The best and easiest way to travel from one place to another is by boarding a train. This is a manually
operated system and is known to be one of the most efficient in the whole world. In fact, Indian Railway is
known to manage one of the largest networks of railway that is right now being operated in the entire
continent. You can imagine well how many train runs across the country through the vast network of
IRCTC. This means it is really difficult to keep a track of each and every train. So, before you plan for a
journey, you initially need to go through two most crucial steps- finding out the correct train for you and
booking the tickets.
As there are huge numbers of trains running each day, so locating the best train suitable for your selected
location is a daunting task. To make your task easy, IRCTC has brought about a train time table with
details of each and every train running across this network. You can either use this time table online to
find trains or you can also buy it, as the same is published each year with updated information.
Checking train time and PNR
Now think that you have searched for the correct train and have booked a ticket for travelling to your
desired location. Now what if your ticket is not confirmed? If the same is not confirmed either it will show
waiting list or RAC (Reservation Against Cancellation). Now if you want to cancel your journey and book a
new confirmed ticket in some other train that is the safest option. However, if no other trains are
available travelling to your desired location on the desired day, there is no other option other than
waiting for your ticket to get confirmed and check pnr status online. In order to check pnr status and
train time you need to visit the IRCTC website. As an alternative you can also check pnr status by call.
Step by step way to check time table
Once you visit the IRCTC website for checking train time table, you will find a box and space provided to
search train times. This is the same website that you visit to check pnr status online. It is also at this site
that you will check pnr status and print ticket.
In this box you will find date field, the source of your journey and the destination field. Once you click on
the date field it will open the calendar and from here you can choose the date of your journey. In the
source field, you need to enter the source location of your journey and in the destination field you need to
enter the name of the station where you wish to travel. Once all these information is entered properly,
you need to hit the ‘Go’ button in the next step.
Once you hit the ‘Go’ button you will be redirected to a page containing a detailed list of trains between
the source and the destination stations that you have entered for the particular date. The list that opens
up will have all details about trains like train number, name, time of departure and arrival and the days of
the week those trains are available. Hence, it can be said that you have an easy way to check pnr status
and train time.
