The aim of this chapter is to stray a little closer towards the region straddling the academic–industry plane, and explore the topic of train simulation. Train simulation has rapidly gained momentum in recent years, and in doing so, cultivated a number of different approaches and definitions in the treatment and practice of simulating reality. This chapter contains information that will be very useful for academic researchers, but is primarily aimed at rail industry subject matter experts, particularly senior train drivers, train crew training managers and general managers of train service delivery who are interested in evaluating train simulator technology. It will discuss the most pertinent issues, and clarify simulator design, use and management, towards defining classes of simulator that may be used for various goals.
