To check the train running status, simply follow these steps mentioned below:
Let’s say, you are travelling from New Delhi to Mumbai by the Mumbai Rajdhani Express (NDLS – BCT). You simply have to type the train number, 12952. You could also type in the name of the train and the train number.
After you tap on the Check Status option, you will get information on if it has departed from the first junction, New Delhi Railway Station. The result will also inform you of the expected departure time. Suppose you are leaving on 26 th November, 2018, it will show when the Train Running Status was previously updated and when it will depart. In this case, the expected departure time of the Mumbai Rajdhani Express train is 16.25 hours.
With the Train Running Status, you can get detailed information from which platform the train would depart from and also, the distance of the different stations on the route from the point of origin. In this case, the Mumbai Rajdhani Express would depart from Platform number 3 in the New Delhi Railway Station.
If you want to know if the Mumbai Rajdhani Express has departed, you can open the app again and type in the train number. Once the train departs, the live train running status is updated after a few minutes. You will also know if the train is running on the scheduled time.
You will also be able to spot your train with this update. You will know at which station and at what time the train would reach next. In this case, the first station for the Mumbai Rajdhani Express train while going from New Delhi to Mumbai will be Kota Railway Junction. This station will show on the current update and will let you know the accurate time when the train will reach.
