Train control systems surpassed trivial route settings and from classic solutions using discrete communication, detection, and interaction are evolving in online systems with continual communication, with multiple systems and subsystems oriented towards full control, safety, and security. Although apparently, the previous period was more than exciting in the regulation, standardization, and harmonization of railway traffic, the near future seems equally exciting. Multiple directions of development, intensive support of projects oriented towards new solutions, and the emergence of new solutions and improvements bring new levels of stability and give a good railway tone to the second quarter of the century. The paper distinguishes several subsystems widely used and points out current trends and research and development directions.
