RFC S-CTC
In Danish RFC is short for Regional Control Center, and the RFC S-CTC covers the three regional control centers in Denmark (click for map):

The RFC in the Copenhagen controls the line from Helsingor to the North to the new airport station in Kastrup and the crossing to Sweden.

The RFC in Roskilde covers the line from East of Copenhagen accros the Great Belt Bridge and Tunnel to Odense on the island of Fuen.

The RFC in Fredericia takes over in Odense and controls the line to Vejle in the North to the German border at Padborg in the South.

The purpose of RailSoft's S-CTC-project is to maintain a high standard of education and training among the staff of the three RFCs.

In the simulation the »students« may experience situations which are diffucult to train in real life, and the simulation is also intended for the Railway Authority's bi-yearly exams for all staffmembers in the RFCs.


As in real life the RFC S-CTC runs on
four monitors, each of which can show
a section of the controlled area
or details of a station.

Thanks to advanced networking
 the S-CTC may run an virtually 
any TCP/IP network, even the Internet. 

This opens for several »studens« 
to work together and for instructors to alter 
the course of a scenario in real time 
testing the »student's« abillity to react correctely.

The S-CTC can supply a wealth of information not available to real life CTC.

This sample screen shows real time data on all trains travelling with in the controlled area. This may give the »student« a better understanding of the impact of his or hers actions on the actual traffic pattern.

The S-CTC may also maintain a simplified view from the driver's seat showing cab signal and signals along the line as well.
