    I've read an article that India might be pushing towards 160kmph limits on some mainlines which will have ECTS2 and TPWS. TPWS I'm somewhat familiar with from Train Sim World 2 but haven't heard about ECTS can anyone share their knowledge about this? As an Indian im very curious what kind of railway safety system's are we bringing in.

    It's an In Cab signalling system standard specified by the EU - the idea is to avoid vendor lock in as the kit all works to a common set of standards while allowing crossborder traffic without needing 12 different signalling systems. While it originated in Europe it's seen adoption outside because of it's open nature compared with other systems.

    It works like LZB from a drivers perspective in that there is a countdown to the next limit change or red - but the instructions are sent to the train using GSM-R. On track there are balises every km or so to calibrate the train's position.
