To make commuting more convenient for passengers, the railways have expanded the train running information facility to all trains.

Now, the passengers can get information about various trains by logging on to

Divisional railway manager, Ferozepur division, NC Goyal said besides the website, the passengers can also check the status of train by sending an SMS to 139.

"To avail the SMS facility, type "spot" along with the train number and send it to 139," Goyal added.

Earlier, the train information of only selected 36 trains, including Shatabdi, Rajdhani and Duronto, was available on website and through SMS to 9415139139. However, both the services were shut down recently after the agreement between the railways and IIT, Kanpur, for running the project came to an end.
