This European Standard specifies basic requirements for the braking of trains hauled by locomotives:
-   For trains hauled by locomotives and intended for use in general operation each vehicle is fitted with the traditional brake system with a brake pipe compatible with the UIC brake system.
NOTE   This ensures technical compatibility of the brake function between vehicles of various origins in a train (see 5.4).
-   For trains hauled by locomotives and intended for use in fixed or predefined formation, the requirements on the vehicle and the train are necessary. In the case of a UIC brake system, this standard applies; if not, the EN 16185 series or the EN 15734 series applies.
If concerned, the UIC brake architecture described in this standard (see 5.4) can be used for brakes for multiple unit train and high speed trains and urban rail described in the EN 13452 series, the EN 16185 series and the EN 15734 series.
This European Standard also takes into account electrical and electronic control functions and additional brake systems like dynamic brakes and adhesion independent brakes.
The brake system requirements, which are specific for on-track machines are set out in EN 14033 1.
This European Standard does not apply to Urban Rail rolling stock braking system, which is specified by EN 13452 1.

1.1   General
This document specifies the technical requirements to minimize the specific railway hazards of self-propelled road-rail machines - henceforward referred to as machines - and associated equipment, intended for use on urban rail. These hazards can arise during the commissioning, the operation and the maintenance of machines when carried out in accordance with the specification given by the manufacturer or his authorized representative. Where a machine is designed and intended for use on mainline and urban rail, the machine will comply with the most onerous conditions of FprEN 15746-1 and FprEN 15746-4. In all cases the machine will comply with the requirements set out in FprEN 15746-2.
The requirements in this document amend those in FprEN 15746-1 as required for the use of the machine on urban railways.
This document does not apply to the following:
-   the requirements for quality of the work or performance of the machine;
-   the specific requirements established by the machine operator for the use of machines, which will be the subject of negotiation between the manufacturer and the Urban Rail Manager;
-   moving and working while not on rails;
-   separate machines temporarily mounted on machines and associated equipment.
This document does not establish the additional requirements for the following:
-   operation subject to special rules, e.g. potentially explosive atmospheres;
-   hazards due to natural causes, e.g. earthquake, lightning, flooding;
-   working methods;
-   operation in severe working conditions requiring special measures, e.g. extreme environmental conditions such as: freezing temperatures, high temperatures, corrosive environments, tropical environments, contaminating environments, strong magnetic fields;
-   hazards occurring when used to handle suspended loads which may swing freely.
For a road-rail machine it is assumed that an EU road permissible host vehicle will offer an accepted safety level for its designed basic functions before conversion. Unless explicitly stated otherwise in a particular clause this specific aspect is not dealt with in this European Standard.
Other track construction and maintenance machines used on railway tracks are dealt with in other European Standards, see Annex B.
1.2   Scope of urban rail
Urban rail systems cover Urban Guided Transport systems (UGT) and might include other rail systems excluded from the scope of the Interoperability Directive 2008/57/EC (Article 1.3 (a) and (b)).
Urban Guided Transport systems (UGT), which cover metro, tram and light rail, are defined as public transport systems permanently guided at least by one rail, intended for the operation of local, urban and suburban passenger services with self-propelled vehicles and operated either segregated or not from general road and pedestrian traffic.
Categories of urban rail systems include:
-   (I) Metros: UGT systems operated on their own right of way and segregated from general road and pedestrian traffic. They are consequently designed for operations in tunnel, viaducts or on surface level but with physical separation in such a way that inadvertent access is not possible. In different parts of the world, Metro systems are also known as the underground, the subway or the tube. Rail systems with specific construction issues operating on a segregated guideway (e.g. monorail, rack railways) are also treated as Metros as long as they are designated as part of the urban public transport network.
-   (II) Trams: UGT systems not segregated from general road and pedestrian traffic, which share their right of way with general road and/or pedestrian traffic and are therefore embedded in their relevant national road traffic legislation (highway codes and specific adaptations).

1.1   General
This document deals with the technical requirements to minimize the specific railway hazards of self-propelled road-rail machines -henceforward referred to as machines - and associated equipment, which can arise during the commissioning, operation and maintenance of the machines when carried out in accordance with the specification given by the manufacturer or his authorized representative.
These risks are normally common regardless of the track gauge.  However, additional requirements can apply for travelling and working on infrastructures with narrow gauge or broad gauge lines, railways utilizing other than adhesion between the rail and rail wheels and underground infrastructures.
This document is also applicable for machines and associated equipment that in working configuration are partly supported on the ballast or the formation. Such machines are capable of independent self-propelled movement on the ground.
This document does not apply to the following:
-   the requirements for quality of the work or performance of the machine;
-   the specific requirements established by the machine operator for the use of machines, which will be the subject of negotiation between the manufacturer and the Infrastructure Manager;
-   moving and working while not on rails;
-   separate machines temporarily mounted on machines and associated equipment;
-   demountable machines as defined in 3.2;
-   trailers as defined in 3.3, including road-rail trailers.
Vehicles which are not track-guided themselves but have attachments that are track-guided are not road-rail machines.
The requirements within this document are amended and added to by the requirements in FprEN 15746-4 for machines designed and intended to use urban rail.
This document does not establish the additional requirements for the following:
-   operation subject to special rules, e.g. potentially explosive atmospheres;
-   hazards due to natural causes, e.g. earthquake, lightning, flooding;
-   working methods;
-   operation in severe working conditions requiring special measures, e.g. work in tunnels or in cuttings, extreme environmental conditions such as: freezing temperatures, high temperatures, corrosive environments, tropical environments, contaminating environments, strong magnetic fields;
-   hazards due to errors in software;
-   hazards occurring when used to handle suspended loads which may swing freely.
For a road-rail machine it is assumed that an EU road permissible host vehicle will offer an accepted safety level for its designed basic functions before conversion. Unless explicitly stated otherwise in a particular clause this specific aspect is not dealt with in this European Standard.
Other track construction and maintenance machines used on railway tracks are dealt with in other European Standards, see Annex F.

1.1   General
This document deals with the technical requirements to minimize the specific railway hazards of self-propelled road-rail machines, as defined in FprEN 15746-1:2019, 3.1, henceforward referred to as machines, when designed and intended for running on European railways within the scope of European Directive 2007/58/EC.
The running mode is an option designed by the manufacturer which permits the use of the machine on a specified railway infrastructure without the need for special operational rules.
NOTE 1   The use of special track safety equipment (i.e. part of automatic train protection systems) does not necessarily mean that the machine has a running mode; some Infrastructure Managers use such equipment as means of protection for machines in travelling and/or working modes.
NOTE 2   This document is written for 1 435 mm nominal track gauge, special requirements can apply for running on infrastructures with narrow gauge or broad gauge lines.
Urban rail and railways utilizing other than adhesion between the rail and wheels are not included in this document.
This document does not apply to the following:
-   the specific requirements established by the machine operator for the use of machines, which will be the subject of negotiation between the manufacturer and the Infrastructure Manager;
-   travelling and working both on and off rails;
-   running on urban rail.
For a road-rail machine it is assumed that an EU road permissible host vehicle will offer an accepted safety level for its designed basic functions before conversion. Unless explicitly stated otherwise in a particular clause this specific aspect is not dealt with in this European Standard.

This document specifies the assessment of Fire Containment and Control Systems (FCCS) and associated fire detection systems for railway vehicles as an alternative to the fire barriers specified in EN 45545-3.
This document describes:
- assessment of installation and capability of fire detection system;
- assessment of interaction between fire detection system and FCCS;
- application and limitations of assessment process (mock-up or real scale test).
This document considers any additional assessment requirements when vehicle designs which have already been assessed as acceptable to this document are modified, or when new design variants, which have an impact on FCCS, are made which are based on an existing design.
This document is applicable to any railway vehicle, where fire detection systems and/or Fire Control and Containment Systems are used.
This document defines performance requirements and verification and validation requirements for systems whose objective is to detect and control or contain the effect of fire in order to create a protected area within the railway vehicle until passengers and staff can be evacuated from the railway vehicle. It is additionally assumed that the new railway vehicles comply with EN 45545-2 (material properties) and EN 45545-4 (design rules) in order to achieve the safety requirements defined in EN 45545.

For the purpose of demonstrating compatibility between rolling stock and axle counter detectors, this document defines the interference limits and evaluation methods to verify rolling stock emissions. Wheel sensors and crossing loops are not covered by this document.
This document gives recommended individual limits to be applied to establish compatibility between RST and all selected types of axle counter detectors, including any covered by national standards.
The list of selected types of axle counters and their limits for compatibility are drawn on the basis of established performance criteria. It is expected that the trend for newly signalled interoperable lines will be fitted with types that meet the compatibility limits published in the TSI CCS Interfaces Document (ERA/ERTMS/033281).
To ensure adequate operational availability, it is essential that the rolling stock complies with the defined limits; otherwise, the established availability of the valid output function of axle counter detectors may be compromised.
NOTE   The influences from metal parts or inductively coupled resonant circuits on the vehicle, eddy current brakes or magnetic brakes, are not covered by this document but are considered on the basis of national technical specifications.

In addition to the general requirements of IEC 60077-2, this part of IEC 60077 gives rules for
AC circuit-breakers, the main contacts of which are connected to AC overhead contact lines;
the nominal voltage of these circuits being in accordance with IEC 60850.
This document, together with IEC 60077-2, states specifically:
a) the characteristics of the circuit-breakers;
b) the service conditions with which circuit-breakers comply with reference to:
– operation and behaviour in normal service;
– operation and behaviour in short-circuit;
– dielectric properties;
c) the tests for confirming the compliance of the components with the characteristics under
the service conditions and the methods to be adopted for these tests;
d) the information to be marked on, or given with the circuit-breaker.
NOTE 1 Circuit-breakers which are dealt with in this document can be provided with devices for automatic
opening under pre-determined conditions other than those of overcurrent, for example, undervoltage and reversal
of power flow direction. This document does not deal with the verification of operation under such predetermined
conditions.
NOTE 2 The incorporation of electronic components or electronic sub-assemblies into electrotechnical components
is now common practice.
Although this document is not applicable to electronic equipment, the presence of electronic components does not
provide a reason to exclude such electrotechnical components from the scope.
Electronic sub-assemblies included in the circuit-breakers comply with the relevant standard for electronics
(IEC 60571).
NOTE 3 Certain of these rules, after agreement between the user and the manufacturer, are used for
electrotechnical components installed on vehicles other than rail rolling stock such as mine locomotives,
trolleybuses, etc. In this case, particular additional requirements can be necessary.
This document does not cover industrial circuit-breakers which comply with IEC 62271-100.
For these, in order to ensure satisfactory operation, this document is used to specify only the
particular requirements for rolling stock. In such cases, a specific document states the
additional requirements with which the industrial circuit-breakers comply, for example:
– either to be adapted (e.g. for control voltage, environmental conditions, etc.);
– or to be installed and used so that they do not have to endure specific rolling stock
conditions;
– or to be additionally tested to prove that these components can withstand satisfactorily the
rolling stock conditions.

This European Standard applies to new designs of locomotives and passenger carrying rolling stock as defined in categories C-I to C-IV of Clause 4 taking into consideration the recommendations given in Annex E on the application of the standard (migration rule). It is intended to protect vehicle occupants, through the preservation of structural integrity, and does not extend to other railway employees and customers who are not in vehicles, or to third parties. The specified requirements relate to the technical and operational conditions of use that prevail in the CEN member countries. The design of new vehicles for use in passenger trains is based on operations with compatible rolling stock that also meet this standard. It is recognised that operational requirements will require new crashworthy and existing non-crashworthy vehicles to exist in the same train unit but such combinations of vehicles are not required to comply with this European Standard.
The requirements apply to the vehicle body, and to those mechanical elements directly associated with it that may be used to absorb energy in a collision, such as couplers, buffing systems etc. They do not cover the safety features of doors, windows, system components or interior features except for specific issues relating to the preservation of survival space.
The requirements do not cover all possible accident scenarios but provide a level of crashworthiness that will reduce the consequences of an accident, when the active safety measures have been inadequate. The requirement is to provide a level of protection by addressing the most common types of collision that cause injuries and fatalities.
The applicable design collision scenarios, and suitable parameters for normal European operations, are given in Clause 5. Annex A gives additional information regarding the derivation of the scenarios and describes situations when they may need to be modified and the processes that should then be followed.

The main purpose of this standard is the support of rolling stock procurement, especially in light of life cycle cost (LCC) assessment.
This European Standard is applicable to the specification and verification of energy consumption of railway rolling stock. It establishes a criterion for the energy consumption of rolling stock to calculate the total net energy consumed, either at current collector or from the fuel tank, over a predefined service profile, in order to assure that the results are directly comparable or representative of the real operation of the train. For this purpose, this document takes into account the energy consumed and regenerated by the rolling stock.
This European Standard provides the framework that gives guidance on the generation of comparable energy performance values for trains and locomotives on a common basis and thereby supports benchmarking and improvement of the energy efficiency of rail vehicles.
This European Standard does not cover specification for comparison of energy consumption with other modes of transportation, or even for comparison between diesel and electric traction, covering only the energy consumption of the railway rolling stock itself.

This document specifies requirements for, and constructions and dimensions of, multicore and multipair cables rated voltage U0/U: 300/500 V, of the following types: - unscreened, sheathed for either exposed or protected wiring (0,5 mm2 to 2,5 mm2, number of cores from 2 to 48); - screened, sheathed for either exposed or protected wiring (0,5 mm2 to 2,5 mm2, number of cores from 2 to 8); - unscreened, sheathed for either exposed or protected wiring (0,5 mm2 to 1,5 mm2, number of screened pairs of cores from 2 to 7). - screened, sheathed for either exposed or protected wiring (0,5 mm2 to 1,5 mm2, number of unscreened pairs of cores from 2 to 7). All cables have stranded tinned copper conductors, halogen-free, thin wall thickness insulation and standard wall thickness sheath. Cable types are specified for use in exposed situations (Class E), and for protected situations (Class P). They are for use in railway rolling stock as fixed wiring or wiring where limited flexing in operation is encountered. These cables are rated for occasional thermal stresses causing ageing equivalent to continuous operational life at a temperature of 90 °C. For standard cables this is determined by the acceptance test defined in EN 50305, using accelerated long-term (5 000 h) thermal ageing indicating a 110 °C/20 000 h temperature index. If the customer were to require lifetime predictions this would be demonstrated based on the temperature index of the product as supplied by the manufacturer. The maximum temperature for short circuit conditions is 160 °C based on duration of 5 s. Under fire conditions the cables exhibit special performance characteristics in respect of maximum permissible flame propagation (flame spread) and maximum permissible emission of smoke and toxic gases. These requirements are specified to permit the cables to satisfy Hazard Level 3 of EN 45545 1 and EN 45545 2. EN 50306 4:2020 is expected to be used in conjunction with EN 50306-1:2020, General requirements, EN 50306-2:2020, Single core cables, and EN 50306-3:2020, Single core and multicore cables.

This document specifies a calculation method of recyclability and recoverability rates for rolling stock. The method defined in this document applies to the design of new rolling stock. However, it can be applied to other existing rolling stock depending on available information. If calculation of recyclability or recoverability is applied to separate parts and/or products used in rolling stock and a specific calculation standard or method exists for the part and/or product, such standard or method can be applied, if relevant. This calculation method is applicable regardless of any geographical concern. This calculation method is applicable to any stage of life cycle of rolling stock. The calculated recyclability and recoverability rates are valid at the point of delivering the rolling stock products or equipment. Future recycling technologies or predicted trends with respect to the recycling industry are excluded from any consideration for this calculation method. This calculation method considers the four main treatment processes, which are reuse, recycling, energy recovery and disposal (Figure 1). Process losses of recycling are treated in the disposal stage. The residue substances of the energy recovery stage (mostly ash and slag) and the residue of the incineration process of the disposal stage are most likely landfilled.
