Trains consist of vehicles connected using coupling systems, draw gears, chains, or solid bars. Rail vehicles, or rolling stock, can be custom-defined with specific dimensions and characteristics, such as mass, strength, geometry, braking and driving force capabilities, and bogie configurations. DigitalTrains™ also offers a library of vehicle templates to get started with your train assembly.
Key Vehicle Properties
Vehicles have unique geometrical properties and mass.
These sub-assemblies include suspension systems, brakes, and traction motors.
Vehicles are fitted with couplings to connect auxiliary services, transmit loads, and absorb longitudinal shocks.
Vehicles must conform to specific train gauges and clear infrastructure constraints.
Vehicle body structures and crash boxes, are designed to deform in a predetermined manner during collisions.
