What’s New

Version 102

Nothing huge to report in this update, so we thought we'd give you some fun facts instead.

1. Europe's terminus with the most platforms – 32 – is Munich Hauptbahnhof in Germany.

2. Switzerland’s Jungfraujoch station sits high up in the Alps at an elevation of 11,332 ft. earning it the nickname Top of Europe.

3. The world's oldest railway bridge in continuous use is Skerne Bridge in Darlington, UK, which opened in 1825 and still carries trains to this day.

Editors’ Notes

Anyone who’s booked train tickets in the UK knows it can be a labyrinthine task. Am I buying off-peak tickets? What is off-peak? What is “super” off-peak? Am I getting the best deal? We were thrilled to have all this—and more—finally made clear as day by a souped-up Trainline app. It’s become as essential to our train travel as a fully charged phone battery.

Sluggish on iPhone 6

This app is convenient for finding dates and tickets, but In the last few months it has become pretty freezy and crashy on iPhone 6. This is a problem when you need times and tickets in a hurry like at a station.

It also takes quite some time to load barcode tickets on iPhone 6.

Performance is somewhat improved with WiFi turned off.

Useless

This app is about as much good as their website. First I tried to book a ticket online and have it delivered electronically but this is not an option. The options are delivered by mail or pick up at a ticket machine. After I booked the tickets I find out you can’t pick up your tickets at Heathrow Airport because there’s no ticket machines there! You have to go to the rail station to pick up your tickets and then go to the underground. In frustration I downloaded this app in the hopes of transferring my ticket to my apple wallet. This is not an option. All I wanted was a ticket emailed to me so I wouldn’t have to walk around Heathrow trying to find my tickets after a 12 hour flight.

Developer Response ,

Hi there. We are looking at ways to introduce digital tickets on all routes, however at present these are only available on some as determined by the Train Operators who run the trains. Ticket machines are available at Heathrow station and more information can be found on our website in the help section. -Jamie
