German Trains Live on Google Maps
Germany's national railway operator DB Bahn has released a live Google Map showing the location of all the transit network's trains in real-time.
The DB Bahn Live Map animates all the trains' markers to show the current position of the trains in near real-time. The positions of the trains on the map are calculated from the drive-in or exit reports at stations and from the latest train messages.
Users can click on individual trains on the map to view what time the train left its last station and when it is expected to arrive at the next station.
