Python 3 Script to Get Live Running Status of Train and Live PNR Status Using Railways API Full Project For Beginners

Python 3 Script to Get Live Running Status of Train and Live PNR Status Using Railways API Full Project For Beginners

 

Welcome folks today in this blog post we will be getting live running status of train and also the pnr status of train using the railways api in python. All the full source code of the application is shown below.

 

 

Get Started

 

 

In order to get started we need to get the railway api api_key as shown below

 

Official Railway Website

 

Now get the api_key from the series of steps as shown below

 

 

Now just store your api_key from your account and store it we will use it later inside the python script

 

Now make an app.py file and copy paste the code which is given below

 

app.py

 

Live Status of Train

 

# Python program to find live train 
# status using RAILWAY API

# import required modules
import requests , json

# enter your api key here
api_key = "API_KEY"

# base_url variable to store url
base_url = "https://api.railwayapi.com/v2/live/train/"

# enter train_number here
train_number = "12056"

# enter current date in dd-mm-yyyy format
current_date = "28-02-2021"

# complete_url variable to
# store complete url address
complete_url = base_url + train_number + "/date/" + current_date + "/apikey/" + api_key + "/"

# get method of requests module
# return response object
response_ob = requests.get(complete_url)

# json method of response object convert
# json format data into python format data
result = response_ob.json()

# Now result contains a list of nested dictionaries
# Check the value of "response_code" key is equal
# to "200" or not if equal that means record is 
# found otherwise record is not found
if result["response_code"] == 200 :

    # train name is extracting from
    # the result variable data   
    train_name = result["train"]["name"]

    # store the value or data of
    # "route" key in variable y
    temp = result["route"]

    # source station name is extracting
    # from the y variable data
    source_station = temp[0]["station"]["name"]

    # destination station name is
    # extracting from the y varibale data
    destination_station = temp[-1]["station"]["name"]
    
    # store the value of "position"
    # key in variable position
    position = result["position"]

    # print details
    print(" train name : " + str(train_name)
        + "\n source station : " + str(source_station)
        + "\n destination station : "+ str(destination_station)
        + "\n current status : " + str(position) )
    
else :
    print("Record not Found")

Live PNR Status of Train

 

 

app.py

 

# Python program to find PNR 
# status using RAILWAY API

# import required modules
import requests, json

# Enter API key here
api_key = "Your_API_key"

# Enter valid pnr_number
pnr_number = "6515483790"

# Stores complete url address
complete_url = base_url + pnr_number + "/apikey/" + api_key + "/"

# get method of requests module
# return response object
response_ob = requests.get(complete_url)

# json method of response object convert
# json format data into python format data
result = response_ob.json()

# now result contains list
# of nested dictionaries

    # key in pnr_num variable

    # "total_passengers" key in variable
    total_passengers = result["total_passengers"]

    # store the value or data of "passengers"
    # key in variable passengers_list
    passengers_list = result["passengers"]

    # store the value or data of
    # "chart_prepared" key in variable
    chart_prepared = result["chart_prepared"]

    # print following values
    print(" train name : " + str(train_name)
