The MR-1000 rail simulator is a self-contained fully interactive simulator designed to train and assess train operators.


The MR-1000 has:

one or more visual displays
a Student Train Operation Station (STOS) with an operator’s desk controls to operate the train. Depending on training needs, the operator’s desk/control stand can include interchangeable panels for the operation of different types of traction units on the same simulator.
the STOS includes two-way communication allowing the student to talk with a role-playing instructor during the training exercises.
a Fault Workstation. The fault workstation assists in the training of detection, diagnosis and rectification of simulator faults.
one to four Closed Circuit Television cameras to allow the instructor to monitor the student while operating the simulator. The cameras can be set to view the student, controls, fault workstation or a combination as needed.
s variety of training scenarios
managed scoring information
a sound system that generates appropriate sounds for the traction unit being simulation—under all operating conditions
an Instructor Operator Station
an observer station to facilitate associative learning trainees not directly involved in a simulation run.


FAAC creates simulators to meet the training objectives of any organization. Such considerations include the operator driving station, cab environment, controls, visual display requirements, virtual driving environment and any custom software and geo-specific databases.
FAAC has converted real locomotive operator compartments into training simulators so that the student is trained in the actual operating environment they will experience in their daily routine.
This driving simulator is custom configured to the requirements and training objectives of the customer. The OEM equipment found in the actual vehicle can be made to function to the real-time simulation.
