Sorry if this thread already exists- if so please can you point me in the right direction? What is the best way to find the latest train info?

This morning I was booked on 12403, the Agra Cant to Jaipur train at 7.15. I checked on India rail info at 6am and there was nothing on there to suggest it would be anything different to that. When i got to the station we were told it was actually going from Agra Fort station and the time had been brought forward to 6.50. Fortunately it was delayed by 3.5 hours, but otherwise we would have missed it.

Where should I have checked?

I looked at Indiarailinfo just now which lists this information on the timetable page for train 12403 http://indiarailinfo.com/train/36

The page includes this prominent notice.

It didn't appear like that on the browser on my phone. There is a message that says "no recent news for this train" and when you try to access anything more you get pop up boxes which are impossible to read. Is there an easier to use site than this?

Indiarailinfo claims to have a mobile app but I have never used it.

I just tried Indiarailinfo on my phone. At the bottom of the page there is a link to go to the desktop site which I clicked. I then typed in train number 12403 and turned my phone to landscape. The message above appeared and was perfectly legible.

The site is dependent on its members spotting announcements in the press and uploading the links. Indian Railways are very good at announcing things but no so good at meeting the announced deadlines.
