This computer program determines operating impacts of alternative blocking and scheduling policies and of various train lengths. It will also permit development of transportation contingency plans and evaluate network effects of proposed additions and improvements. The program requires the user to develop a blocking and scheduling strategy as input. Traffic is developed using the design day concept. The program moves traffic according to strategy and tabulates the result. This program was developed by SRI and is written in CDC Fortran. Conrail's version is a source code conversion to IBM Fortran. Selected user enhancements have been added.
