Accessing the Route Book

As the Hungarian government finally implemented the technical specification of interoperability relating to the subsystem “Traffic Operation and Management” of the trans-European conventional rail system (OPE TSI) and the decree of the Secretary of Transport entered into force on 1st March, 2011, using the Route Book is mandatory for all Railway Undertakings.

According to the section 4.2.1.2.2. of the OPE TSI:

Drivers must be provided with a description of the lines and the associated lineside equipment for the lines over which they will operate and relevant to the driving task. Such information must be set out in a single document called the “Route Book” (which can either be a traditional document or computer based).

Be aware that if your RU carries out duty regarding to cross-border services and your train drivers cross the Hungarian border, even to the first station in Hungary, they must have the relevant Route Book.
