BeRail V1.X!


BeRail is an open source Sailfish OS application to plan your journeys on the Belgian railway. It uses the iRail API as source of information and is officially part of the iRail project.


  • 100% native Silica components
  • Python Object Oriented backend with integrated debug logging
  • Routeplanner with an easy switch between the departure and arrival station
  • Liveboard in the old NMBS style which remembers your last station
  • Favourite departure and arrival station
  • Disturbances & delays
  • Many more!


  1. If you use a Sailfish OS version lower then 2.1.0.X then you should do an update first before using BeRail.

The beta version of BeRail is available on Openrepos, as soon as it's stable the release version will be available on Openrepos and the Jolla Store.

Some SNCB/NMBS railway stations changed their name. So they are ignored by this app. Examples: Rochefort-Jemelle (formerly Jemelle) and Kontich.

BeRail uses the official iRail stations list for search operations.
I made a pull request on their Github page in order to update it.
