Trainman - About

Trainman is a one-stop-shop for checking PNR statuses of various required trains. It's used to check the predictions after the train tickets are booked on IRCTC. Searching for various stations in one train's route is also done here. The time the concerned trains stop at each station is mentioned within the app properly. It's the most preferable railway site for train's information.
