Dear all,

for the route overlap definition, a position is required for a switch/derailer/crossing in an overlap.

But sometimes this position is not available, because a) the overlap ends before the heart or b) does not matter.

Using only the TvdSection is not a solution, because it could include several switches/derailers/crosings, which would then be to much.

<overlap id="IL_FMkw4WGpByf8V0i0u539i9" length="55">
<designator register="_costId" entry="Overlap:BGS_MR#1564"/>
<relatedSwitchAndPosition inPosition="right">
<refersToSwitch ref="IL_Z8wATeoLQQL7NLmHuC2c8Ca"/>
<hasTvdSection ref="TVD_Z8wATeoLQQL7NLmHuC2c8Ca"/>

So the parameter "inPosition" shall become either optional or provide an additional option for these cases.

Best regards,

Dear all,

it sounds reasonable to have the option to define
switch/derailer/crossing but saying the particular position does not
matter. In order to have a clear solution for general use I suggest to
extend the list of possible values for @inPosition by the value
