Running Status offers the fastest way to check the Live Train Status and spot your train for all Indian Railways Trains, On RunningStatus.IN you can get all the details train status live, platform number on which the train is arriving, expected time of arrival, expected time of departure, next upcoming station, current location of the train and all intermediate station information.
Which checking the Live Train Running Status for your Train you must select the date on which your Train is departed from its source station. For example: If your Train reaches to your station on the third day from the date it is departed from its source station, then you must select the date on which it was departed from its source station.
When a train Departs from its source stations it provide updates of its departure from source and all arriving and departing stations via GPS system which now every train is equiped with, because of which we get to know the details like the current train location, speed of the train, current delay of the train and other available information.
As when the train is about to arrive to a station the platform number is decided by the station master based on the previous arrival of the train and current traffic of trains on the station which were running late and arrived late at the stations and sometime its not updated in the railway system because of which we do not get to see the platform number while checking the live train running status. Also this is only applicable for major Junction stations as of now because the system to update the real time platform is not available to smaller stations.
