This version of the TPC computer program can operate in either of two modes: first, to derive the minimum running time and fuel consumption of a specifically defined train over a track segment; second, to determine tonnage ratings for various types of locomotives over specified territories. Track profile and speed restrictions for the entire System, as well as locomotive characteristics, are maintained on tape and are automatically extracted for input to a TPC run. Dynamic braking is included within the model logic.
