OpsModel is a static analysis tool developed to model train operations over a single-track railway with passing sidings.

SYSTRA Canada uses this model to assess maximum line capacity and to quantify the delays resulting from train meets and their impact on overall running and train cycle times.


The software can be an invaluable tool for optimizing an investment strategy by studying the point at which it is financially advantageous to construct additional passing loops to reduce train delays and cycle times rather than procure additional rolling stock.
