Abstract

This article gives an outline of Transport Link Scanner, a model developed to simulate transport network growth, and a case study in which that model is applied to simulate the historical development of the Dutch railway network. The article concentrates on model structure and discusses promising model accuracy results. The conclusions touch on plans for the future development and use of the Transport Link Scanner model.
