The train case study is tackled with the ACCORD method developed at the CEA-LETI. This approach aims to provide a framework for real-time development as close as possible to classic object oriented methods. Thanks to high level abstractions (namely the real-time active object concept) real-time modeling can be achieved without mixing up implementation issues with domain specific one. This approach maximizes reusability and designers may fully benefit from object oriented experience acquired in other domains. In the first part of this paper, we rapidly describe the ACCORD CASE tool, especially the method step and the underlying models. In this part, we will describe too the Framework itself and the automatic implementation aspect. Second we will go back through each stage of the method by illustrating them thanks to the train control example.  We focus on the real-time aspects and we will try to answer to both the main questions: How and where real-time may be specified?
