There have been a couple of updates to the train allocation capability on Realtime Trains over the last few weeks.
Locomotive Services Limited
Locomotive Services Limited are the next operator to join the service in publishing train allocations. They are a relatively new train operating company based in Crewe specialising in charter services. Allocations for their services are available from today.
We’re grateful to the assistance provided by Atlantic Rail Solutions in facilitating this release.
LNER have now agreed that the train allocations of their services can be made public. The site is now displaying the unit allocations of their Class 800 and 801 ‘Azuma’ fleet. We are working towards publishing the data for their Class 91 ‘Electra’ fleet.
You can now search for allocations using the Quick Search box at the top of any page, which supports any locomotive or unit used by our supporting operators.
As with the normal functionality of Quick Search, it will default to passenger services unless you are in the detailed mode. To search for freight or charter service operations, add detailed to the end of any search in the box or be on any detailed mode page.
The Quick Search service searches for trains departing on the same day as your search and will return services in a current, next and previous preferential order.
