Abstract

Rapid changes in operational training requirements, coupled with advancements in computer simulation technology, has seen the development of standalone operational training simulators for railways. While effective, recent investigations have shown the need to train railway operating teams more effectively. The first part of this paper outlines methods for developing the training needs for an integrated operational training facility which incorporates; station control, central control and driving cab simulators into one combined unit. The second part of the paper proposes a conceptual system design and concludes with a chal
