PLANNING FOR SIGNALLING SYSTEMS ON NEW RAILWAY ROUTES

SIGNALTECHNISCHE PLANUNGEN AUF NEUBAUSTRECKEN

Whereas the existing routes on the DB are secured by a system of fixed home and distant signals, the new routes are to have signals with simplified indications. With this so-called Sk system, only a light point is actuated. Signalling of the permitted speed is by numbers on advance and main speed indicators. A speed once shown continues to apply until a change is signalled. The intermittent automatic train-running control system will continue to be used for train speeds of up to 160 km/h, while for higher speeds integrated linear train control in accordance with the recommendations of the ORE expert committee A 46 will be employed. If the latter system fails, the train will be automatically braked to 160 km/h, and the automatic train-running control system will take over. A signal cabin is necessary at each overtaking station. The diverting and junction points only have a local signal cabin when the distance from the signals and switches to the next signal cabin is more than 6.5 km. These signal cabins will be unmanned and will be remote-controlled from a centralized control point.
