HUMP YARD MODEL
This computer program determines facilities and resources necessary to operate a hump yard based on inputted traffic and schedules. It also determines the impact on yard operations of the Network Analysis Program scenarios. The original program as developed by USRA has been expanded to account for interference at pull-out end of yard. Hump yard traffic can be inputted via direct computer interface with Network Analysis Program.
