    Hi all,

    I use National Rail services to commute to and from school everyday and I was wondering whether anyone knew a good way (preferably a mobile app) to reliably be informed of real time alerts of UK rail disruptions? I have set the National Rail's email service on, but I find that it is quite unreliable.

    If anyone could suggest a good way to do it, that would be great.

    Thank you very much!

    Twitter is usually reliable and I imagine that the National Rail website (instead of their email service) would be more reliable.

    As stated above, Twitter is good. Follow National Rail themselves or the train providers you are travelling with. The National Rail app is also updated with info at the same time as twitter and includes a live departure board; so if you're watching a certain service, it'll pop up if there are any problems.

    Thank you for your replies. I was wondering whether there would be a way to get notifications specifically on the service that I wish to use?
