© 2018 IEEE. We report on the development of an Agent Based Model of a train derailment incident, considering a number of factors including friction and flange angle. We describe the background and objectives, and use the Rushall derailment as a Case Study. We use the NetLogo modeling environment to build our model. We describe the workings of the model. Two scenarios involving frequency of maintenance are tested using the model. We observe unexpected (emergent) results in one case.
