If I enter "when is the next train to X" or "next train to X" etc. maybe it could give me a live train time suggestion for perhaps the next two or three trains. I would assume that (at least initially) this would only allow journeys with no changes. The price for this journey could even be displayed.

In the UK this information could come from the National Rail Enquiries website and your location could assume the closest station to your IP address.

This would require LOTS of work because duckduckgo is international and you would need to find ALL of the trains, which includes National Rail Enquiries, Translink (Australia, I mean here), etc...

But I do like the idea.

That does sound like a lot of work, but like you say, a VERY useful feature.
