Schedule records are contained within the SCHEDULE data feed, and provide information about the possible schedules available for trains. For a given train service, there may be multiple schedules listed - the date of the train service and any short / very-short term plans will affect which schedule is current.

Schedule records are encoded as a JSON hash with a key of "JsonScheduleV1" and a value containing the schedule data.

Schedule Record Fields
