Hi all,

Thank you all for reporting on the issue with the iRail API that it was 
sometimes showing the wrong results. I think I have solved the problem 
now (as it doesn't fail my manual testing). Could you please double 
check if it works for you now?

The culprit of this was an upgrade at the side of the NMBS/SNCB. They 
upgraded an interface to resolve station names, which didn't function as 
before. I have now updated the code and it should behave as expected again;

I'm sorry for any inconvenience this bug caused!

Kind regards,
