Using simulation modeling to assess rail track infrastructure in densely trafficked metropolitan areas

M.M. Dessouky, Quan Lu, R.C. Leachman
Proceedings of the Winter Simulation Conference  
We present a simulation modeling methodology to assess the rail track infrastructure in highly dense traffic areas.  ...  There are three major challenges in modeling a rail network in a densely trafficked metropolitan area.  ...  SIMULATION RESULTS The simulation model is used to assess the feasibilities of various alternatives proposed to improve the rail network's capacity in the Los Angeles-Inland Empire Trade Corridor.  ...
