Your PC*MILER|Rail-BatchPro installation comes with several sample input files, including:
One SPLC Per Line – Standard Routing
The records in the sample file BP_SPLC_OnePerLine_Std.in include one SPLC per line as shown below. From left to right in this file, each record includes a SPLC, a railroad, the empty/loaded status of the car, the initials contained in the car ID, and the car ID number. In this type of one-per-line input, there must be a car number or ID for each record to distinguish where a trip starts and ends. In this sample file, three trips are listed (for cars 123456, 234567, and 999999).
One O/D Pair Per Line – AutoRouting
Each record in the sample file BP_StationNameState_Pair_AR.in includes only an origin and a destination in station/state format. Because there is no railroad information, all possible routes will be generated.
