When you check the train's running status on Trainman, you can quickly get additional information such as delays, platform number, and train between station details.
How Trainman Live Train Status Works?
In Indian railways, real-time tracking of GPS-enabled trains is referred to as train running status. Essentially, it provides information about the last reported location of the train, as well as the estimated arrival and departure times for the next upcoming railway stations on that train's route. This Spot your train feature also displays the platform number on which the train will arrive.
Train running status is fairly accurate and provides real-time status of the train with typical delays of up to 5 minutes. All Indian trains that operate under the Indian Railways Reservations system can have their live train status checked.

Offline Live Train Status Explained
Offline live train status indicates that no internet connection is required to obtain the live train status and estimated arrival time at the next station. The user's phone must be downloaded once with the timetable or route. Following that, if the user is on a train, he can find the exact location of the train as well as track the ETA in offline mode. Because railway tracks do not always have complete network coverage, this feature is extremely useful. As a result, we recommend that our users use the Trainman app for hassle-free travel.
Q. How does Trainman's Live Train Status updates differ from the traditional Indian railway model?
A. The Trainman app's running status updates on mobile are much more accurate because they are derived from the mobile GPS or cell tower of the devices shared by our users. The traditional Indian railway model for train running status is based on updates from the previous stop, which are delayed and subject to human error.
Q. What is the Indian railway's estimated time of arrival? How does Trainman determine ETA?
A. An ETA is a train's estimated time of arrival at upcoming stations. Trainman has the most accurate ETA prediction of any website or application. Trainman predicts the ETA using machine learning algorithms based on the train's historical running patterns. Trains, too, require rest time. As a result, the train delay at the next stoppages may be less than what was reported from the previous station.
