EULYNX is exhibiting at InnoTrans 2018!

The EULYNX stand will provide key information about the EULYNX Consortium and will showcase the ProRail Proof of Concept Open Interlocking Network.
A demonstration will show the results of the cooperation between ProRail and a wide range of engineering bureaus and suppliers with the aim to collect experience in applying EULYNX interface specifications in open dialogue. Seeing is believing!

Visit EULYNX at InnoTrans 2018, Berlin 18 - 21 September, Freigelände O/628
DB facilitates the EULYNX stand at InnoTrans.,c135310

EULYNX team looks forward to see you in Berlin!

When considering the business challenges facing the railways and recognising the opportunities provided by a collaborative approach to Command and Control Systems (CCS), Infrastructure Managers consider that a joint development of a future 'Reference CCS Architecture' (RCA) will have many benefits. A White Paper has therefore been developed to express the thoughts of the members of the ERTMS Users Group and the EULYNX Consortium.

The RCA White Paper is aimed at:

  • Highlighting the opportunities associated with Infrastructure Managers working together to develop a single modular framework for future CCS where the interfaces that are being developed within EULYNX are a vital cornerstone
  • Providing a common understanding for Infrastructure Managers, industry partners and other stakeholders on the RCA initiative
  • Providing the background and justification for the RCA initiative
  • Providing direction to industry partners and other stakeholders, including recognition of the benefits associated with building upon and aligning existing developments such as ETCS, ETCS Game Changers, EULYNX and Shift2Rail
  • Providing assurance that the RCA initiative will respect existing CCS investments by recognising the need for a flexible migration approach

The White Paper also highlights how the Infrastructure Managers will organise their collaborative approach, utilizing the existing ERTMS Users Group and EULYNX Consortium to provide the technical direction and development activities. It also identifies the need for engagement with Railway Undertakings and Suppliers.

A first set of object controllers was installed at Annaberg-Buchholz; explained in the following YouTube

The digital signalling system in Annaberg-Buchholz operated by the Erzgebirgsbahn marks the beginning of the nation-wide implementation of a new generation of signalling systems. In this video, Klaus Müller (CTO DB Netz AG) and Lutz Mehlhorn (Head of Erzgebirgsbahn) introduce the biggest infrastructure project in the history of Deutsche Bahn. Through this, DB will achieve rail transportation that is more efficient both economically and environmentally, as well as fulfilling passengers’ demand for capacity and punctuality.

In order to enable future partial replacement of system elements European infrastructure managers feel the need for standardisation of the interfaces between these elements. With the EULYNX approach subsystems can be replaced without the need for a complete renewal of the interlocking.


As part of an update of Baseline set 2, published on 13 July 2018, EULYNX has published updated versions of the following documents:

Eu.Doc.43  Requirements specification for subsystem TDS v2.1 (0.A)
Eu.Doc.44  Interface specification SCI-TDS v2.1 (0.A)
Eu.Doc.11  EULYNX Documentation plan v2.1 (0.A)
The documents can be found at the usual location, Published Documents, replacing the superceded documents.
