Within the Shift2Rail programme the LinX4Rail project was set up to develop and promote a sectorial common Functional Railway System Architecture. This activity will be supported by a widely adopted Shift2Rail Conceptual Data Model (CDM). The ambition of LinX4Rail is to achieve an overall system architecture for the railway system and a strategy for implementation of future technical breakthroughs. 

RCA supports this idea and contributes by an active exchange and collaboration. RCA brings in its achievements for the CCS architecture, which is expected to be the core of the Functional Railway System Architecture.

We are pleased to announce the next update of RCA. RCA Gamma is an update taking into account feedback from railways, suppliers and sector organizations. RCA Gamma provides new topics and reorganizes the existing material to be able to move to model-based specifications.

New topics include: Migration with RCA, Principles of the Safety Logic, Business case of RCA for IMs, LSL (Enhanced L3, Supervision, Localisation) and many others (for more detail, check the Release Notes). The first “development snapshots” of the model-based specifications will be made available starting March 2020.

The Reference CCS Architecture (RCA) Strategy Group, representing ERTMS Users Group and EULYNX, and the UNIFE ERTMS  Steering Committee shared their views about the issues which need to be addressed in the context of a future Control Command Signalling (CCS) Framework. A statement has been prepared which summarizes the view shared by these two Parties, as well as elements where they must deepen their joint understanding.
