The current status of your ticket can also be obtained from the Indian Railways Passenger Information Website: This site also provides real-time information relating to availability of seats (and berths in a train even between a pair of stations), timetable and train fares etc. For general information on Indian Railways, passengers can access the Indian Railways website : www.indianrailways. .

After getting connected to "139", the information with regard to arrival/departure of a train at a particular station can be obtained by dialing the train no. and STD code of that station.
