DYNAMIC MOVEMENT PREDICTION: AN ON-LINE RAILROAD SIMULATION MODEL

The Dynamic Movement Predictor is a FORTRAN event-step railroad simulation. It is initialized with yard inventories and consists of trains currently running from an on-line data base (i.e., RAILS: Rail-road Automated Identification and Location System). The user inputs block definitions, train schedules and marshalling instructions as well as expected traffic for nonautomated network points. The simulation generates yard and train reports as well as system cost statistics. The simulation system allows the user great flexibility in editing the input data and allows him to make tactical operating decisions, due to fast turn-around time.
