Indian rail network is the fourth largest rail network in the world. Recent time many sufficient progresses for the passenger were done by the government. Even though in a long travel, passengers may face many difficulties. Among them water scarcity is the major problem. Normally at the starting point, the train gets filled with water. Perchance water dearth is take place. The main goal of this paper is to create a constructive system to the rail network to solve this problem of water scarcity. The dynamically rising Internet of Things (IoT) demand has led to wide-ranging developments in the rail network and make use of it with the potential execution with its easy, flexible and advanced technology. Thus, when the level of the water is decrease below the point that mentioned, using the IoT based sensor that indicates the cloud server to store the details of the train. From the server the geographical location of the train is found and deliver a notification to the authorities of the nearby railway station for a warning alert.
