I am a new user here. I was checking for arrival status for train number 11014. The information shown here was incorrect.
1. It shows that train left Bangalore Cantt. when in reality the train arrived at Bangalore City Junction at 3:45
2. It shows Platform 1; but actually the train arrived at platform 2.

Bangalore Cantt is always confusing with regard this train-as it crosses Bangalore Cantt twice-so though BNC is marked only for return, arrival is taken when it enters there 1st-so thats always a problem
Train used to arrrive on Pf-1 regularly- migh tbe some platform change now-12785/86 always used to be on 2 but nowdays guess its getting shunted-need to check out
Thanks for info and welcome to IRI :)

Thanks for clarification. Happy to see constructive response. I feel like contributing to this site now. Thanks.
Is it possible to modify the programming logic used for reporting the status? If so, we can modify it to ignore first entry to BNC for this train alone and then report SBC and consider second entry details for BNC. Reverse logic for 11013 (return train). Just a thought. I guess its possible to do conditional updates in the program.

There are two reason for this being a tough to meet yet logical idea.
One.The running status of trains is recorded by the official site based on the time the train crosses each 'check-point' as you can call it simply. IRI simply fetches the data from there and reports it in a user friendly fashion without any adulteration whatsoever. So we're more of fettered to any errors (which are not rare to be frank).

Two. Even in the official site every crossing HAS to be reported because the logic is not train specific and goes for every train. Exceptions would be tough to include I feel.

A week back i saw this train on PF 4 as PF 3 was occupied by SBC-KCG SF, PF 2 by SBC-GKP SF and PF 1 by SBC-NDLS SF. Platform numbers are subjected to change owing to availability. Regarding arrival at Bangalore Cantt. couple of trains like this which touches BNC twice have this problem which is well explained by Siddharth:)

To address this issue, effective tomorrow, ALL...

    -@all members: As of recently, there has been a trend whereby minor name updates of Trains/Stations - whether such and such regional name should be there or not, whether the train should be called "Abc Express" or "Abc Superfast Express", etc. are threatening to take over the majority of Timeline entries.
