This paper proposes a scenario-based modelling approach using CPNs (Coloured Petri Nets) and conducts the ASK-CTL model checking for the established CPN model with the CPN Tools in order to achieve a consistent and correct model for further software implementation. In this paper, we focus on the application of the proposed approach in railway domain, i.e. train control systems. In particular, the on-board subsystem of a satellite-based train control system (called SatZB) is modelled.
