Indian Railways Train Enquiry system got new Enhancement

Today I came across Indian Railways new Train enquiry website with different new user friendly feature. Currently this website is under BETA testing.The website will be launched in coming next week. The look and feel of site is very simple .When you browse the site you will feel like your are visiting a search engine website. new web look is available here.

CRIS, the IT wing of Indian Railways, is beta testing an improved and clutter-free version of the Train Enquiry website that is far more useful than the existing one. The new website will not only provide the running status of trains but will also help you track the exact location of trains across the country.
This website is having unique feature you need not to remember long train name or train number,just you can enter source and destination you will get the corresponding trains list and you can select the train to get the update of running train. This website primary focused on Train enquiry as of now.

If we look from developer prospective this website has used AJAX.This website is as of now is not mobile friendly,but hope they will come out with some solutions.
Once you spot your train in the search results, just click on the train you will get detail of departure time of previous two station.It will also predict how far are next two station and its expected time to reach there.
Small pictorial tutorial is also available on website here.
