Dear railML-community,

I would like to point your attention towards the forum posting for missing load attribute in RS:vehicle
https://www.railml.org/forum/index.php?t=msg&th=767& start=0&

In this context we would like to ask the TT community to suggest a clearer definition of the three attributes (bellow with today's wiki definitions):

@weight: the real weight of the formation while in use, including any possible engine(s)
@load: (introduced with version 2.1) the real load of the formation while in use, excluding any possible engine(s)
@timetableLoad: (introduced with version 2.1) planned load according to the timetable, excluding any possible engine(s)

What is meant with "real"? How do the definitions relate to <formation>/<vehicle> @bruttoWeight, @nettoWeight and @tareWeight?

Please see attached illustration in RS forum posting, where I try to illustrate the definitions.
What does the TT community think? Any thoughts are much appreciated.

Kind regards

Torben Brand

Dear Torben,

I found this trac ticket from the introduction of timetableLoad: https://trac.railml.org/ticket/59 (in German)

And this old related thread: https://www.railml.org/forum/index.php?t=msg&goto=784
