The objective of this Standard is to provide technical requirements for interior and exterior rolling stock lighting and visibility. This includes conspicuity of rolling stock in day and night times and consideration of environmental factors affecting visibility of rolling stock.

Technical changes from previous editions of this Standard include:

  • Additional content provided for LED lighting;
  • Additional requirements for forward visibility lights;
  • Livery design considerations; and
  • Additional maintenance planning requirements.

The requirements and recommendations provided in this Standard are derived from current validated practice in the Australian rail industry. This Standard supports innovation whilst remaining technology agnostic by providing permissive clauses and guidance material that RTOs should utilise to supplement the requirements and recommendations where deemed appropriate to do so by the applicable RTO.
