Retrofitting Rolling Stock with ETCS

The European Train Control System has been rolled out on railways across Europe for over a decade. Yet there is still legacy rolling stock that hasn’t been equipped with ETCS components and therefore cannot operate with the European Rail Traffic Management System. That’s where retrofitting comes in.  

In our ETCS flyer, discover the practical and safety impacts of retrofitting rolling stock with ETCS, including: 

  • How to make the process more efficient 
  • The importance of moving rolling stock communications from the legacy system to ETCS 
  • Why the Common Safety Method for Risk Evaluation and Assessment needs to be carried out 
  • The wider software implications of upgrading rolling stock with ETCS
