Is anyone else having trouble with this node?
I'm using it to show a departures board for my local station. The table does refresh, but the trains shown do not go from the station code requested (I think they are departures from Winchester):
Edit: I pass station code "GLQ" (Glasgow Queen Street).
The message retrieved from the API has msg.station = "GLQ" but msg.topic (which "shows the station code of the station selected") = "WIN"
I don't think the rail network map is currently being updated at the moment. This is the area I monitor.
I've seen a train, on a webcam, arrive and depart at Princes Risborough - but NOT on the map.
Solved. I found "WIN" hard coded in the National Rail node config. How did that get there?
ps Thanks Dave, different API I think.
Just tried to use it. Successfully registered an API key. But trying to use it in the node gives
Does it take time for the registration to activate? I had a confirmation email.
What does your API key look like? Mine is 30+ hex characters plus hyphens.
Working now. It obviously takes a bit of time to activate.
BTW, if you want parsable, reliable UK train times, try Accessible UK Train Timetables (traintimes.org.uk) - that is great for forward planning.
Yup, I use that for planning trips and/or finding an alternative route when the train I'm on is delayed / cancelled. A rare occurrence!
Matthew's site is great for planning a journey but disappointing for finding split tickets.
