Know current status of any Train Arrival Time at any station by SMS

February 27, 2010

If you want to know the current expected time of arrival or departure of any Indian Train at any station in India, you can know this by sending SMS to 139 following message -

< AD Train-Number STD-Code >

Suppose you are in Delhi (STD code 011), and before going to railway station you want to know the current status of expected time of arrival of train (suppose) Paschim Express (train number- 2926). To know this through your mobile, just send SMS-

AD 2926 011 to 139.

There are many time in which you will not be able to call Indian railway station enquiry counter  to know the current expected time of Arrival or Departure of any train. Many time you may not know the contact number of station enquiry counter.

If you know the status of train (expected arrival or departure time) at your desired station, you can save a lot of your time, as most of the train arrive station with lot of delay.

    Dear Sir/ Madam,
    we travelled by Indian Trains in January and it all went very well until our
    train from Itarsi to Mumbai on the 28th was 8 hours 15 minutes late. The
    consequence of this was that we missed our departure flight and had to
    purchase additional tickets to fly home to the UK. The problem is that our
    Insurance Company needs proof that our train was actually late in order to
    reimburse us our significant extra expenditure. If we give you details of
    the train can you confirm or advise us who can.
    The details of the delayed train are as follows :-
    Itarsi to Mumbai(Lokmanyatilak
    Train No/Name 3201/RJB CLA EXP
    Date of Journey 28/01/10
    Boarding ITARSI JN(ET) @20:45 arriving Mumbai 29/01/10 @11:30
    Request No RBR7617972
    Transaction ID 00176884269
    PNR 6434821695
    I do hope you will be able to help us or at least advise us who can.To this
    end I look forward to your response.
    Thanking you
    Yours Faithfully
