Darwin moves out of the jungle
Real-time train information for passengers has long been a problem and it still is, even in these days of information technology and instant communications. The railways in Britain have been developing a system called "Darwin", which is trying to improve real-time information to passengers, particularly at times of disruption. An interesting article about Darwin, "Real time rail passenger information – Jungle or Minefield?" has just been written by Clive Kessel of Rail.co. It's an interesting summary of the current state of development.
