The railway Station Management System (SMS) is a vital component of the modern railway system. However, Thailand is working to modernise its railway and has an insufficient SMS training platform. This article presents the development of an SMS simulation using the Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) system concept, including reliability modelling with reliability block diagrams for training in Thailand. Its main functions are for control, alarm monitoring, and data event simulation of integrated systems in a railway station. The various subsystems are both the power supply system and facility management systems, including the operation of low-voltage power supply, lift and escalator, security, fire protection, pump and drainage, environment control, and platform screen door. We developed an SMS training system that consists of both hardware and software components. This system demonstrates how SCADA in the railway station functions and improves training for the student and railway operator.
