Ignoring the name, this isn’t a website but the’s app for WP, which quite nicely on their page shows the Lumia 800 (prior to that N8, as it’s also available on Symbian)

This is useful for checking train times but you can also buy tickets from this app (and you can collect the physical ticket at the station later).
