Stopping places and platform edges
In railML 3.1, a can be linked with only one using attribute @platformEdgeRef.
In the railML ITMS use case working group it has been concluded that a stopping place can be linked with more than one platform edge. Therefore, the model shall be adapted for railML 3.2.
A stopping place marks the position on the track where the train shall stop.
A platform edge is the interface between passenger train and station.
