Welcome to NexTrain

Your source for live UK train status updates

NexTrain brings the station display board right to you, minute by minute, using the same train updates that power the display boards themselves - National Rail Enquiries. 

Have you ever stood at the end of a platform, wondering whether your train might be late, not being able to see the display board? Left your glasses at home and can't read the screens? Ever been in a crowded station standing by the gates for platform 3 to get your favourite seat, knowing your train normally leaves from there but you can't see the board so you're not sure? Still in the office, wondering if you should make a run for it? 

We have the answer! NexTrain brings the station display board right to you, minute by minute, using the same train updates that power the display boards themselves - National Rail Enquiries. Our goal is to bring you the same experience you can benefit from at the platform, but in your hand.
