1. Real-time signalling system/train movement data at a signalling 
berth/train describer/track circuit level
2. Signalling system states, e.g. signal aspects, routes set from 
signals, "train ready to start" indications
3. Timetable data, updated daily or more frequently, with internal 
identification for services (e.g. train number), catering, reservations 
and a list of calling and passing points
4. Real-time train movement at standard measurement points, e.g. 
stations or junctions
5. Incident data, updated as the incident progresses
6. Delay data to individual trains
7. Shapefiles containing routes and identifiers, stations/junctions and 
their location codes, and individual track layout
8. Vehicle data, linking a service (e.g. train 9123) with a formation 
(e.g. Class 373, 14 carriages, 1st Class toward the rear)
9. Disaggregated performance data for each operator/route, etc.

I can probably think of more...
