Consensus on tagging train stop based train protection systems

Currently many train stop based systems such as “Bernauer-Fahrsperre” and “CTS/M” (used by many subway systems, like Berlin, Hamburg or Monterrey) aren’t properly tagged. The Wiki also doesn’t mention how to tag them, so I wanted to use this thread to discuss what tags we want to use to do so. I have two proposals:

  • Use a common tag for these systems, since they aren’t highly sophisticated and all only serve the purpose to prevent running over a red signal. (railway:mmts = Mechanical and Magnetic train stop)
  • Tag each system with it’s own tag. (railway:befs, railway:ctsm, etc.)
