Maritime Simulation

The CSX  A-Line route contains 4 drawbridges on the route, but there’s no simulation of bridge operations in the sim.  So 3rd party developers have made up some simple operations.

TSCAD included some simulation within their A-Line dispatch boards to simulate the opening/closing of the bridges.

Bridges take 80-90 seconds to raise or lower. 60 seconds after an occupancy has cleared, the bridge will auto-raise (assuming nothing else is aligned over the bridge). This simulates a local request for the bridge to be raised. I have not included any simulation for boats to make actual requests


rtsbridgesimRailroad Transportation Simulator also released a Maritime Simulation app that dispatchers can use to simulate random boat traffic requests.  It’s a standalone application and not linked to Run 8 or any dispatcher application. It is available for download at the bottom of the RTS homepage.
