ATOC (http://www.atoc.org/) - who represent all the train operating
companies - have released the UK timetable data in raw format at
http://data.atoc.org/, updated weekly. They haven't so far made any
other data sets available, such as fares information. They appear to be
against making real-time data available from their systems without
plenty of conditions and licence fees. It is an effort... but to get
access to the information!
Network Rail (http://www.networkrail.co.uk/) - who operate the rail
infrastructure - are going to be releasing real-time data 'quite soon
now'. If it's similar to the real-time data I already have from them,
it will be in a very raw format.
I'm happy to talk to anyone who's interested in what's going on in the
UK at the moment with regard to rail data openness.
