Can't get to Disneyland right now? Then check out this simulator of the Disneyland transportation system called the Train Brain.

The Train Brain simulates Accelerated Time or Real Time Animation of a transit system in operation, displays pop-up schedules for each line, and has point and click station information, although the pop-up schedules and station information features don't seem to have been made operational for the Disneyland simulation.

However, the Disneyland simulation not only displays the Disneyland railroad and monorail (which works more reliably than the real DL monorail currently does!) but also the Main Street vehicles, all the riverboat and Columbia sailing ship, and even the Toontown trolley!

The Controls



Accelerated Time / Real Time
Two radio buttons on the Control Panel at the bottom of the screen allow the user to toggle from "Accelerated Time" to "Real Time". In Accelerated Mode, time runs fast so the user can watch as the trains rapidly flow in and out of downtown. In Real Time mode, the trains slowly move according to their actual positions.

Adjust Time
While running in Accelerated Mode a scroll bar labeled "Adjust Time" will be visible. This scroll bar’s pointer moves from left to right as the time of day advances. It can also be used to adjust the time of day by sliding its pointer to the left or right. Slide the pointer to the right to move ahead in time, or to the left to move back in time.

Adjust Speed
Also while running in Accelerated Mode, a scroll bar labeled "Adjust Speed" will be visible. Its pointer can be used to adjust the animation speed. Slide the pointer all the way to the left to bring time and the animation to a halt. Slide the pointer to the right and the trains will barely stay on the tracks!

The Train Brain is so cool!

One of the books I read says to study the map of Disneyland before arriving. That way you'll make better use of your time getting to where you want to go more efficiently. I understood that the train and the monorail stopped here and there but the Train Brain really helps put it in perspective for me.

I wish someone would make a simulator like that for the WDW resort! :nod:
