Eglinton maintenance and storage facility project
Friday, 31 August 2018 00:00

During the summer of 2018, we have successfully executed a simulation study of Eglinton maintenance and storage facility for LRV in Toronto (within the frame of Eglinton Crosstown Light Rail Transit project). The goal of the study was to verify the feasibility of facility operation on proposed infrastructure, considering multiple timetable variants with different train configurations. Besides maintenance, cleaning and storage capacity of the facility, the simulation model also reflected the constraints of proposed OCS design (restrictions in power supply for electric LRVs). The main evaluation criteria was the timely provision of LRV trains for revenue service after maintenance and cleaning.
