There is strong motivation for having rail technology that is both international and interoperable. The practice, however, of moving technology that works well in one operational setting to another is not straightforward. This paper takes one type of technology, traffic control automation, and looks at variability between two contexts – GB and Sweden. The output from this work is a socio-technical framework which will be used to asses the viability of applying new advances in traffic management across a number of EU countries.
