On busy congested rail networks, randomdelays of trains are prevalent, and these delays have knock-on effects which result in a signi®cant or substantial proportion of scheduled services being delayed or rescheduled. Here we develop and experiment with a simulation model to predict the probability distributions of these knock-on delays at stations, when faced with typical patterns of on-the-day exogenous delays. These methods can be used to test and compare the reliability of proposed schedules… CONTINUE READING
