Abstract

The model railway - an integrated approach to system design and simulation Mark G Eaden Brown & Root Services Abstract This paper will describe the systems approach to Railway Infrastructure Computer Aided Design on the Thameslink 2000 programme. It will describe the development of our Model Railway. The paper will describe the philosophy that drives our systems approach. This project is taking deliberate steps to ensure that data produced through each stage of scheme development can be used as a stepping stone for subsequent stages. Each step along the road to completion of the programme has been assessed and providing we remain focused on the deliverables, we can ensure full integration of the railway disciplines. With the increased certainty that will come from this integration, we can reduce the adverse risks associated with a lack of knowledge. We are building a fully three dimensional, true to scale, animated and interactive model of the proposed new railway infrastr
