You can now check current location of Indian trains on Google Maps. You only need to type the train name or number to check location of the Train and type the station name to know what trains are there on that station.
Indian Railways has launched this wonderful service/web app known as RailRadar. RailRadar uses Google maps to show the current location of any train and also tells you about the timings of the train i.e. whether it is late or on time.
To get started all you need is to visit the RailRadar website. When you open the website you will see a map as shown below.
Here the Blue Dot like figures are Trains which are on Time and those with Red Dot like figures are Trains which are delayed.
How to Check Current Location of Indian Trains
Now to get started you can zoom-in to any location /city on the map to see all the trains which are arriving at the station or have just departed. Or you can use expand the left sidebar to search trains by name, by train number or by the station name.
Now if you click you on any train the map will show you the exact position of the train and will also tell you that what was the previous stop of the train and the next stop where it will halt. And it will also tell you if the train is on time or if it is delayed and if delayed than by how much. See the picture below for to know how it will look like.
The press release says that the train data is refreshed every 5 minutes and the displayed location and running status of any trains displayed on the Google will always be delayed by at least 5 minutes.
So this site is extremely useful for all Indian Rail Commuters to find current location of Indian trains. This will work on mobile phones also.
