About

The Darwin Web Service (Staff) is a SOAP API which allows access to more detailed information about arrivals and departures from a station. The additional data available includes train reporting numbers (colloquially called 'headcodes'), schedule UIDs and Retail Service IDs (RSID), plus passing points for trains.

This is the same data that is presented on the Darwin Web Service (Public), but in greater detail.

API

Documentation for the LBD-SV can be found here LDB-SV User Guide. Further guidance and advice can be found here LDBSVWS - Guidance Note v1. Whilst last updated in 2014, much of the information is still current and correct. An updated version will be added to this site in due course.

The API uses SOAP, which is not necessarily a developer's first choice. Check out the Huxley API proxy, which can be used to put a lightweight JSON endpoint in front of the API.


The OpenLDB (Staff) provides SOAP 1.1 and 1.2 endpoints which supports the following operations;
