MiStations.info is now available.
MiStations is our new, free service available to the UK rail Industry, as well as for use by the public.
The system is loaded with the National Rail Enquiries "knowledge base" as its core foundation, information that is publically available.
In addition, for members of the rail industry with an authenticated Train Operating Company (TOC) email address, there is the ability to add further localised information about a particular station - Information such as accessibility, platform ramp location, direct phone numbers, car parking and taxi companies - in fact any information can be noted and shared.
MiStations provides instant access to station information across the UK rail sector (excluding Northern Ireland).
