I am interested in what a SQLite3 database schema would look like for a train timetable.
Generally this is presented in table format as the final result.
Sample Schedule for M to F
STATION A STATION B STATION C ... STATION K 6:00 6:15 7:30 9:00 6:30 6:45 7:45 9:30 7:00 7:15 ---- 10:00 8:00 8:15 9:30 11:00
Sample Schedule for Weekends
STATION A STATION B STATION C ... STATION K 7:00 7:15 8:30 10:00 8:30 8:45 8:45 10:30 9:00 ---- 9:30 11:00 10:00 10:15 10:30 12:00
The trains don't have any number (like the A-Train, 12 Train, etc). So we can make an internal number. Should the internal number be unique or duplicated for a Monday-Friday to a Saturday and Sunday. Then a train will stop at a number of station, but not all, and sometimes the station needs an arrival (a) and departure (d) time, or one or the other.
Stations can be ordered by their distance.
So far I am thinking I need tables for:
- Stations (ID, name, distance, line)
- Train (ID, train no, Day Operation, details)
- Train run (Train.ID, Station.ID, arr/dep, time, notes)
Is this normalised enough?
Is my Schema correct or so I need to make any changes?
