Problem faced finding Train position
Once we travelled to the station all the way from home only to realize that the train was cancelled due to the railway track problem near Wardha. Had we known that there is a trusted source of information we can rely on, we would have saved our loads of time and efforts of travel. It seems risky to trust a website saying that your train is 8 hours delayed or cancelled altogether. This is mainly because we don’t know any official trusted sources for this information.
