About the National Rail Feeds
The Rail Delivery Group through National Rail Enquiries provide a number of data feeds for passenger-facing information systems across the railway network. The developers page on the NRE website is the canonical set of information pages for the data feeds provided. They also provide a summary of all the feeds they supply in the NRE feeds developer pack.
RDG used to be known as ATOC, a number of their data feeds can be also found through the Atoc Industry Data portal.
