CABOOSE DISTRIBUTION MODEL

This computer program is an extension of the locomotive Distribution Model (17 131881) but incorporates added logic to handle the problem of different connection times at terminals where direction of inbound and outbound trains is a factor. Since the problem of variable classes associated with different types of locomotives is not present with cabooses, the model can be used to analyze total system caboose requirements.
