London: local trains?
This is a great idea, but I noticed my local 10min journey does not show
I’d love to integrate London local trains, if you can point me to data (preferrably GTFS data) for them.
i'd agree, in South London a significant number of commuters use trains, so the isochrone is very limited without those inluded. not sure it's in the format you require but ATOC (Association of Train Operating Companies in the UK) provide this data option: http://www.atoc.org/about-atoc/rail-settlement-plan/data-feeds/conditions/ and some info on data here http://www.atoc.org/about-atoc/rail-settlement-plan/data-feeds/types-of-data/ Hope that helps.
I know this probably won't help, but my journey between West Ealing to Paddington on the Heathrow Connect takes 13 or 16 minutes on First Great Western trains and this is not reflected on the map.
I can find this infomation through http://journeyplanner.tfl.gov.uk/user/XSLT_TRIP_REQUEST2?language=en or http://nationalrail.co.uk/times_fares/ldb/
@Michal, thanks for notifying me! Looks promising. However, I have to convert the format to something actually useful, will take some time.

There seems to be a change and this information is now available here http://data.atoc.org/how-to
I don't know all the technical details, but the website http://www.commutefrom.com/ seems to have figured out some way to do this.
National rail are notoriously closed when it comes to this. http://www.wired.co.uk/news/archive/2010-11/03/railtrack-open-data-apps http://mocko.org.uk/b/2010/10/29/national-rail-have-killed-my-train-times-app/
Stefan, thanks for the update. I have spent few hours yesterday searching for that sort of information and it seems to be not available. There is information with all the stops (including train satiations) but not the schedules. The only public information is typically web or pdf timetable for a given train operator and there are dozen of them in UK.
Not positive outcome of the research :-(
Sorry, no timeline. I'm not actively hunting for the data or lobbying for its release. If anyone points me to a reasonable dataset that encompasses local trains, I will munge it in ASAP.
You can help by searching for data and/or asking the train company for free data (preferable in the GTFS format).
Stefan, it seems that status of this item is planned. Do you have any timeline for this?
Thank you for your response. The only data I ever came across was by this guy:
Good luck with the project.
