loading gauges, active train protection systems, active tilting
systems but also temporary speed restrictions with its temporal and

than a train part needs. That's the same case as with the ocps defined
in the infrastructure branch.
Please have a look at the proposal in the Trac ticket if you are
interested in this enhancement. It seems that we may implement it any
Any hints, questions, remarks, comments, +/-1, welcome. :-)
