I heavily rely on the portal when I want to track the train timings. The website has undergone major changes in the recent times.

Some key information:

1. One can find the status of the current train running either by typing the train number or the destinations. *Remember* - If a train is running overnight, remember to select "yesterday" if the train started previous day.
2. There is a feature to check for any station, which are the trains come in the next 2 or 4 hours.
3. There is an interesting feature call which helps to track the train on Google Maps.
4. What I greatly miss is
the complete train timings schedule from source to destination which was earlier available. However, I noticed that this is available in the mobile edition.

Google Search 
However, the UI is not that intuitive. You learn this website by trial-and-error.  The link to RailRadar is not directly listed under TrainEnquiry.  However, you will find this listed in Google Search.
In addition to this, there is an interesting website called which gives some good stats about each train. We all know the trains run late. Do the authorities use these stats to improve the train performance?
