Dear All,

Would you mind answering the following questions for me?

1. Category
Regarding to the wiki, "category" means
'“train type” or “train category”. Depending on the system, these
terms are defined quite differently.'
( http://wiki.railml.org/index.php?title=TT:category ).
And category can express “trainUsage”, “deadrun” and

But in "TT_S-Bahn_ZH.xml", the "category" instance has only following

<category id="d2e125" />

Could I get a sample file of "category" with “trainUsage”,
“deadrun” and “categoryPriority”?

2. Rosterings

2.1 blockPart - trainPartRef

According to the wiki,
"trainPartRef: This refers to the id attribute of the associated
<trainPart> element. "
( http://wiki.railml.org/index.php?title=TT:blockPart )

I'd like to know the relationship between Join/Split operation and the
amount of "trainPart". If there is a Join/Split, could a blockPart have
multiple "trainPart"?

If somebody has a example file that has both Join/Split operation, please
send it to me.

2.2 block - blockGroupNumber

There's no precise description that explains "blockGroupNumber" on the

The role of “blockGroupNumber” is uncertain for me, even regarding
"TT_Rostering_edit.xml" as follows;

<block id="d2e1628" blockGroupNumber="1">

<block id="d2e1672" blockGroupNumber="1">

<block id="d2e1711" blockGroupNumber="1">

I’d like to know the meaning that “d2e1628”, “d2e1672” and
“d2e1711” belong to same “blockGroupNumber”.

1) What does blockGroupNumber mean?
2) Is "blockGroupNumber" mandatory attribute?

Best regards,
Utah (Yutaka Manchu)
