This paper presents a train control system for branch lines which are operated by radio-based operational train control. The train control system presented herein represents a low cost solution which improves safety, increases ease of operation. It is based on data radio communication between the central computer, which is located in the dispatcher’s office and trains (each train is equipped with an on-board computer), cab signalling in the trains, and autonomous determination of train location using GPS and an odometer. In Austria this system is in full operation on several lines with a total length of appr. 90 km.
