The Ministry of Transportation and Communications of Ontario, Canada has awarded a contract for the delivery of a Transit Demonstration System in 1975 which is to consist of 2.5 miles of elevated guideway, 4 stations and 12 vehicles. The system concept incorporates off-line stations, single vehicle and train operation, automatic driverless control, single sided linear induction motor (SLIM) propulsion and magnetically suspended and guided vehicles. The need to check the feasibility of a proposed magnetic suspension and guidance system led to the creation of a model on a hybrid computer. This model and some of the results are discussed.
