This is not specific to our app and affects all rail apps in the same way.
If at some point you encounter a persistent issue with the service we do have access to technical support from NRE. For these and any other issues you may have, you can contact our support department through the About tab on the app. We read and respond to all requests and will always do our utmost to help.

As ever, your great reviews keep the updates coming. If you like Live Train Times, please take the time to give us a nice review: it really helps!
This app has changed my life! Sounds dramatic I know but I no longer spend my life on platforms waiting for trains to find out its delayed. I know the train is delayed before its even shown on the display, giving me that 5 more minutes doing my hair or taking the bin out.
The app comes into its own when you are racing around a large station to catch the train leaving in minutes as it tells you what platform too - saving wasted minutes fighting the crowds to look at the board and make the train, rather than seeing it pull away and then heading back to the board to find you have to wait another 30 mins. Thank you for saving me from spending valuable time waiting around!
So simple & fast - indispensable!
Because of this app, I know my train platform before I get into the station. I know when there are service disruptions, what is delayed and why - on many occasions it seems even before the driver of the train does. I can store all my possible commonly used routes as favourites so I can compare train times quickly, to be most efficient in getting to where I need to be. I use it so much now, that I would be lost without it!
Simple and effective
I commute every day on the train, this app is essential. It's fast and simple to use and some times more up to date than the boards in the station.
I suspect if you are an infrequent commuter or looking for a journey planner you'll want to look else where, this is for people who know where they are going and need to know how badly the rail system is screwed up today or where they hell they moved your train too!
