The New Dutch Timetable
In December 2006, Netherlands Railways introduced a completely new timetable. Its objective was to facilitate the growth of passenger and freight transport on a highly utilized railway network and ...
A comparison of five heuristics for the multiple depot vehicle scheduling problem
Given a set of timetabled tasks, the multi-depot vehicle scheduling problem consists of determining least-cost schedules for vehicles assigned to several depots such that each task is accomplished ...
Shunting of Passenger Train Units in a Railway Station
In this paper we introduce the problem of shunting passenger train units in a railway station. Shunting occurs whenever train units are temporarily not needed to operate a given timetable. We discu...
Integrating Timetabling and Crew Scheduling at a Freight Railway Operator
We investigate to what degree we can integrate a train timetabling/engine scheduling problem with a crew scheduling problem. In the timetabling/engine scheduling problem, we determine for each dema...
Delay Management Including Capacities of Stations
The question of delay management is whether passenger trains should wait for delayed feeder trains or should depart on time. Solutions to this problem strongly depend on the available capacity of t...
Multiple-Depot Integrated Vehicle and Crew Scheduling
TLDR
Two different models and algorithms for integrated vehicle and crew scheduling in the multiple-depot case are presented, both based on a combination of column generation and algorithms. Expand
