Now you need not run here and there to make train enquiries and book your tickets. The railway station codes list
makes it all easier for you. It contains the codes of all the railway stations in India
. By giving the station code you get the station name and all other details regarding the station and trains that pass through them.
There are many old and new stations
in India some of which are included in the World Heritage Sites. The Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus is one of the oldest and the busiest railway stations in India and is included in the World Heritage site. The Howrah Railway Station in West Bengal is the oldest, second busiest and the largest railway station
in India. It is the headquarters of the South Eastern Railways. The Kharagpur Junction has the longest railway station in the world and the Sealdah Railway station is one of the busiest railway stations in India. They are in West Bengal. Chennai Central is also one of the oldest and busiest railway stations in India.
Usually railway station codes are represented alphabetically, especially the passenger
trains. But there are some railway stations in Indian Railways which have codes that are not alphabetical.
The railway station codes list is available online on the official website of Indian Railways
and also on the website of IRCTC. Other than that you can personally visit to the railway station to make enquiries, or contact the call centers, where the customer care executives
will help you in getting the station codes.
