Query to frequent train travellers. I'm to undertake a journey from Howrah to Mumbai shortly. Checking how much the delay is of my train. But two services show different timings, where is my train and etrain.info show different data. Which one is actually accurate? Any idea?

i use google it has not yet been wrong once so ya

always reach 1 stop before the train reaches and if the stops are shorter then 2

always go with the most easy way that is google in this case there is not a lot of difference between it and all the other once almost all are using the same source so ya but google also tracks all train and their pattern they just dont store the data

but dont trust google maps lol

maps are complicated even for google

Where is my train is best for love train status. It's by far most popular train tracking app now acquired by Google. It collects realtime data of multiple persons present inside that train so by far most accurate

Using  " Where is my train " since many years for hundreds of train journeys....Once in a while even it will miss ...so say 95 % accuracy.

In the screenshot one can see that it's been reported that the train arrived and departed at 2041 hrs at/from Tatanagar. That led me to the suspicion of where is my train's accuracy

NTES is best.i travelled on same howrah Mumbai route.

In my case both NTES and where is my train (WIMT) were same for a long time with difference of 2 - 5 mins.

However the train took a long halt two stations before my boarding station on outer tracks.

Now comes the intresting part, WIMT is showing train arriving in 20 mins  where as NTES is not updating at all because it gets feed from certain specific points.

As WIMT is based on cell location/crowd sourcing it's inaccurate in some extreme cases.

I suggest to use NTES it's not the best but better than others.

Either it give correct info or stops updating  it will never give false information. ( or people may sue railways for incorrect information to public)
