I am a new user working for Hitachi Rail STS, in particular I am part of the SW development pool dealing with system integration and how railML can support our workflow, nice to meet you all.

While working on the implementation of <StoppingPlace> a few questions came to mind and I was hoping that somebody may be able to help.

Coming also from a quick search on the forum for previous questions, there seems to be some possible overlap between <StoppingPlace> itself and both <PlatformEdge> (which it actually refers to via <aStoppingPlace>@PlatformEdgeRef) and an <OperationalPoint> with an <OpOperation>@operationalType=="StoppingPoint" child.

What is the difference, from a semantic point of view, among the three objects: <PlatformEdge>, <StoppingPlace>, <OperationalPoint>@operationalType=="StoppingPoint" and when do they need to be used? Are there different use cases for the above elements? Which would be the more general case?

Thanks and best regards,
Luca Carbone
