Thank you to Tom Cairns and the rest of the RTT for providing this service and for being speedy with tech support. Shut up and let them take your money https://secure.realtimetrains.co.uk/fundraising/
Using real-time open data from network rail via the Real Time Trains API, Nuclear Trains is a bot that tweets and toots when a freight train departs a nuclear power plant: including a link detailing its time and position.
Trains are not guaranteed to be pulling nuclear waste flasks, and even if they are, the flasks may or may not be full.
This project has no stance on nuclear energy, and its main objective is to provide a quantitative and real-time source of information about the movement of nuclear waste in the UK.
Any more features/whatnot you can tweet at us or raise an issue here.
By default this is set up to use the
searchv2 endpoints on the RTT API because these are the endpoint that work for Freight Trains which is what we need for our application.
If you are using
realtimetrains.py and haivng problems getting resonpses from the server and your username and password are definitely correct, try changing
30 LOCATION_SEARCH = "searchv2" 31 TRAIN_SEARCH = "servicev2"
30 LOCATION_SEARCH = "search" 31 TRAIN_SEARCH = "service"
