We address the problem of generating a global detailed conflict-free railway schedule for a given set of train lines and frequencies and we propose a decomposition of the railway network into condensation and compensation zones in order to solve the train scheduling problem. Condensation zones lie in the proximity of main stations, where available capacity is limited and trains are therefore required to travel with maximum speed. On the other hand, traffic is less dense in the compensation… CONTINUE READING
