Click on Tools, Show Position to display your current position on the map, and click on Keep Centred to centre the map on your position. To use this feature you need your device's location switched on, and your browser/device will probably ask for your permission to allow the RailMapOnline webpage to access the information. The maps and geolocation may be innacurate, so don't trust this feature for navigating.
