Dear all,

after the very basic implementation of the signaling element <lock> in railML 2.4 (see [1]), it has been suggested to extend it with upcoming version railML 2.5.

In particular, three modifications are proposed in Trac ticket #428 [2]:
* new attribute @positionAtTrack to describe the location of the lock left or right of the track
* new attribute @controllerRef to link the lock with the controller from where it is controlled
* new attribute @keyStorageRef to link the lock with the OCP where the key is stored in case it is not inserted in the lock.

Further, the question about "types of locks" remains: until further generalization of lock types enabling the introduction of an enumeration attribute, it is suggested to use the free text attribute @description for it.

Are there any objections against that railML 2.5 proposal?
