  • Current Station indicates the station based on which the current live train running status is resolved. It also shows that the train has either arrived at or departed from the station.
  • Estimated Time of Arrival (ETA) shows the expected time at which the train is supposed to arrive at station.
  • Current or last reported station can be either a stoppage or an intermediate station (where the train does not have a regular stoppage and is expected to cross the station)
  • Trains do recover time, so the train delay at the upcoming stoppages may be less than what has been reported from last reported station. Please plan accordingly
