This paper we describe the on-going specification and development of Radio Block Center (RBC), a component of the new-generation Chinese Rail Train Control System (CTCS). The RBC will be responsible of managing the high speed (350 km/h) movement of trains equipped with radio communication. Although large-scale and complex RBC is safety and stability system, as a high level of safety system it must provide a safety services in any case. A new Hot Standby control system as real-time backup system when the CTCS system have any accident, in order to control the high speed of the train and keep it safe, thus providing a high level of confidence in their safety in a cost-effective way.
