— Train services are planned in detail, defining several months in advance the train order and timing at crossings, junctions and platform tracks. A robust timetable is able to deal with minor perturbations even though in case of large delays or blocking of some tracks multiple timetable modifications are required in order to recover the feasibility of(More)
A system analysis approach is presented for investigation of train operations in railway stations based on network, timetable and train detection data. The estimated blocking times, buffer times and track occupancies are compared with real operations data recorded automatically by track circuits. Statistical analysis of train operations between two Dutch(More)

In the last years, real-time railway traffic optimization experienced an increasing interest due to the expected growth of traffic and the limited possibilities of enhancing the infrastructure, which ask for a more efficient use of resources and the application of more advanced decision support tools. This paper presents a computerized train dispatching(More)
The railway system is vulnerable to disruptions that require careful management of available infrastructure capacity in order to keep operations feasible and attractive for passengers and for the environment. Dispatchers manage traffic with a limited view on the network impact of their actions. Effective large scale dispatching solutions are required to(More)
