Rail disruption: passenger focused recovery

Train delays in suburban railroads can impact subsequent trains, as well as passengers on the delayed train. When a train has been delayed, it is possible to reschedule that train, and sometimes subsequent trains, to minimize the effect on the whole system. This paper describes a method for rescheduling, in order to lessen the effect on passengers. It considers a double track railroad system, and takes into account boarding times at crowded train stations, the ability of trains to exclude and bypass stations, and passenger travel times.
