The cyber-physical systems are a set of mathematical modeling, dynamic, physical, electric, pneumatic characteristics and the systems of simulation now. Its realization allows providing training of the person for an important problem of the modern century, namely competent, fast and high-quality decision-making and complex measures for the safety of the environment and technogenic factors. In simulators, the principles of practical skills development with the integral theoretical preparation are applied. The model of modern networks allows improving constantly systems remotely, to collect information on the quality and extent of threats and to carry out constant completion of the model. These opportunities appeared thanks to the development of such information technologies like virtual reality technologies, machine sight and also the systems of artificial intelligence. One of the most successful branches of the world information industry can note the sphere of simulation technologies. Each profession has some of the most important processes defining the quality and safety of the work. For the train driver, it is the perception of a railway situation in a variety of its manifestations (structures, people on the ways, railway signs, traffic lights, etc.), the analysis and processing of the arriving information and performance of action for control of special rolling stock depending on a surrounding situation. In the article, the development stages of the virtual simulator cyber-physical system intended for drivers-operators training in control of the rectifying and lining and leveling Duomatic 09-32 machine are considered.
