Mixed integer programming for minimizing the period of a cyclic railway timetable for a single track with two train types


In this paper we extend work of Bergmann (1975) to investigate the capacity of a single track, unidirectional rail line that adheres to a cyclic timetable. A set of intermediate stations lies between an origin and destination with one siding at each station. Two types of trains—express and local—are dispatched from the origin in alternating fashion.
