Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

SCMT was developed after ETCS

Do you know that for fact? I couldn't find when the development of SCMT started, only when deployment started (2003). However, that's close enough in time to ETCS (development start: 1996, first line tests: 1999, first commercial ETCS L1 line: 2001) to be parallel developments. At any rate, SCMT deployment started before the directives mandating ETCS on conventional lines (2004 onwards), and simultaneously with ETCS L2 deployment on new high-speed lines in Italy.
