EG from 6V00 to 0V00, indicating that the service is now running without a load.

Origin Change – Receive a notification if a train’s origin changes.

We also plan to bring more alert features in the coming months. In addition to receiving alerts, you can make contributions to the website, such as adding images to station and locomotive about pages, update locomotive information, and tick trains and stations off / mark as visited / copped / bashed.

Alerts can be set at the bottom of a live train times schedule. You’ll be required to login / create a free account to get email/sms alerts. Train information can be seen / updated by clicking on the locomotive number at the bottom of a schedule, provided an allocation has been added.
