Railway applications - Requirements for ERTMS Trackside Boards
The standard defines requirements to ensure the following.
The driver must be able to observe signals and trackside boards, and they must be observable by the driver from his normal driving position.
Trackside markers, signs and information boards must be designed in such a consistent way to facilitate this.
Issues that must be taken into account shall include:
• that they are suitably sited so that train headlights allow the driver to read the information,
• suitability and intensity of lighting, where required to illuminate the information,
• where retro-reflectivity is employed, the reflective properties of the material used are in compliance with appropriate specifications and the signs are fabricated so that train front lights easily allow the driver to read the information.

EN 16494:2015 (E) 3 Foreword This document (EN 16494:2015) has been prepared by Technical Committee CEN/TC 256 “Railway applications”, the secretariat of which is held by DIN. This European Standard shall be given the status of a national standard, either by publication of an identical text or by endorsement, at the latest by October 2015 and conflicting national standards shall be withdrawn at the latest by October 2015. Attention is drawn to the possibility that some of the elements of this document may be the subject of patent rights. CEN [and/or CENELEC] shall not be held responsible for identifying any or all such patent rights. This document has been prepared under a mandate given to CEN by the European Commission and the European Free Trade Association, and supports essential requirements of EU Directive(s). For relationship with EU Directive(s), see informative Annex ZA, which is an integral part of this document. According to the CEN-CENELEC Internal Regulations, the national standards organizations of the following countries are bound to implement this European Standard: Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey and the United Kingdom.

EN 16494:2015 (E) 4 Introduction This European Standard was produced for the specification and harmonization of a specific set of ERTMS trackside boards to support ETCS and GSM-R operations. The existing DMI symbols within the scope of this European Standard were considered for the trackside board designs but were found to be unreadable due to complexity of the designs. For this reason the abstract designs shown in Table 1 were developed. This European Standard contains colour images for indicational purposes only. The colours are not representative of the specification. The drawings shown in Table 1 and Table 2 are not to scale. SIST EN 16494:2015
EN 16494:2015 (E) 5 1 Scope This European Standard defines the requirements for the provision, visibility, readability, maintenance and testing of a specific set of ERTMS trackside boards associated with the following DMI and ETCS track conditions: • ETCS stop marker; • ETCS location marker, the trackside ETCS signal to identify a specific location on the line; • level transition, corresponding to transitions between ETCS levels; • lower pantograph; • pantograph lowered; • raise pantograph; • neutral section announcement; • neutral section; • end of neutral section; • GSM-R network border marker. This European Standard includes the arrangement of the boards and their interface with existing systems (track, cab design including cab sight lines, visibility by the driver and train head lamps). NOTE 1 The ETCS and GSM-R signs are needed when the information normally associated with the DMI symbols is provided at the trackside. NOTE 2 The application of ERTMS trackside boards is not within the scope of this standard. Sighting requirements are not included within the scope of this standard. Sighting requirements for the boards may be different according to their level of authority: marker boards ‘End of Authority’ need to be treated with the same level of authority as a signal and may have enhanced sighting requirements; the remaining boards may be sighted as generic signage sighting rules. The sighting process needs to be implemented in accordance with national safety rules. 2 Normative references The following documents, in whole or in part, are normatively referenced in this document and are indispensable for its application.
