SIMTRAN

Computer program, a successor of the SIMNET-1 and SIMNET-II Network Models, has major emphasis placed on customer service reliability. Major input data files (train service, blocking policies, terminal and track descriptions, traffic parameters) are automatically maintained by project identification. Output reports are produced on an exception basis, as requested. Satellite jobs automatically create traffic and train service data for the "standard" Southern Network from existing computer files. Logic of the main simulation module has been expanded to include locomotive distribution as an integral part of the simulation. The system is designed to accommodate up to 125 terminals (nodes) and up to sixteen traffic destinations at a terminal. Disc is used to keep track of individual car records.
