A Symphony Orchestra is made up of strings, woodwind, horn and percussion sections but without a musical composition and a skilled conductor they will never produce the desired effect on the listener. Train simulators are also made up of many functional components but without carefully considered training content that is integrated into a wider training curriculum and supported by skilled and well-trained facilitators, simulators cannot be expected to reach their full potential. This paper will examine the socio-cultural environment of the rail organizations in which simulators exist and discuss possible reasons for the failure of them to be used to maximum effect. A set of success factors will be presented that need to be considered in order to improve simulator use. Possible methodologies for improving the content of simulations and the way in which they support critical decision-making schema of drivers will also be discussed and the need to develop specific simulator facilitation skills among training staff will be examined. © Springer International Publishing AG, part of Springer Nature 2018.
