The high level of error which may lead to scads of damage which may be human life or material damage , inefficiency in supporting changes such as development of new high performance vehicles , time consuming inefficient system of operation leads one to consider an automated railway system . An automated control system which is introduced in this paper with the help of PLC and SCADA monitoring will have a significant effect in the permitting of having an increased speed form of transportation , augmenting services which can increase the full load capacity of a given network, while flexibility in the network will help in developing a system which can be improvised to change traffic control based on the traffic variations. The system provides other prominent benefits over there room temperature counterpart in reduced size , weight (increased power density) , efficiency , switching speed , reliability which will result in an overall weight , space , time saving and a save mode travel in the current society.
