When large junctions of railway polygons are studied, detailed modeling is subject to some limitations. Therefore, it is necessary to develop appropriate tools. This paper presents an aggregate (macromodeling) technique for necks and yards of railway stations. Results of calculations based on aggregate models are highly consistent with results of detailed modeling, which confirms the applicability of this modeling method to railway polygons. The proposed principles were implemented on the basis
