Belgium’s railway utility, the SNCB, on Tuesday launched an online map on which the movements of trains can be monitored in real time. The new tool, dubbed “Train Map” can be accessed by computer or smart phone using a link on the SNCB’s website.
It features a map of Belgium, where each moving train can be seen, with the possibility of obtaining a detailed overview of its planned itinerary and its “expected” arrival times, taking any delays into account as they arise.
“Travellers can locate their trains at any time and consult the information relevant to them,” notes the SNCB, which recalls that informing customers is among its priorities.
“Train Map enables the traveller to zoom in on a specific route and show the train’s itinerary with regard to recognizable points such as roads or highways,” the railway utility said. “Travellers can search by itinerary, type of train, station or train number.”
Train Map will be constantly updated with new sources of information (geolocalisation etc.).
