In this contribution a general purpose test facility for train control systems called RAIL LAB is presented. Due to the generic and modular approach this RAIL LAB can be used for the conformity test-ing of ERTMS/ETCS components. The on board unit and the trackside subsystem can be simulated or tested as real Hardware-in-the-loop component. The physical train and the railway network is substi-tuted by simulators. All the communication subsystems like Radio, Balise or Loop are replaced by simulators, which are based on transmission error models. For the validation of the operational safety and behaviour manual tests can be used as well as predefined test sequences. The current implementa-tion phase is related to the on board and the trackside part of the train control system, further steps are related e. g. to the driver desk and the interlocking interface.
