Give this a quick read, it might give you an idea of what you can do with Ignition

How are you receiving the information about where the locomotive is located on the tracks?

We have to know how your getting the information (OPC?) in order to know how it will communicate with Ignition.

yes, we will use opc ua protocol. I think communication will not be a problem. I do not understand what is the best way to display it. I can use ready-made primitives and just move them, or should I develop my own widgets?

You'll probably want to make your own widgets using templates and the drawing tools.
