OpenRail ConceptStation

Rapid conceptual designs

Conceptual Rail Design Software

Quick-start rail projects by rapidly creating conceptual designs and improving the decision-making process.

OpenRail ConceptStation offers rail, electrification, tunnel, and bridge design capabilities to help rail engineers and designers create intelligent models in context. Evaluate conceptual design options with real-world data and cost analysis to rapidly determine optimal designs. 

Utilise data acquisition, reality modelling, and conceptual design to eliminate high-cost and high-risk items in the preliminary and planning design stages of your rail network projects. 

Pricing and Purchase
Design electrification systems

Design electrification systems

Enhance your conceptual track designs with overhead line electrification systems from libraries of masts and portals catering for single and double cantilevers and wire runs with stagger and overlaps, all while adhering to industry design standards. 

Evaluate viable track alternatives

Generate multiple design scenarios with associated costs for better decision making. Quickly evaluate designs to optimise rail, electrification, tunnel, and bridge designs to address criteria such as clearances and cost assessment for each concept. Input your own historical financial model to ensure realistic cost information as you determine the best alternative to move forward into detailed design.

Incorporate contextual information including reality meshes

Incorporate contextual information including reality meshes

Jump-start the conceptual design process by locating and downloading data-rich context information for a given location or use 3D output from Bentley ContextCapture to model in a real-world setting. Add data you already have such as GIS and DGN to get more detail in your 3D models.

Layout conceptual track designs

Design your railway with object-oriented capabilities to create track geometry for mainline, yards, stations, and sidings. Add turnouts, crossovers, and other furniture in hours not days using engineering-friendly design capabilities, all while adhering to industry design standards.

Render in realtime with cinematic quality

Render in realtime with cinematic quality

Create stunning photo-realistic visualisations in seconds using dynamic immersive visualisation engine platform providing natural looking light and shadows, real-time global illumination, IES point and spotlights, lens flares, and luminous materials. Interactively adjust time of day, add lens flares, and apply depth of field while benefiting from highly accurate reflections, anti-aliasing, and motion blur.

Key features

  • Locate and download online, data-rich context from a variety of sources, such as point clouds, 3D reality meshes, terrain data, images, and geospatial information to bring real-world settings to your rail project. 

  • Use 3D modelling with easy-to-use engineering sketching capabilities to quickly conceptualise rail, electrification, tunnel, and bridge designs.

  • Rapidly generate multiple design scenarios with associated project costs, and share with project teams and stakeholders to choose the best option.

  • Share realistic visualisations with the public and stakeholders to gather feedback, improve public engagements, and speed project approvals.
