The railway operations laboratory is used for student training in railroad operations. An extensive H0 model railway with several stations enables practical and didactically high-quality knowledge transfer. We show how the interaction of infrastructure, modern technology and the acting persons leads to a safe train operation. Short guided tours are offered and trains may also be driven through the laboratory.
