Dear all,

the element <track> has an attribute @description and a repeatable child
element <trackDescr>, which both are based on datatype xs:string.

My questions to you: For which purpose do you use which description? Do
you use the <trackDescr> at all? Can you provide us an example of a
track with the different kind of descriptions?

Based on your feedback, we may update the wiki page [1] and close the
Trac ticket [2]. If <trackDescr> is not used, we may also declare it
DEPRECATED with railML version 2.4.

[2] http://trac.railml.org/ticket/113

Best regards

Dear Christian,

we currently don't use <track description= > nor <trackDescr>.

I would prefer keeping <track description= > and declaring <trackDescr>
being deprecated.

With best regards,
