Keeping up with modern technology, IRCTC was introduced as a solution to bring down the huge rush of passengers in the railway stations and make ticket booking and other enquiries easy and simple. Now you don’t have to stand in long queues in front of the booking counters. The website of IRCTC allows you to check all details on trains, including the IRCTC train schedule
By logging on to the website of IRCTC and filling in the name of the train or the code number of the train, you get a full detail of the train right from the station where it starts, the departure time, the names of the stations on the way in which it has halts, and the destination station along with the arrival time.  If you give the source and destination stations, a list of all the trains running on that route will be displayed on the monitor, along with their timings and stoppages at each station. This helps you to choose the train of your choice and book your ticket after checking the seat availability. 
Other than the online method, you can also check the schedule of trains in a number of other ways, which include asking at the railway station, calling at the call centers and asking the customer care officials, contacting the travel agents and using your mobile phones. Sending an SMS to the number 139 also provides you with all information on trains. 
Besides the websites of IRCTC and India Railways, checking of IRCTC train schedule is also possible on other travel and tourism websites.

There are as many as 1000 trains running under Indian Railways, connecting various parts of the country. Indian Railways has assigned a unique code to each of the railway stations, so that the passengers can get the latest information on them within a few seconds. To check the IRCTC train schedule, you have to logon to the website of IRCTC and enter the station codes of the source and destination stations. This will provide you a list of all the trains running on the route specified along with their timings.
