International railway networks are an important means for passenger and freight transport. Railway software systems often must be supported and maintained for decades. Different systems cover different aspects such as train protection, signalling, infrastructure hardware and software. Usage of different standards and regulations, both international (e.g., European Train Control System) and national, for these aspects leads to a large number of incompatible systems.
