TAG for other zones

Do the other IR zones publish their timetables on the web a la TAG 2009 from Indian Railways ? Any links available?

By the way on TAG 2009 , the link to Tatkal reservation under Passenger Information still doesnt work. I finally bought the hard copy of TAG to read it up!

Is there really no way to get a pdf file of the entire TAG?
For those of us who travel with laptops, a pdf of the whole file would be might convenient...

The good news is there finally seems to be a fixed URL (web address) for the TAG (Trains at a Glance), so it shouldn't change anymore with each edition: http://www.indianrailways.gov.in/Deptts/Coaching/Tag/.

I don't think there's any easy way to download it in full though; realize while it's not an expensive buy, it wouldn't be in their interest to provide it that way. I don't know of railway companies anywhere else providing their full timetables for free. It's already quite exceptional for the Indian Railways to have the whole thing online like that.

It costs Rs. 45 or so on the spot; well worth the investment for any remotely serious train travel (it used to be rather more portable than it is now though, but, it's still not overly bulky).

One can dowload it table-by-table:

And the AMTRAK timetable can be dowloaded for free, of course again table-by-table. But then they also give out their paper timetables free of cost.

I think their whole site (so indianrailways.gov.in) is going through another unfortunate overhaul (or being outphased or whatever), it's not been working with me of late when I've tried.

Or then had stuff missing that I like to consult over the course of questions here whenever it is up, whatever. We'll see how it works out.

Yes, the above link is working but it is TAG 2009 not TAG 2010 which I presume is not released yet.

This year TAG will be released in July 2010. Usually TAG release in July but last year due to General election it was delay and released in Nov 2009.

Thumbs up New Time tables from other Divisions

As other divisions of the Indian Railway are also releasing their specific time tables, request IM forum members to upload weblinks to these tables as and when made available.

Thanks in advance
