Hello,
if I try to plan a journey from one city to another (let's say via Cleartrip) I often get several stations where I can choose from. Some of them may be located not ideal, so I am looking for a possibility to find (on a map) the location of a certain stations. Somethind like Google Maps for indian railways station codes. Is someone aware of such a possibility?

Regards,
Thorsten

You mean something like this?


Is there one for Cologne that tells a clueless Westphalian how to catch a train departing from Köln Messe-Deutz tief?

Yes, the Indianrailinfo map is useful. Through repeated clicks on a city you get a large-scale map that shows stations. By clicking on each station icon you get the name. This still doesn't help if you are looking for trains from Mumbai and get one that departs from Vasai Road. Unless you know where Vasai Road is you can't find it on the map. If you type in Vasai Road it gives a map you can enlarge but then you have to click randomly on the staion signs till you get the right one. This is site of the geeks, for the geeks and certainly not for the cartographically challenged.

I found the indianrailinfo map earlier, and there also used to be a search for stations, but now it's greyed out. You used to get something like this when searching for station DEE, for example, which was perfect.
I don't know if I am doing something wrong or if it just isn't working for a moment, but I thought there might be other sites with a similar approach.

I am not sure what is that you require. If I am traveling from Mumbai (BCT, BDTS) to Delhi (NDLS, DLI, NZM) I can board at any of the 2 stations from Mumbai and get down at any of the 3 stations in Delhi. As far as I know I am getting down at Delhi. Now where I get down will depend on the availability of the seats in the train.

Now if I want to get down at NDLS and I do not get confirmed seats in the train that halts at NDLS then should I not travel or travel in a train that halts at NZM or DLI?

I just put the station code in the 'from station' box at the top of the page, select the station name and when it appears in the box click it to get the drop down menu which includes the Map option. It was working just now.
