This paper presents an integrated information model for traffic planning, operation and management of railway lines, that has been implemented in the new control centre of the Madrid-Lleida high speed line. The long and mediumterm planning information is created with an off-line Planner Tool, generating a Operational Plan in XML format. This Plan contains data needed for real-time control (as train technical scheduling and infrastructure restrictions), crew and vehicle scheduling, passengers management (as commercial scheduling, transfers), and infrastructure cost assignment to train operators. The off-line Plan is exported to the operational network, and is the unique base information of every real-time system in this network: signalling control system, passenger information system and train supervision and delay control system. In the shortterm (operation), when it is necessary to modify the Plan with the on-line Planner Tool, real-time systems are immediately notified using a MOM bus and changes are updated, so coherence of information is guaranteed. In the same way, any event generated by a real-time system is notified to the rest, sharing real-time information. Da VINCI is the product that implements this design in the high speed rail control centre of Zaragoza.
