Dear all,

the wiki (https://wiki.railml.org/index.php?title=RS:propulsion) currently does
not contain a clear description of the enumeration values. Not in every case it
is really obvious. The technology development may also contribute in some more
variants.

powerType - the source of energy for propulsion of the vehicle
Currently we have [electric, diesel, steam] but what about new forms like
hybrids, fuel cell, battery etc?

transmission - the way to transmit and adjust the power to the drive
Currently we have [electric, hydraulic, mechanical]. Are there any other ways of
transmission?
Although not described in the wiki "hydraulic" stands for hydrodynamic and
hydrostatic transmission. The latter one is not really used for locomotive
traction why a discrimination would thought not necessary.

controlType - the way to control the power output of the traction drive
Currently we have [camshaftControl, contactorControl, rectifier,
thyristorControl]. Are there any other ways of control?
