Abstract : Trainset is a real-time simulation of a railroad. The software consists of a simulator, an interactive graphics editor for defining railroad layouts and graphics monitor programs for displaying the state of the railroad and manually controlling it. Two communications interfaces to the simulator are provided. (a) The control program interface (CPI) is used by computer programs that control Trainset railroads. The CPI consists of library routines and data structures, collectively call the ACI (Automatic Control Interface), and low- level message formats and related facilities, called the LLI(Low-level Interface). (b) The monitor interface is used only by the graphics monitor programs.
