The red circles marked with an S represent the trains, while the red squares make up the stations. Clicking on any station reveals a schedule with arrival and departure times. If you click on a moving train and click follow in the drop down menu, you’ll get a bird’s eye view with satellite images of the train as it traverses the country. Street names and stations are listed as well in the hybrid map view.
SwissTrains.ch In Their Own Words
“SBB trains live on www.swisstrains.ch Welcome! For all of you visiting this website: this site is still in ALPHA-phase, we keep on developing. The current view is based on the Swiss traintimetable, and does not yet show the actual GPS-positions of the trains. But, as Swiss trains are almost always on time, most of the time the position is accurate.
In the meantime, please help us solving the buglist by mailing me at robert (at) swisstrains (dot) ch .
23.1.20008 – We’re happy to inform you that we will shortly be adding the realtime position of the trains, based on the delay-information on http://prosurf.sbb.ch.”
Why SwissTrains.ch It Might Be A Killer
This is a rather cool mapping app. It’s provides a diverting way to check out train routes and schedules. Looks great too.
