Specification for CIF Data and SWOB Extraction
CIF (Common Interface File) data is supplied by Network Rail as a text file. It contains all available train running data for a specific route or station.
These files can be used in the preparation of SWOB (Station Working Order Book) files and to create a daily train timetable.
QSL has developed software that can extract SWOB files and train timetables from these files. CIF data can be used to create Master timetables for use in RCIS and Wise CIS systems.
