Proposed features/Train protection systems
|Train protection systems|
|Status:||Draft (under way)|
|Tagging:||railway:train_protection_name, e.g. railway:pzb, railway:kvb, railway:tpws, ..=true, false, level (in case of ETCS)|
|Definition:||Attempt to create a uniform tagging system to map railway lines equipped with some kind of train protection system|
|Rendered as:||not on OSM - as overlay on third party map (preferrably ITO Maps)|
In most countries, railway lines are equipped with some kind of train protection system to prevent signals being passed at danger, overspeeding at points/switches, spacing between trains.
The basic idea is recycled from the detailed railway network proposal. From my point of view, this proposal was way too detailed, as there are better maps for each piece of railway equipment (like the German Railway maps of each station or Betriebsstelle). It is however more useful to get an overview which lines or line sections are equipped with a certain railway protection system, instead of just putting that one country uses a system throughout. This is not always true, even in Germany where the Magdeburg-Thale line (where the Hordorf crash occurred in 2011) was not fully equipped with PZB until after the crash !
The goal of this proposal is to create or to agree on a uniform tagging standard for such systems.
|Country||System abbreviation||Complete name||Usage||Tag name||Tag value|
|PZB / PZB90 / Indusi||Punktförmige Zugbeeinflussung||All main lines on the German and Austrian railway network||railway:pzb||true/false|
|LZB||Linienzugbeeinflussung||Overlay-system for high-speed running (v>160 km/h) on mixed-traffic lines, or main system on high-speed (v>230 km/h) lines||railway:lzb||true/false|
|France||KVB||Contrôle de vitesse par balises||All (electrified) main lines in France, except high-speed lines||railway:kvb||true/false|
|TVM (300 and 430)||Transmission voie-machine||High-speed lines in France, or connected to France (Eurotunnel, High Speed 1, Line 1 in Belgium, First HSL of South Korea was of French design)||railway:tvm||300 or 430|
|Crocodile / Memor||n/a||All main lines in Belgium, also in France but mostly obsolete due to the introduction of either KVB (France) or TBL1+/ETCS (Belgium)||railway:crocodile||true/false|
|Netherlands||ATB (EG/NG)||Automatische Treinbeïnvloeding (Eerste Generatie/Nieuwe Generatie)||All main lines in the Netherlands are equipped with the first-generation EG-system. A few lines were equipped with the next-generation system NG, which is incompatible with the former. ATB-NG is no longer actively deployed, and will be replaced by ETCS.||railway:atb||eg/ng ? (TBD)|
|United Kingdom||AWS||Automatic Warning System||All main lines in the United Kingdom||railway:aws||true/false|
|United Kingdom||TPWS||Train Protection and Warning System||Additional system to mitigate signals passed at danger||railway:tpws||true/false|
|ATC (aka ATC-2)||Automatic Train Control||?||railway:atc||true/false|
|Denmark||ATC (aka ZUB123)||Automatic Train Control||?||railway:atc||true/false|
|Switzerland||Integra-Signum||n/a||All Swiss main lines of SBB-CFF-FFS (narrow gauge operators use another system)||railway:integra or railway:signum (TBD) ?||TBD|
|Spain||ASFA||Anuncio de Señales y Frenado Automático||All classic rail lines in Spain||railway:asfa||TBD|
|Europe||ETCS||European Train Control System||New European system whose aim is to replace the incompatible train protection systems in each member state with a uniform system. Available in different levels, each using other techniques to track the train's movement authority (Level 1: by electro-mechanical beacons, Levels 2 and 3: by radio/GSM-R).||railway:etcs||TBD|
