Towards a robust traffic timetable for the Swedish Southern Mainline

On-time performance was chosen as a major variable to evaluate the robustness to disturbances of a railroad timetable. Two single services on the Swedish Southern Mainline were evaluated during Autumn 2011. The author studied the en route performance of the railroad line to analyze train punctuality. A customer oriented timetable was calculated that included a trade-off between short travel time and accurate punctuality. Punctuality was not improved by this formula.
