The Northern Railway has launched a real-time train information SMS service.
The service aims at providing relief to passengers during foggy days when trains run hours behind schedule.
Through this service, passengers can get the information regarding their train by sending an SMS mentioning the train number to 9717631813. There will be no charges for this service.
The Railways will be launching two more simple to remember SMS numbers on the 1st of January.
The Northern Railway has designed automated software to disseminate real time-train information through this SMS service.
