railML2.4nor – Norway’s Railway Data Exchange Format

railML® – Railway Markup Language – is an open-source XML based data exchange format, which shall enable an easy communication of heterogenous railway applications.

railML is developed by railML.org, a registered association in Germany since 2002, in close cooperation with all interested institutions and businesses of the railway sector across Europe. 

railML2.4nor uses railML2.4 as a basis and adds extensions to meet Norwegian requirements. It is no competing standard to railML2.4 but is the Norwegian usage of railML2.4 in addition to Norwegian extensions. It shall serve as a data exchange format for the Norwegian railway sector from 2019 onwards. 

In the following the documentation of the railML2.4nor infrastructure, rolling stock and timetable scheme are available for download. They consist of the following documents: 

  • railML2.4nor schema extension XSDs
  • PDF documents explaining general modelling rules and element specific definitions and extensions
  • Excel sheets containing all elements, attributes and values used in the Norwegian railway sector
