Article about the use of RailSys at the SNCF Transilien

Evaluation of the robustness of transport plans with RailSys

The rail network of Ile-de-France is one of the busiest in the world. Half of French SNCF Transilien’s traffic is on these 10% of the French rail network. In order to be able to offer a high-quality transport service despite the high capacity utilization, SNCF relies on RailSys.


With extensive developments of various components, RailSys is operating at SNCF Transilien under the name DENFERT in order to be able to map the various aspects of rail transport in France in detail. The basis for the successful use of RailSys at SNCF Transilien is in particular the high accuracy with which, for example, The French signaling systems BAL and BAPR as well as the European ERTMS can be mapped in RailSys.

In a large number of studies, SNCF Transilien has already provided RailSys with up-to-date planning solutions, in which traffic scenarios and timetable studies were examined and evaluated in regard to the expected operational quality. The proof of the robustness of transport offers is just as possible with RailSys as the proposal for infrastructural improvements (for example in signaling technology).

Together, SNCF Transilien and RMCon are seeking additional functional enhancements in RailSys to further increase their capabilities and modeling quality. Through the experience of working directly with SNCF Transilien (consulting and software development), all customers do benefit, to whom RMCon offers a wide range of services with the RailSys Software Suite!

With that said, the main aspects of working with RailSys were recently described in the Revue Générale des Chemins de Fer (June 2019).
