Abstract

A train traffic operation and planning simulator B. Sandblad*, A. Andersson*, K-E. Jonsson*, P. Hellstrom^ P. Lindstrom^ J. Rudolf, J. Stored, M.

The new simulator system is based on a previously developed simulation kernel, SIMON/TTS, which has been used by the Swedish National Rail Administration for off line planning experiments. The SIMON/TTS system has now been redesigned into an interactive, real-time simulator where external control and presentation systems can be conne
