To enquire the trains running between two stations you need to enter the names of the two stations from the drop down list box. This will give you a list of all the trains running between the two mentioned stations along with the class of travel, arrival and departure time, days in which the trains run, and so on. After selecting the train of your choice you can check the seat availability and fares of tickets and book your ticket. If the name of the station is not available in the drop down box, you have to get the Railway Station Codes
of the two stations and then check the train availability.
With more than 7500 railway stations, knowing the station code is of great help, especially for the frequent travelers and businesspeople. This makes reservation of tickets easy for them, without wasting much time. On the website of Indian Railways you will find a link called Railway
Station Code Finder. Click on it and type the zone, division and name of the station, and you will get the station code.
It is possible to get Railway Station Codes online on the official website of the Indian Railways and also on the website of IRCTC
. Other than that you can directly go to the railway station to make enquiries, or contact the call centers. You also have the option to check railway station codes on your mobile phone by accessing the website in your mobile or by sending SMS to the number 139.
