Open data feeds

We have a number of operational data feeds available to the public.

We hope that by providing access to our data we will encourage greater interest in rail and the development of products that are of use to passengers and the rail industry.

For examples of websites that use our feeds see our case studies page.

To register your interest in getting access to the data feeds you will need to create an account with us. We encourage all members of the public with an interest to apply. Access to the feeds will be provided on a first come, first served basis and is currently restricted to 1,000 users.

Access is provided under our terms and conditions. These may be amended from time to time.

For technical information about the formatting of the feeds and how they work see the Open Rail Data Wiki.

The data feeds are provided by and belong to Network Rail Infrastructure Limited. You may not use our brand or logo or those of any of our partners including National Rail and the train companies. Also, we do not allow any application or website using our data feeds to be called “official” as this would mislead the public.

We actively monitor the data service and will notify users if we detect any problems, however, we make no guarantees of availability or total uptime of the data feeds.
