Various radio communication systems are used in railway systems such as Communications Based Train Control (CBTC) systems, passenger information service systems, wireless sensor networks, etc. Designing or evaluating work to build radio communication systems used on railways is time consuming and expensive, given today's environment. Thus, as a contribution to this work, this paper describes the development of a simulation method to calculate transmission characteristics (receiving power, strength of interferences, bit error rates, flame loss rates, delays, etc.) with considering the railway-specific environment and usage. This paper describes features of the developed simulator and examples of simulation results.
