The axle counter as a train detector is one of the important railway signaling devices for accurate and safe train control systems. This paper deals with a design optimization of the axle counter by large-scale magnetic field computations. To efficiently reduce the computational burden in the optimization, we accurately estimate the signaling level by applying infinite edge elements to an extensive air domain, which results in a practical design approach within an acceptable CPU-time.
