Passengers travelling in night trains usually wake up early to know which station the train currently passed by. During early morning hours or at night the visibility of outside railway station boards at stations are not clear from travelling trains. Passengers are often frustrated with wanting to know the details regarding the station. The proposed idea is to develop an information system using LED boards in coaches for providing real time information regarding the current station passed by. This cost effective approach enhances user experience by not disturbing the passengers sleep in night trains as they need to wake up much early to avoid their destination been passed. Currently travelers rely on wakeup call service using 139 services or manually search the place using other map services using GPS. Map services by Google rely completely on availability of Internet services like 3G and above networks which is not a reliable network during train travels and consumes huge battery power and packet data. The proposed system employs broadcasting of station information from a unit at station to the unit in train engine wirelessly upon the entry of that train to a station. The engine unit then updates this information in the LED units at each coach in real time.
