The train timetable is a crucial resource for anyone traveling by train in India. The purpose of the railway timetable is to coordinate the movement of trains throughout India by considering their route and halt stations.

This synchronization helps in avoiding any potential accidents or disruptions, ensuring the smooth and safe operation of trains.

In such cases, redRail offers an updated list of rescheduled train routes for the next few days.
