New Metrorail Training Simulator

Metro Transit Police Chief Ronald Pavlik speaking about the importance of the simulator for safety in the Metrorail system.

Loudoun County just opened a new Metrorail Training Simulator located at the Oliver Robert Dubé Fire and Rescue Training Academy in Leesburg. The simulator is comprised of two retired 4000-series railcars from the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA). The simulator also has two parallel sections of track with a high-voltage third rail to help first responders train to respond to emergencies within the Metrorail system. The Metrorail Training Simulator will make Silver Line riders safer.
