I am working with railway generalization by using ArcGIS ModelBuilder and my solution needs to involve that software. I need to "Combine/Convert" many parallel lines together into one wherever they are close to each other.

Beside use Merge Divided Road tool, does anybody know how to "Merge" many lines to one?

The left data should become the right.

The tool that I would try on this data is Integrate:

Analyzes the coordinate locations of feature vertices among features in one or more feature classes. Those that fall within a specified distance of one another are assumed to represent the same location and are assigned a common coordinate value (in other words, they are colocated). The tool also adds vertices where feature vertices are within the x,y tolerance of an edge and where line segments intersect.
