Implementation of electronic train order working on the NSW country regional network

The Train Management and Control System (TMACS) software suite used for train order working on the NSW Country Regional Network (CRN) has been enhanced with digital “Electronic Authorities” to provide improvements to safe-working processes and operating efficiencies for both train and network operations. TMACS now provides SIL-2 Electronic Authorities as an encrypted data message directly into a locomotive cabin using the In-Cabin Equipment (ICE) train radio system. This paper discusses the technical and organisational challenges for introducing Electronic Authorities into a vertically-separated rail environment.
