The Center for Railway Information Systems, CRIS has launched a new Mobile application to track railway schedule and running status of the train. The application will work on Windows 8 platform presently. Adaptability on other mobile platforms is being worked on.
The National Train Enquiry System, NTES, gathers the required data from various sources like telephonic, mobile interfaces, station based touch screens, enquiry counters and display boards of various stations.
The Train Schedule feature will give the departure, arrival information, stops between, distance and day count information. The Spot Your Train feature will give an almost exact spot of the train at the time of enquiry, expected time of arrival information. There is also Trains between stations info and cancelled trains info on the app. The only downside is that the app works only on the Windows 8 mobiles right now.
