Dear all,

one topic recently discussed in the infrastructure subgroup was whether the information regarding the number and other additional properties (i.e. the colour) of the signal-lights should be added to the signalIS element (for example to define base types of signals, i.e. two-lights main signal, three-lights main signal etc.)
Another possibilty would be to add the same information to the signalIL element.
The third option would be not to add anything at all.

Which option would you prefer?

Thanks for your answer,

f.

Dear Fabiana,

the issue of basic signal types is probably very dependent on the infrastructure manager.

In infrastructure itself it doesn't really matter how much lamps a signal has. But the engineering of interlockings need
to know which lamps any signal has, related to signal aspect and power characteristics. Therefore I had mentioned this
topic already in the IL tutorial.
"The mapping between the aspect and the activated lamps might be done with another genericType but this is currently not
yet implemented."
Making such base types with mapping to aspects in IL/specificInfrastructureManager/genericTypes it would be the best to
number the lamps of a signal from top to down and from left to right to have a common scheme of addressing them.

However, currently no one has yet asked for such information in railML.


Regards,
Jörg von Lingen - Interlocking Coordinator
