Computer program which calculates most economical means of allocating a large fleet of locomotives of different kinds over a wide range of train service defined by route and by performance standard. The program assigns each type of locomotive to each train service but does not deal with the day-to-day location of each individual unit. This model uses the input from the FRATE movement cost program. It has been running successfully since May 1973, but means are being developed currently to improve the data input arrangement which is somewhat time consuming.
