With reference to question How to get live status of train in a website?, I would like to reopen it and rephrase it.
The title could be: How to get the live status of an Indian train?
There are 2 answers: 1. Official PNR enquiry website: http://www.indianrail.gov.in/enquiry/PNR/PnrEnquiry.html?locale=en. After entering your PNR, you can check live status, seating charts etc. 2. On Etrain.info private website where schedule and live running status (refreshed every few minutes) can be checked. Example: https://etrain.info/in?TRAIN=14258
In my last trip to India, I was asked several times by foreigners about it and I think it is a very useful piece of information when traveling in India on trains.
Though the question is about the API integration, the question behind it is still relevant to travelers.
