Infrastructure model – a digital description of the railway

An infrastructure model provides a detailed digital description of the railway's functionality at track level. Several models have been created to reproduce both current and future infrastructure. The models are available for everyone in the NorRailView web application.

These functional infrastructure models are mainly used as:
• Input data in planning of bid development and robustness analyses (simulation)
• Ensuring the connection between infrastructure development, train services and train materials (dimensioning)
• Route modelling for tender development traffic packages.
• Basis for agreements on financing of infrastructure projects, e.g. new signal system

If the models are to be used in other software, they can easily be exported to railML2.4nor format from NorRailView.

View and download the models on NorRailView:

Future models will be available later.
