Modern subways operation relies on wireless systems based on IEEE802.11x modems deployed inside tunnels. Constraints on robustness and needs for high data rates led to the use of MIMO techniques. In order to evaluate performance of MIMO systems in dynamic configurations with moving trains, it is mandatory to develop adequate dynamic channel model. In this paper, the authors present a new WINNER based model for a subway tunnel at 5.8 GHz in a representative geometric configuration with two tracks and two crossing trains and a 4x4 MIMO system. The statistical behavior of the key parameters of the new WINNER scenario are derived from the complex impulse responses obtained with a 3D ray tracing simulator and given in this paper.
