This report, Volume 7 of the 11-volume report on the master design simulator (MDS), describes the rail haulage subsystem. This subsystem can be used as a free-standing model or it can be linked to the production subsystem to provide rail haulage capability. Complex rail haulage systems can be realistically simulated with this model. This report includes complete instructions for operating the subsystem as well as a program listing. In addition, a case study is included that illustrates the application of the subsystem when it is linked to the production subsystem when it is linked to the production subsystem.
