The author describes a simulation model applicable to the case of a line equipped with automatic block the "exit-from-line" of which gives multi-directional access. The model is constructed in modular form and is of the type with variable time increment (simulation in the form of separate distinct events). The model is well-suited for studying the stability of a train running schedule during peak hours, as a function of the signalling installation. It permits the sensitivity of the train schedules to different parameters to be determined: length of block sections, speed restriction zones, characteristics of the rolling stock, closure time of signal controlled from end of line. etc.
