The Rail Delivery Group (formerly known as Association of Train Operating Companies, or simply ATOC) under their National Rail brand provide a number of data feeds for passenger-facing information systems across the railway network. The developers page on the NRE website provides information for the data feeds provided, some of which are free and some of which are chargeable. They also provide a summary of feeds they supply in the Feeds developer pack.

Outages and faults with RDG's open rail data service should be reported to dsg_darwind3.support@caci.co.uk. For more general usage support on national rail (and other open rail data), use the openraildata-talk forum.
