Train Service IDs

James Singleton edited this page Sep 13, 2016 · 3 revisions

To get the details of an individual train use the following URL format:

/service/[GUID Service ID]?accessToken=[Your GUID token]

The service ID can be found for each service inside the station board responses.

This endpoint accepts the GUID representation of the ID as /, + and case sensitivity can cause trouble in a URL path if you're not careful. You can make a GUID version of a Service ID with code like this:

var sid = new Guid(Convert.FromBase64String(si.serviceID));

You can still use the Base64 version but to avoid issues you should include it as a query string parameter instead of in the path:

/service?accessToken=[Your GUID token]&ServiceId=[Base64 Service ID]


A better solution may be to use Base64 URL safe encoding. Huxley provides and accepts this.
