The latest version of trains at a glance is also available in PDF format at some websites but it's all in small parts, and we haven't yet found a complete version of Trains at a Glance on any website.

Also, it's a copyright of railway. So, we don't think it can be made available in PDF format.

The trains at a glance is not only useful for finding which trains are available across various stations of India but it also provide more useful information like, halting time of various trains on stations, distance between two railway stations, updates on railway rules, important information for travelers, and also how to book online tickets and cancel them on online railway reservation system explained at IRCTC login for next generation eticketing system in this blog some time ago.

Trains at a Glance, is a handy guide bout out every year by the Ministry of Railways for the convenience of regular intercity and long distance travelers as well as foreign and domestic tourists.

The timings of all the Mail/Express trains operated by Indian Railways are indicated in this book. However, the tables do not indicate all the stoppages of a train - only stoppages at important stations are shown.
