During review and restructuring of scheme parts in RailML the question was raised, whether the
element "trainType" in rollingstock is used by anybody.
It was originally proposed by Mr. Kawabata in 2003 for storing additional information about the
possible use of the formation, i.e. express train, regional train, IC etc. However, this is is just
an addon and may be not considered for the operation itself.

Currently the timetable provides the possibility to store the category of each train as it is
operated. Subsequently the additional info in rollingstock, which can differ (xsd:string) from the
information in timetable, can be omitted at all.

Please give short notice when your are using the "trainType" element in rollingstock. An explanation
of your use case would be highly appreciated.

Mit freundlichen Grüßen/Best regards,
Jörg von Lingen
