We are Railway Data

And we cover the UK & NI's national rail, light rail, tramway and Traws Cymru networks.

About us

Starting life in 2012 as an unofficial site for the East Lancashire Railway, providing a journey planner, fare finder and details on signalling, our aim was to release data in different formats so that different groups of people could benifit. Fast-forward to 2023, and we still have the same ethos. Releasing data in different and unique formats, only now, we're working with national rail, light rail and private railway data, adding and updating content on a regular basis.
