The EULYNX Data Preparation cluster is a workgroup in EULYNX that designs a model of signalling engineering information. Our goal is to attain digital continuity of the exchange of signalling data between IM’s and signalling industry.

Seamless exchange of information will accelerate (re-)signalling work as engineering information is no longer sourced from a mosaic of plans and documents but from a structured set of data.

A new public snapshot of the signalling model has been published, and is directly available on this link. Notable additions in the current snapshot are the ETCS package, geodata (aligned with UIC RailSystemModel), worker safety and traction- power supply.

The EULYNX Data Preparation cluster is on schedule to finalise the model by the end of 2021 and will then deliver an XML schema and the matching UML model. 

Please refer to the EULYNX DataPrep pages that explain the contributions of EULYNX DataPrep to railway signalling.

Bane NOR is moving forward in implementing its national ERTMS Programme. In the spring of 2020, the technology was deployed on the Roa – Hønefoss line to provide a “live” test environment. To this end, the ERTMS Test Lab and ERTMS Training centre has been opened. Norway’s first railway line equipped with ERTMS Level 2 Baseline 3 will open in October 2022. Bane NOR will comply with the EULYNX specification for its standardized signalling system interfaces. In the autumn of 2020, Bane NOR has as the first Infrastructure Manager completed the first successful implementation of the EULYNX SCI-CC (TMS-RBC/IL) interface, between two different suppliers Siemens (RBC/IL) and Thales (TMS).

The RCA Baseline set 0 Release 1 has been updated with the Cyber Security guideline, a common deliverable from OCORA/RCA/EULYNX. Detailed information is available in the release notes.

Last year, the EULYNX consortium and UNIFE CCS Platform agreed to cooperate in the review of interface specifications for interlocking technology.
Three representatives of the railway suppliers are regularly invited to take part in the review of specifications and make suggestions from the products development point of view.

The cooperation represents a way to enable both parties - suppliers and railways - to improve the specifications. On the one hand, the need for queries and changes after the publication of the specifications decreases significantly; on the other hand, EULYNX can benefit from suggestions for improvement from the suppliers. The cooperation takes place within the so-called Change Control Board (CCB) and on-request advices from the industry to the EULYNX Architecture Cluster. Based on the production of extensive review comments, the return of experience proves to be positive and marks a first step towards a wider collaboration with the industry, which will be the user of the specifications in the development of EULYNX enabled products. The review process is complex and regularly produces extensive review comments.

For the future EULYNX specifications, the suppliers can bring in their point of view earlier in the process and actively contribute to the improvement and feasibility of the specifications. This is the way to ensure a continuous and collaborative development of EULYNX specifications.

The EULYNX Consortium has published an updated documentation release Baseline Set 3 Release 6. The EULYNX Baseline Set 3 Release 6 is an update within Baseline Set 3 after the earlier Releases 1-5. It delivers 2 updated documents related to SCI-RBC, integrating the functionality of ETCS L1 into SCI-RBC.

This marks the completion of Baseline set 3, making this release a stable and comprehensive set of specifications, serving as basis for industry developments and infrastructure manager deployments. Future developments in EULYNX will be introduced as part of Baseline set 4 (planned from December 2021 onward).

All deliverables are in PDF format, deliverables originating from DOORS are also available in requirements interchange format ReqIF.

Documents are available for download to the registered users. If your organisation does not have yet registered access please fill out the  folder registration form
