MMM-UKNationalRail - Rail departure info for specific UK Railway stations



  • Hello,

    Does anyone have a multi-station configuration working? I also do not get any headers showing - anyone managed to solve that one?

    Thanks in advance



  • Headers have been broken for a while now. Happened after MM version update. Not sure if @nwootton is still working on this or not though.

    Also not been able to get multi-station working. The fix I used was just to have 2 modules listed one after each other (ie, duplicate the code in the config file, including API etc). That seems to work fine.



  • Hi Bob,

    Thanks for the information. I’ve been playing and have fixed up the header not being shown and in addition have added column headings such as "Platform, To, From, Planned, Actual and Status to the displayed table.

    I have seen in the forums elsewhere you do have to have multiple modules in order to get multiple stations which I suppose is OK, but a bit awkward. I may have a look to see if this can be all rolled into one config section.

    One other feature I would like to work on is this: My partner travels home eveyday and says what train she is on, but never knows what time it will arrive at our home station - I want to see if it is possible to have a a listing of the possible trains with the departue and arrival times. As I’m very new to all this, it’s going to hurt my head coding it I suspect.

    Hi Tenpin,

    Sounds like me and you want the same thing!
    I’m currently having issues with my module updating after a refresh though, don’t know what is going on there! Essentially after I restart the Mirror, the module will work for a couple of hours, then when I get up the next day it will still be showing last nights times, almost like it’s frozen.
    How did you get the Header sorted and column headings?

    I am also using MMM-ModuleScheduler to display the specific Trains at different times.
    I have three modules running see below, where my app id and app key I have replaced with xxx.
    One for my partner, Monday to Friday from Home to Work in the morning. Stirling - Dundee (See Station Code is Stirling, calling_at: Dundee)
    One for my partner, Monday to Friday from Work to Home in the evening. Dundee - Stirling (See Station Code is Stirling, called_at: Dundee)
    One for me, Tuesday to Thursday from Home to Work in the morning. Stirling - Glasgow (See Station Code is Stirling, calling_at: Glasgow)

    This is my partner’s trians for coming home

    See it doesn’t list Stirling. It lists end destination and origin station.
