Technical Visit with ERTMS on high speed trains

  • Europe

The technical visit, organised by ADIF and RENFE, on 31 March was a great success.
Two high-speed trains with ERTMS cab signals transmitted on to monitors in each carriage departed from Malaga train station carrying 600 people for a live demonstration of ERTMS on the high-speed line section between Malaga and Cordoba. Among others ADIF and RENFE showed the functioning of the interface between ERTMS and conventional signalling. Exhibitions of rolling stock and infrastructure related equipment in the stations of Malaga and Cordoba gave additional in-sights to the participants.
