Autoexport from the XML-Schema for element IL:endOfTrack of railML® version 3.2
Documentation The contained limit in the network known to the interlocking system.
The "End of Track" is used for the interlocking system to mark a functional limit. It might be a physical end or just a end of supervision for the interlocking system.

Elements may have different parent elements. As a consequence they may be used in different contexts.
Please, consider this as well as a user of this wiki as when developing this documentation further.
Aspects that are only relevant with respect to one of several parents should be explained exclusively in the documentation of the respective parent element.

This element does not appear in railML® 3.1 within the IL subschema. It is available only in railML® 3.2. Do not hesitate to contact for further questions.

Changes 3.1→3.2

Additional Information

The endOfTrack is a functional element for use in an interlocking logic as end of any route, which represents the limit of control. It might be a physicalEnd or the endOfSupervision. The first one is related to a <bufferStop> which marks the physical end of a track. The latter one is related to the last <trainDetectionElement> within this track where beyond is no train detection at all like the sidings of industrial tracks.

  • @elementNumber - A positive integer number unique within one <signalBox> to index the element in internal lists of engineering data.
  • @id - The unique identifier used to reference this element within railML.
  • @realisation - The type of limit.
    • endOfSupervision - The limit is the transition to an unspervised track area defined by an <trainDetectionElement>.
    • physicalEnd - The limit is a physical end of track defined by a {{tag|IS|bufferStop}.
