We are pleased to announce the first official release of the EULYNX signalling engineering data model!

This model has been designed by the EULYNX Data Preparation cluster to improve the exchange of signalling data between IM’s and signalling industry. Seamless automated exchange of information will accelerate (re-)signalling work as engineering information is no longer sourced from a mosaic of plans and documents but from a structured set of data.

Please refer to the EULYNX DataPrep pages for details, deliverables, and explanations how EULYNX DataPrep will contribute to digital continuity in the railway signalling business.

The EULYNX Data Preparation cluster will continue to enrich and update the model following national and international developments. Furthermore, testing and data conversion are on the agenda. New releases are planned every half-year. We look forward to your feedback and questions under This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Network Rail organised a follow up webinar on the Target 190plus R&D programme, the objective of which is to reduce the cost of ETCS signalling infrastructure to £190k per signalling equivalent unit. 

The slides from the webinar are available pdf here (5.53 MB)

The webinar recordings are available on following links: Day 1 / Day 2

RCA is an initiative driven by railways organized in ERTMS Users Group and EULYNX, based on the RCA White Paper published in summer 2018. The RCA initiative works on a trackside reference architecture aiming for a substantial improvement in cost, capacity, safety, reliability of the CCS system.

For easier understanding on what RCA is and what has been achieved so far, dedicated onboarding pages have been created and available through this link:

Bane NOR is moving forward in implementing its national ERTMS Programme. In the spring of 2020, the technology was deployed on the Roa – Hønefoss line to provide a “live” test environment. To this end, the ERTMS Test Lab and ERTMS Training centre has been opened. Norway’s first railway line equipped with ERTMS Level 2 Baseline 3 will open in October 2022. Bane NOR will comply with the EULYNX specification for its standardized signalling system interfaces. In the autumn of 2020, Bane NOR has as the first Infrastructure Manager completed the first successful implementation of the EULYNX SCI-CC (TMS-RBC/IL) interface, between two different suppliers Siemens (RBC/IL) and Thales (TMS).
