The delay or on-time information is calculated by the railways on the basis of the ETA at the upcoming station. For instance, if the train has reached point A, 30 minutes late then it would most probably reach point B 30 minutes late as well. However, in most long-distance journeys the trains can compensate for the delay. We advise all redRail users to check live train status when they are to travel.
When the user comes to the “Where is my train” page we ask the user to select if they are “Inside the train” Or “Outside the train”, and provide the accurate train running status accordingly.
