Design Rail and Overhead Line with OpenRail

Multidiscipline rail design

Design complex tasks with ease

Redefine how rail and transit infrastructure is designed, built, and operated with multidiscipline data exchange and handover to support construction through maintenance with Bentley’s rail software. 

  • Improve workflows,
  • optimize project delivery,
  • and improve overall service, safety, and reliability. 
OpenRail Concept Station

Rapid Conceptual Rail Designs

Create conceptual track design including rail geometry, electrification, tunnels, and bridge design to evaluate more options, identify high-risk items, and minimize cost.

  • Quick-start rail projects by rapidly creating conceptual designs.
  • Layout conceptual track designs.
  • Design conceptual electrification systems.
  • Deliver real-time visualization of actual design content without the need for a dedicated visualization specialist.
OpenRail Designer

Detailed Rail Track Design and Analysis in one Application

Streamline project delivery and design of rail network assets from concept through commissioning and completion.

One software application for all your metro, light rail, commuter rail, or high-speed rail design project needs. Save time on the design and maintenance of track, station, and yard assets while significantly increasing productivity.

  • Design and analyze rail corridors
  • Design and place rail signals
  • Outline rail track drainage systems
  • Automate drawing production
OpenRail Overhead Line Designer

BIM for Rail Electrification

Deliver 3D to overhead line catenary systems, and foster the development of digital twins.

  • Rapidly model design intent of rail overhead lines
  • Address industry BIM requirements
  • Manage change quickly and efficiently with design standardization and automation tools

OpenRail Overhead Line Designer introduces a new, comprehensive modeling environment for rail overhead line and track design. Developed jointly by Bentley Systems and Siemens Mobility, it combines OpenRail Designer technology with Sicat Master. 

Implementation of digital twin technology will significantly decrease production time of construction deliverables, including plan layouts, reports and detailed structural erection diagrams.

The 'OPEN' modeling environment
