Hi all:
absolutely blown away by this chuffingly fantastic train times website
I've jsut discovered which lets you find train times by including your
start point, destination, departure time and date in the web address.
the basic start address (note there are no w's) is
http://traintimes.org.ukk so for example to do the search i just did for
trains from coventry to birmingham next tuesday morning at 9.30 i used
the url http://traintimes.org.uk/coventry/birmingham/09:30/2007-02-27
a few things to note - the seperater for time is : (colon)not . (dot)
and you must state dates in reverse order eg year, month, date, using -
(dash) as the seperater.
results are displayed in a table and you will need your table reading
commands to make best use of the information which puts the price first.
having such easy access to ticket prices is a first in itself.
