|Documentation||An operational train variant is a specific variant of a train that is operated in this way on all operating days indicated by the provided validity. It is expected that the validities of all operational train variants within an operational train do not overlap. The difference between one variant and the next of an operational train is that the trains path may differ to some degree.|

This means that the resulting arrival and departure times of the individual base itinerary points are calculated by adding the offset of the itinerary AND the offset of the operational train variant to them. Of course the offset may also be negative. (optional;

Aspects that are only relevant with respect to one of several parents should be explained exclusively in the documentation of the respective parent element.

An <operationalTrainVariant> is specific for a certain day. It shall not be used to describe different alternative train paths of a microscopic infrastructure model a train may go on a certain day, e.g. use track A or B to get from OP 1 to OP 2.
